When you build your cloud or CDN with OnApp, you get remote installation and configuration, advice on hardware and integrations, 24x7 support included as standard… but when you need to take your cloud to the next level, or get your engineers up to speed, our Professional Services team can give you the edge.

We work with you from the initial cloud design and deployment phase, through launch and into production. We offer ongoing support through cloud health checks and performance optimizations, provide certification and training for OnApp technologies, and assist with upgrades and migrations.

OnApp Professional Services: integration, training, migration, certification & more


OnApp includes a free basic installation as standard, performed remotely by our cloud architecture team. We also offer a range of Kickstart services to help with your deployment and post-install configuration. Kickstart services ensure your installation is performing perfectly, and speed your time-to-market.

Healthcheck, upgrade & migration

OnApp includes remote installation and configuration as standard, and you can upgrade your own cloud for free – but we also offer a range of install and upgrade services to make your deployment successful. We can help with migrating workloads into OnApp, too.


A healthcheck gives you comprehensive review of your entire OnApp setup, including software and hardware. We’ll identify any potential issues with your environment and recommend improvements to ensure your deployment is fully optimized, and running as smoothly as possible.


  • Health check is based on scripts and tests run remotely by our specialists
  • You get a detailed report of the results against each check we make
  • We’ll review the results with you to discuss any changes we recommend

Monthly services package

Subscribe to our monthly services package to get discounts on scheduled upgrades and health checks. Have your major upgrades scheduled and performed by our professional services team, and regular health checks undertaken – with reports delivered straight to your inbox.


  • Health check is based on scripts and tests run remotely by our specialists
  • You get a detailed report of the results against each check we make
  • We’ll review the results with you to discuss any changes we recommend

Scheduled upgrades

Free upgrades are included with the full version of OnApp, but we can’t always guarantee exactly when your upgrade will take place. With our Scheduled Upgrade service, however, we’ll upgrade your OnApp install at the time you specify.

  • Fully managed by OnApp specialists, at a time/date that suits your business
  • Remote upgrade is included as standard, with on-site options available
  • We’ll validate and sign-off your upgrade

It often makes sense to combine a Scheduled Upgrade with a post-upgrade Health Check – get in touch for more details.

Control Panel migration

Need to move your OnApp control panel to new hardware? We can help. We’ll install a new control panel for you, and migrate all services from your old CP to the new one.
