Our company,
our employees and ideas.

About racksnet® – the brand and about the people who make it real.

Nomen est Omen

Our name combines the words “Rack(s)” and “Net” and is a synonym for the connection of hardware racks with the world of the Internet or network (Net).

The name reflects what we and our solutions are essentially doing. We are now bringing those components into the Net which, although themselves only partially net-capable, have always had to ensure that the Net exists in its present form. Switches, routers, access points etc.

Proactive action

Our vision | Just everything - and that as easy as possible

We at racksnet® have the vision to make the automation of IT network tasks much easier, safer and faster than ever before.

We want to help to make the daily work of IT specialists in large enterprises as well as for administrators in smaller companies easier, to make tasks and processes less complicated. That’s why we develop solutions that are multifunctional but always intuitively easy to use. That means they can be operated without any specialist knowledge.

” The key to realizing our vision lies in the completely new DNA of our network automation software. And our codes are called “Open Networking” and “Multi-vendor”

Kick start

Our mission | freedom in your decisions for the benefit of your company

Our next-generation cloud-based multi-vendor automation software already exceeds the goals of the Open Networking Foundation.

By consistently eliminating technical restrictions, such as the inflexible “vendor lock-in”, and by integrating all network-relevant functions under one single user interface, the racksnet® solution is able to manage any form of professional IT network, regardless of the type of devices and vendors included.

With the racksnet® software, you can now also use cost-effective white or brite box solutions in your IT infrastructure – without any loss of performance or security and quality.

With our solution we help you to be one step ahead in the process of digital transformation.

Founders Story

Our Motivation

Having worked in the network world for many years, we have experienced how inflexibly the existing vendors deal with customer requirements and what this means for you as a customer.

We want companies and organisations, regardless of their size, to be able to make important decisions for their growth as flexibly and independently of external constraints as possible. Our software helps you to achieve this independence for your IT network infrastructure.

As the first and only provider worldwide, racksnet® is able to administer and manage the different and vendor-locked network components of all market-leading vendors via one single graphical user interface. Our solution offers our customers a wide range of options for planning, administering and providing complex IT networks.

Milestones

Today, racksnet GmbH is a provider of cloud-based network management and automation software. Our products and solutions are designed for professional use. They stand for security, performance, ease to use and fast scalability – depending on our customer requirements.

Our racksnet® solutions are used wherever complex network architectures prevail. In data centers, banks and public authorities.Or where IT costs have to be sustainably reduced and existing resources have to be used more efficiently, whether in large companies or in the classic medium-sized businesses (SMB).
