Time and again, Vitra creates new furnishing icons in collaboration with its designers. The company stands for excellence in furniture manufacturing. Vitra also focuses on operational excellence in IT - using technology transformation. UMB will now operate the entire data center platform by providing IT as a service from the highly available and geo-redundant UMB private cloud.

"Vitra is a Swiss family enterprise developing furniture for the home and office sector. It has its own campus in Weil am Rhein, to which leading international architects have contributed."  This unassuming description can be found on Vitra's website, a company that has been realizing groundbreaking design ideas in furniture and furnishings since 1950.
