Everything is in the hands of founders

nine has been owned by its founders Thomas Hug and Philipp Koch since the company was established in 1999.

It is the success of our customers
that drives us

From the very start, nine has always strived to be on the cutting edge of technology. In 2004, nine was the first provider to bring dedicated servers to Switzerland. In 2013, nine became the first technology partner of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Switzerland and took on the management and operation of all websites and app APIs of the NZZ Media Group – entirely in the Amazon Cloud.

In what we believe

As 9ers, we know where we want to go and are ambitious in reaching our goals.



Our highest priority is the delivery of value to our customers, and we are enthusiastic about ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction. We always act proactively, because a 9er always finds a way to master a challenge. We are not just professionals: we are humans with a personality who love to laugh - also with customers.


We are passionate about what we do and we leave no stone unturned when trying to find the perfect solution for the task at hand. We are committed to our tasks until they are finished and to the stakeholders satisfaction. We do not complain or criticise, but rather invest our time in coming up with specific suggestions and/or alternative solutions if we think that something can be improved.



We are pioneers. We never stop looking for improvements and we are not afraid to try out new stuff that could bring nine, our colleagues or ourselves to the next level - even if we fail. We think outside the box and know no departmental boundaries. We are also geeks who want to get to the bottom of things, so we test new stuff and do not use it until we think it’s nine or 9er material.



We are not only proud of who we are and of what we know. We also have a profound respect for one another, for each other’s abilities and we provide instant feedback. We like to share our knowledge. We praise each other’s accomplishments and efforts, but also give everybody the chance to grow to their personal best by suggesting possibilities to improve in the future. A 9er is always open to suggestions for improvement.

Our infrastructure - State-of-the-art data centres

Three separate data centres, a multiple redundancy network and high-quality server components form the technological backbone of nine.

Learn more about our data centers


ISO 27001 Information Security

A comprehensive risk analysis of all areas of a company is essential to an integrated information security approach in compliance with ISO 27001:2013. In addition to the tangible aspects, companies must also define technical and organisational measures for ensuring the availability, integrity and consistency of data.

An audit performed by a certification authority involves reviewing whether the measures that are in place meet the risk management requirements, whether they are applied as defined and whether they are documented accordingly. All this was checked successfully by the certification authority SwissTS.

We would also like to emphasize that successful information security depends on the location of the data and therefore the physical features of the data centre. A secure data centre, however, is just one small aspect of physical information security and, by itself, is no guarantee of ironclad information security. In our view, it would therefore be careless to have only the data centre inspected by the certification authority, which is why we decided to certify the entire company. This will allow nine to ensure documented, seamless information security in line with ISO 27001:2013.

ISO 9001 quality management

nine is tested and certified in compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 standard for quality management.

The strong focus of nine.ch on outstanding, customer-oriented services as well as the operation of high-availability managed platforms requires an ongoing, long-term adaptation of internal processes and quality management practices. In order to effectively anchor this continuous improvement process within the company, nine has invested in its own Total Quality Management system. By attending the TQMi course in 2013, it was possible to efficiently set up the management system and integrate it into daily operations. The successful certification, also with the updated norm from 2015, demonstrates that the processes are well-established, continuously improved and that all requirements comply with the internationally recognised standard. 

Linux Professional Institute Certification (LPIC)

Thanks to its high number of LPIC-certified system engineers, nine is currently the only Linux Professional Institute (LPI) Gold Partner in Switzerland. This ensures that you, the customer, receive consistent quality and competent consulting in all Linux-related matters. 

The LPI certification attests to the sound technical competence in a wide range of technologies/products (selection):


  • Clustering
  • High availability
  • Load balancing
  • Virtualization solutions


  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Tomcat
