How do you get a new server?

Our server portfolio includes configurations that, in our experience, are suitable for the majority of applications. All of these systems are monitored, maintained and backuped by us.

Please fill out the forms below carefully. Incorrect and incomplete information may lead to queries and therefore delays.

The set-up/roll-out/deployment of one of the systems listed in our portfolio should generally take approximately one week. We will be in touch with you as soon as possible after the system has been installed.

If none of the configurations down below fit your needs, please request another server. Please consider that building a freely defined system may take a bit longer than one included in the portfolio. Please also keep in mind that our resources are limited and we are bound by the guidelines set by the IT Security Officer/administrator.

If you need basic consultation/advice, please see our page on counselling.

If you need a physical system, please work out purchasing and licensing in advance. We are happy to assist with technical questions.

Please also be aware that some operating systems require licensing. If you have any questions regarding licenses for operating systems or licensing in general, please contact help@helmholtz-berlin.de.

Please also refer to the pages of the IT Security Officer and the IT User Regulations.
