Arbeitsschutz-Express – Outsourcing AWS hosting


The company “Arbeitsschutz-Express GmbH” has been in business since 1983 and offers more than just safety shoes and orange high-visibility vests. After all, fashion trends have found their way into occupational safety and are just as important today as risk prevention and protection. Arbeitsschutz-Express provides its customers with workwear and equipment that protects and looks great at the same time. The product range  aims to cover the needs of both end users and B2B customers in the fields of craft, industry, gastronomy, healthcare, etc.

At the beginning of this year, the company selected Skaylink’s AWS managed cloud solution. We talked about the reasons for this change and the project with René Altmann (Senior PHP Developer).


Mr. Altmann, why did you choose Skaylink?
We used to host our own Shopware store in an AWS environment. However, we were reaching the limits of our cloud hosting expertise. We began looking for a suitable AWS hosting partner and quickly found one with Skaylink.

What specific requirements should be solved?
We needed complete management of our AWS account and a stage environment. We also needed to implement a fully centralized cache management and deployment process. To summarize: All hosting-related tasks should be outsourced with the aim of maintaining a stable and high-performance environment.

How did Skaylink solve your problem? What were the benefits?
Skaylink was able to support us with extensive experience from previous Shopware projects and also guide us through the correct settings.

Thank you very much, Mr. Altmann, for this special insight. We wish you continued success and look forward to working with you in the future!

“By outsourcing the hosting, we can now fully focus on the further development of our online store (Shopware Enterprise). We are happy to have such a reliable and competent partner at our side.”
