In the digital future, those companies are successful that can make the best of their internal and external data, structured and unstructured. Because these digital values are the information that drives the company in its development. The basic prerequisite for a clean analysis is, above all, the ability to hold the data in such a way that it is available quickly and correctly. This question was never trivial for IT managers in the past, rarely sexy, but always eminently important. Now the issue of data storage and availability has become a necessary strategic issue. With the help of efficient data management that includes storage, processing, analysis and transport, the CIO is finally becoming a strategist in its organization. What changes, however, is the battlefield on which it operates. If in the past all questions of data storage were related to proprietary systems, the action space is shifting rapidly into the cloud. Just the right time to take a look at the technical systems that allow the right handling of the digital treasures.
A data management system in the cloud
A valuable approach in this context is, so to speak, to create an operating system for data storage in the cloud. NetApp has implemented this with Cloud ONTAP and moved the necessary features as a control center into the cloud. With this control panel, we at DARZ are able to manage both the data of a customer in the cloud – whether public or private – and in colocation. This makes Cloud ONTAP a bridge builder between the new, agile IT world and the traditional proprietary data dimension. This concept is a necessary prerequisite for the digital transformation step by step. Otherwise, the only alternative would be a complete migration of data, which is only possible with great time and resources. The hybrid cloud platform is also used here, which accesses completely a central dataset and only leads the data necessary for the processing to the computing instance.
Digital transformation for everyone.
At DARZ, we are anxious to bring our customers, who are often start-ups or the SMOs, into the topic of digital transformation. This means, above all, not to overwhelm them with all sorts of playing styles and dimensions, but to create individual packages. This ensures that we provide individual services that include strong performance at a fair price. The basis for this are current technologies such as Cloud ONTAP, which create scope for efficiency and innovation.
