About Us


We, as cloudbuddies, focus 100% on the public cloud and the Big4 – we have no past and deal exclusively with public cloud solutions, services and their operation.

Importantly, our promising future is not affected by our rather short past, as we are well-experienced and have the necessary financial strength.

The cloudbuddies already have a combined 120 years of project experience, 75 individual cloud-certifications and an incredible enthusiasm for the unlimited opportunities of digital transformation.


Dr. Nils Kaufmann

Managing Director

“My dream has always been to build a circle of excellence. That’s why we founded cloudbuddies. We bring together the most exciting personalities and the best cloud experts, which all share the three cloudbuddies principles: tolerance, curiosity and respect.”

Dagmar Ziegler

Managing Director

“The role of the cloudbuddies is always first and foremost to be high performers in serving our customers. Every service and every action must be measured by the success of our customers.

Oliver Schallhorn

Managing Director

“We founded cloudbuddies in 2019 with a crystal-clear mission: We simply offer our customers and partners the best solutions and managed cloud services on all relevant hyperscaler platforms.

Our Principles

Practice what you preach

Internally, the cloudbuddies use only the latest cloud technologies of relevant providers, work according to agile methods and have “more roles and less titles“, but are never dogmatic and missionary, but always utilitarian according to the motto: Good is what is useful. Authenticity, competence and transparency form the basis for a trusting and successful cooperation.

Best of Breed

The currently best solution for the individual task. Although the term originally comes from software development, the cloudbuddies have taken this agnostic approach to a holistic level. The methods, techniques, tools or platforms that are best suited to a particular requirement are determined by the workload, the customer situation and the project goal.

The Customer is our Partner

With cloudbuddies, every action must be geared to the needs and success of our customers. From the onboarding of new buddies, to the selection of tools, to the implementation of the latest cloud services, every decision must ultimately be based on the final question: Does this make our customers more successful or not? If yes, then welcome to the cloudbuddies. If not, then “hasta la vista”.
