Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Container platforms and microservices are all developments that enable the automation of business processes, the scaling of companies and the entire new business models as well. At the same time, companies are facing the challenge to design their IT infrastructure in such a way that IT processes are conducted smoothly and with high availability.
In the area of digitalization, breakdowns are not only expensive, but they also become more and more business critical. Thereby, a modern, highly available and secure Data Center is of vital importance. This center represents the basis for the transformation in the direction of Cloud Native in the company. Standardization, automation, and flexibility are considered a prerequisite for a cost-efficient operation and as the ideal combination of on-premises and Cloud infrastructures.
