Welcome Giovanni!

Do you mean that you need a vector version of the logo that we see on the page you linked us to -- the open folder with caduceus?

Or do you mean you need a whole new logo designed and drawn in vector? If so, can you give us any requirements, such as the size, style, colors, must it contain certain items such as a folder, caduceus, a cloud, the letters "eHx", a stethoscope, etc.? (I know that you mean cloud storage, but just for example of what logo contains.)

Any deadline?

Ehm,.. vectorising this thing you call a logo won't be a problem, but really Giovanni... This thing is as ugly as hell. Would you mind making this a proper contest and let people here give it a go to come up with something decent? Someone took two picture, stuck 'm together and pasted some text on top.. et viola... you had a logo.

Sorry to say, but the whole website could help a tad of redesigning. The colors are good, but the typography is unbearable and the layout is the wrong type of less is more. As I am a professional I tend not to do these things for free, but you may have a compelling product.

However, as you are creating something for medical world, which is notorious old fashioned in their OS environment I wonder if this would be the thing to build in SVG. Because I am personally not that interested just making nice pictures and a HTML interface as my hobby project. I would do it only as an SVG project and you could render the bitmaps yourself and plug them into some Div's if that's what you want.
