About Blunix GmbH & Blunix Stack

Debian Linux Hosting

Realiable. Personal. Customizable. Automated.

Blunix GmbH maintains and develops Debian Linux Configuration Management software with Ansible.
We offer a complete and customizable hosting solution with 24/7 response times.

Blunix GmbH

Blunix GmbH is a German company comprised of a highly motivated group of Linux enthusiasts. Our main interest is to automate everything, so that both our customers and we have to invest less time. Our main objective is to create stable and reliable software. We are interested in year-long, fruitful cooperations with our customers.

Blunix Stack

Blunix Stack is a collection of Open Source configuration management code based on Ansible. It is the result of over ten years of experience in Debian Linux hosting. Its design goal is to automate all parts of server management into code. It is intended to be used by your developers to complete every day tasks.


"Everything that can be automated should be automated."

Blunix Stack

List of Features

Blunix Stack is a designed to manage every aspect of your servers:
from their initial creation and installation to every aspect of management over their entire lifespan.

Code your cloud instances

Blunix Stack uses terraform to create and modify servers with cloud providers. Keep your entire server landscape as code in a git repository.

Provision new servers

After initial creation, Blunix Stack sets the servers hostname, encrypts the root disk, applies cloud provider specific tweaks and install a list of basic apt packages.

Install baseline services

All servers are configured with basic services: a firewall, a secured SSH server and a server-to-server VPN that encrypts all communication between them.

Utility services

Blunix Stack comes with pre-configured solutions for monitoring, backups, central logfiles, VPN for employees and git hosting.

Custom staging servers

Blunix Stack offers easy creation and management of virtual hosts on your staging servers as well as deployment solutions for daily development tasks.

High load production hosting

Blunix Stack offers completely customized hosting solutions for your PHP, Python, Ruby or Golang applications, from a single server to high availability clusters.

Hosting for your internal tools

Blunix Stack enables you to host all internal tools your company needs, like mediawiki, piwik, wordpress and any other tool as well as your in-house written solutions.

Hosting for your own customers

Blunix Stack is designed for web development companies requiring easy and cost effective solutions to host applications for their own customers.

Designed for your developers

Give your developers the infrastructure they need faster, but letting them apply automated processes themselves

Custom deployment solutions

Blunix Stack offers completely customizable deployment solutions, enabling your developers to easily manage application updates themselves.

Change management and history

Your entire infrastructure is managed as code inside a single git repository. Every change is reviewed by both Blunix GmbH and one of your developers.

Easy to use

Blunix Stack is designed to be used for daily tasks by your developers. It features a WebUI as well as a command line interface and comes with extensive documentation.


"If you work with the people you like, using the technologies that fascinate you, then work feels as good as playing a video game."

Our work philosophy

Professional. Reliable. Based on partnership.


Blunix GmbH exclusively employes Linux consultants with many years and high levels of experience. Waste no time talking to the first level support - regardless of your question being easy or complex.


Every customer is assigned a personal Linux consultant that designs, oversees and maintains your infrastructure over the entire lifetime of your contract with us. You talk to the same person 99% of the time.


We realize how much effort it took you to build your company. Managing infrastructure worth millions of Euros is our day-to-day business. We manage your companys assets with as much enthusiasm as yourself.

In partnership

Blunix GmbH is exclusively interested in long term cooperation. We want both your and our company to profit from a relationship that benefits us both. We enjoy to watch our customers companies grow over time.

Not for the money

Blunix GmbH was not founded to make us rich (it happened by itself). We work in this field because we truly love Linux and we could not think of a more interesting and fun profession. We just enjoy automating things.

Honest error management

Computers do not make mistakes, humans do. We do not hide our own flaws at your expense. We have caused (few) unintended outages in the past and will continue to do so - and we will honestly tell you about them right away.

Unjail the client

Blunix Stack does not keep you constrained. All our software is open source so that you could run it yourself. You own your infrastructure, we do not. All of your servers are hosted with your cloud provider accounts.

Only what we do best

We do not sell Windows, Groupware or other closed source software – if we do not specialize in a technology, we will advise our clients to look somewhere else. Our solutions are among the best on the market.

Treat your employees well

Engagement, professionalism and enjoyment of work are key aspects of building awesome products. Treating all employees fairly is what guarantees our customers long term work relations with their assigned consultants.


"A picture says more than a thousand words. Here are 60 pictures per second with audio."

Blunix Stack has a WebUI and a CLI

The Web User Interface is build for less technically experienced employees. It enables them to perform common daily tasks themselves.

The Command Line Interface features the full functionality of Blunix Stack. It is designed for your technically skilled employees wishing to perform more complex changes to your servers by themselves.

The Documentation Website gives your developers the ability to perform everyday tasks by themselves. This saves you the time of communicating with us and speeds up the deployment of new servers, features and recurring tasks.

Fair. Projectable. Reliable. Negotiable.

Avoid surprises

Changes in Blunix Stack pricing are announced 12 month in advance.

Our pricing calculation consists of three components:

24/7/365 Response Time

The maximum amount of time to address a problem after you or the monitoring system have issued a critical alert. The response time applies for all your critical services, regardless of how many servers your infrastructure contains.
Most of the time we can respond (almost) immediately.

One hour: 700 € per month
Three hours: 500 € per month
Six hours: 300 € per month
Next business day: Free of charge

Number of Debian Installations

For every running installation of Debian Linux (physical servers, virtual machines, not docker) we invoice 50 € or 30 minutes of maintenance per month. If common maintenance tasks exceed 30 minutes and stay below 60 minutes, you still only pay 50 €.

Large and non-common maintenance tasks, like upgrading to the next Debian Linux distribution release, are not included in this calculation and are invoiced extra with our common fee of 100 € per hour.

Uptime guarantee

For services that require a guaranteed percentage of uptime per month, we multiply the cost for the number of highly available Debian Linux installations as follows:

99,99% (< 5 minutes per month): ×7
99,95% (<16 minutes per month): ×4.5
99,90% (<44 minutes per month): ×2

All services which require guaranteed uptime need to be setup in way that makes high availability possible - for each service there needs to be a primary server and two or more failover servers.

All prices are negotiable (in case you have a large number of servers). If you have multiple servers fulfilling the same task and the mainenance tasks are similar for their services, we commonly group and discount them.

Additional tasks which are not recurring maintenance, like adding new servers or adding new vhosts to a servers are invoiced on a per-hour basis of 100 € per hour. However using Blunix Stack, with a bit of training your developers will be able to do most of those tasks themselves. We try to write code and automate tasks that you would otherwise have to pay us for.

A word of honesty about uptime guarantees: We obviously take care to setup all parts of your infrastructure in a way that promises as little downtime as possible. Sometimes however, your customers may want you to guarantee uptime in your contracts. There is no absolutely bulletproof way to guarantee uptime in hosting.
We can not tell you in advance which problems will arise in the future or how much time it will take to fix them. All we can take care of is to start addressing the problem within a certain time frame (response times).
Hence, most of the money you pay for a high availbility guarantee goes right to our insurance company. In all honesty, we think uptime guarantees are a bit of a scam business in IT. We prefer to be honest about that with you upfront.
If you have the choice, do not invest your money into HA guarantees. There is no reliable guarantee for uptime. If you need it for contracts, we are ready to offer that for you.
All services for which uptime guarantees are required have to be setup in high availability configurations (primary, first failover, second failover server). Special measures, like automated failovers, additional monitoring, a desaster recovery plan and others are taken to decrease the likelyhood of downtime.
These measures are of course also available without the guarantee for uptime.
