Im März 2015 gab es eine Änderung des Vorgehens in den Projekten für unseren Kunden DB Cargo hin zu einer agilen Arbeitsweise durch das Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). Einer der notwendigen Erfolgsfaktoren durch diese Transformation ist die Etablierung eines DevOps Teams, welches die Projekte innerhalb des aufgebauten Agile Release Trains (ART) befähigt, Software kontinuierlich in der von uns angestrebten Qualität zu liefern. Die in diesem Team eingesetzten Mitarbeiter der wintercloud GmbH & Co. KG haben das Thema AWS Cloud vorangebracht. Das Team von wintercloud hat unsere Entwicklungsteams bei der Entwicklung Cloud-fähiger Software unterstützt.
Let's Build Better Clouds Together - We are passionate Cloud-Natives and your CI/CD Experts. Our aim is to implement maintainable, secure, and preferably serverless CI/CD workflows for every business. We want everyone to benefit from more stable services and faster feature releases. Based on our experience, cloud and CI/CD combine well together as you can design CI/CD workflows way more flexible to save infrastructure costs. We start with the design of your Git staging concept, then continue to architect your secure cloud infrastructure in order to finally deploy your software to operate as a highly available cloud-optimized application. During the life cycle of the project we facilitate a well-proven continuous knowledge transfer.
Based on the idea to deploy and operate serverless infrastructures, meaning non permanently running, thus cold (--> winter) infrastructures in the cloud, we founded wintercloud in 2015. If you look closely, you will see a Lambda sign in our logo, which is the symbol for functional programming in serverless architectures. Our principle to only release well-tested software and architectures led us quickly to focus on a comprehensive CI/CD practice, which works very well in combination with serverless patterns. As passionate we are about CI/CD we are serious about security in the cloud. Based on our roots we focus on serverless security services.
Starting with serverless implementations based on AWS lambda, our business grew up with AWS and we supported the biggest AWS customer in Germany to deploy their first applications cloud optimized. By now we even operate our own CI/CD BUILT4.CLOUD SaaS solutions. We are passionate open-source contributors and find the Cloud-Native & Open-Source mix that suits you best. To implement CI/CD concepts and architectures in the cloud for you is our aim and the meaning behind wintercloud.

Our office is centrally located in Heidelberg close to the central train station and easy to reach. The building was home to the former fire station of Heidelberg - now it is managed by Dezernat 16, a hub for creative and innovative companies. Here we can engage in cross-sector collaborations and create sustainable synergies with our direct neighbors. On the picture below you can find us in the left wing of the building. Stop by when you are in the area!
Our added value
Clients who trust us
We always appreciate it when our clients provide us with feedback. Here is a selection of them in the language of our client.
At Forest Technologies we strive to provide our customers with the best possible solution. To achieve that we rely on a well architected and secure infrastructure in AWS with Production environments as well as several testing environments where we can run our automated dev/test workflows. The team at wintercloud helped us to set up an easily maintainable and flexible cloud solution leveraging the latest tools and technologies to keep us one step ahead and ensure costs are optimised.
Julian and I got to know and appreciate each other in March 2020. He supported us in setting up a modern data platform (MDP) as a Security and DevOps expert and made a significant contribution to further development and maturity. If anyone in the market can do DevSecOps, then Julian. Not only technically, but in terms of the team structure, Julian is excellent, as he can diplomatically deal with resistance in order to ultimately achieve his and the project goals. He is an enormous asset to any AWS project.
Automic's Engineering organization constantly faces the challenge of making complex applications and environments available to dispersed development teams as easy and seamless as possible. Thanks to the expertise of our partners at wintercloud and a close cooperation, we are able to offer friction free services to their developers making use of the flexibility and scalability of Amazon's cloud architecture.
Bei wintercloud beeindruckt uns die hohe Kompetenz in allen Cloud- und Automatisierungsaufgaben. Das Unternehmen demonstriert eindrucksvoll, wie die Besonderheiten der Cloud-Computing-Architektur zum Vorteil von Kundenanwendungen genutzt werden. Außerdem haben beide Unternehmen ein ähnliches Verständnis über die Bedeutung einer regionalen Cloud. Mit unserer gebündelten Expertise sind wir künftig starke Partner für die digitale Transformation unserer mittelständischen Kunden.
