Cloud computing offers maximum flexibility and improved performance for your entire enterprise IT infrastructure. How does it work? As an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) provider for corporate customers, with our Enterprise Cloud, we offer you a system that lets you operate your own virtual data centre and make the most of your instances by flexibly adjusting your resources. This is not the case with many standalone, physical solutions with dedicated hardware. Trained specialists maintain the physical servers to prevent outages.
Cloud computing is individually and vertically scalable
Available at the highest service level and professionally supported by system administrators
Costs are surprisingly low and minimises the need for investment
Is subject to strict German data privacy rules, and
Is usually greener than conventional data centres thanks to the deployment of state-of-the-art technology.
Many organisations do not need the same computing power all year round. Companies that use conventional server solutions are forced to invest in expensive hardware they rarely need in order to be able to cope with load peaks. Alternatively, they can do without these costly purchases but in doing so run the risk of outages; this, however, is a risk most companies are not willing to take. Cloud computing can put an end to this dilemma.
Enterprise Cloud users in the B2B sector benefit from the system’s flexibility: Cores, RAM, and storage are configured to perfectly suit your company’s requirements. Live vertical scaling (LVS) even allows users to scale individual servers and their components during live operation. Administrators can therefore intervene immediately in case of load peaks, without rebooting the server.
You have state-of-the-art technology at your fingertips in every configuration, for instance InfiniBand with 2 x 40 Gbit/s, HDD/SSD block storage, and AMD processors or Intel cores with hyper-threading.
Using the Enterprise Cloud means that your data is not stored in just one location (dual redundancy), so cloud computing provides an additional layer of security that an in-house, local server simply cannot deliver. This ensures that your data remains safe and permanently available, even in the event of a fire or sudden power failure.
What’s more, our servers are hosted in Germany and are therefore subject to the strict data privacy rules here. Your data is safe with us!
The Enterprise Cloud is the perfect solution if you require large capacities only in exceptional cases and can otherwise manage with less computing power— because you only pay for services that you actually use.
There is also no need to invest in expensive physical computers and accessories. Conventional, on-site data centres purchase new hardware at certain intervals: they acquire hardware to prepare for future developments, at the cost of liquidity—an unnecessary practice with the IaaS cloud.
Cloud computing is kinder to the environment than maintaining a local data centre on-premises. Why? Cloud computing is hosted in data centres by service providers who are specialised in keeping their facilities fully up-to-date and highly secure at all times. Equipped with precisely the right energy-efficient resources, these providers have a better carbon footprint than most conventional data centres. They even use energy-efficient cooling technologies, including natural resources (for instance free cooling or water cooling sets). Therefore, cloud computing in the B2B segment is easy on the budget and, at the same time, kind to the environment.
