Automate Everything

We steer clear of repetitive tasks that lead to unnecessary charges. Leveraging Automation and Configuration Management tools is our strategy for maximizing efficiency and effectiveness in every project.

No Vendor Lock-in

Our approach ensures you're never tied down. We intentionally craft your infrastructure for easy migration to another Linux consulting service if needed. Our aim is enduring partnerships built on satisfaction—happy customers stay by choice, not obligation.

Stay Up-to-Date

Our consultants are afforded ample free time to explore and experiment with new technologies. We commit to offering our customers only those technologies that we have comprehensively understood, evaluated for stability, and personally deemed high-quality.

Happy Employees

At the heart of creating outstanding products are engagement, professionalism, and a genuine passion for the work. Treating every team member fairly and ensuring a good work-life balance is our formula for ensuring lasting relationships with our customers at Blunix GmbH.

Honest Error Management

Errors are human, not machine. We embrace this reality by never hiding mistakes from our customers, choosing instead to address any issues directly and promptly. Our commitment to reliability is underscored by our use of a trusted backup solution.

Excellence Through Focus

We concentrate on what we excel at, steering clear of Windows, Groupware, or any areas outside our expertise. When a technology falls beyond our focus, we refer prospective customers to other companies that are experts in that area. This specialization ensures our service remains top-tier in the industry.

Stable Technologies Only

In production environments, there's no room for experimentation. We only utilize software that meets our standards for stability and reliability, ensuring peak performance and minimal downtime for your operations.

No First-Level Support

At Blunix GmbH, we only hire Linux consultants with extensive experience and expertise. Skip the first level support queue—whether your question is straightforward or intricate, SLA customers will be connected directly to their dedicated Linux Consultant in 99% of cases.

We're in this field because it excites us; the joy of creating, automating, and solving technical challenges is our true motivation. At Blunix, our priority lies in enhancing the customer experience and ensuring a fulfilling work environment for our team, rather than solely focusing on profit.
