We use maxcluster's managed hosting services not only for our customers' e-commerce projects. CMS-driven corporate websites and applications developed individually by us also benefit greatly from the high-performance setup provided by maxcluster.

maxcluster has convinced us with its competent, friendly and above all fast support. When discrepancies arise, they are quickly resolved and communicated transparently. At the same time, the people from Paderborn distinguish themselves through a love of detail with foresight. The performance is first-class.

Béla Yannik Hahne

basecom is your software service provider for complex e-commerce and open source software projects. With maxcluster we have found a perfect partner for hosting our applications. The support we receive is unique, fast and always goal-oriented.

Torben Höhn

We have been working with maxcluster for 4 years. The support is excellent, the competence unbeatable, the feedback on support requests very fast and detailed. We were previously with the "big players". Here, in contrast to maxcluster, you are not taken seriously as a customer. There is nothing I would improve. Thank you and keep up the good work.
