Freedom of Choice in a New Dimension
The answer to the challenges of digital transformation lies in the “as-a-Service economy”. That began with the concept of cloud computing, which enabled users to set up their IT infrastructure independent of the possession of computing resources for the first time. Today, we are ready to offer almost any IT-related question as-a-Service. DARZ facilitates this as a digital evolution provider through its unique combination of infrastructure, technology, expertise and cooperation. The center of our Data Centric Universe is our own high-security data center in the heart of Darmstadt, Germany.
Modular IT Services
Our portfolio of Data Centric Services is divided into three parts. We offer partners and customers access to Colocation/Housing, Managed Services/Hosting, and Cloud Services. The special feature is that all services can be combined freely and scaled in performance, quality and scope. The result for the user is maximum individualized services that correspond exactly to the respective requirements at the respective time.
The first real hybrid cloud is an example. Based on NetApp Private Storage, DARZ achieved the world’s first real hybrid cloud architecture. Offers that have hitherto been referred to as a hybrid cloud often separate strictly between the storage levels within and outside a company. NetApp Private Storage-as-a-Service (NPSaaS) provides full data mobility between private cloud, public cloud and colocation without the need for complex data migration. For users, this means high security and full control of data in a private cloud combined with the flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness of a public cloud.
In terms of performance and availability, you are using the quality class of a dedicated enterprise storage system. By connecting directly to different hyperscalers like AWS, IBM/Bluemix, VMware, Microsoft Azure, ProfitBricks or CloudSigma, you can also choose individual cloud applications depending on your requirements. This keeps you flexible into the future so you can react quickly and cost-effectively to new business challenges.
