The Hybrid Cloud from DARZ

Hybrid Cloud Solution from DARZ

For years, hybrid and cloud infrastructures have been discussed in the media and in specialist forums. But: is the hybrid cloud concept already a reality? According to NetApp Private Storage, DARZ created the world’s first real hybrid cloud architecture. Offers that were previously referred to as a hybrid cloud often severely separate the storage levels within and outside a company. NetApp Private Storage-as-a-Service (NPSaaS), on the other hand, provides complete data mobility between the areas of private cloud, public cloud and colocation – without complex data migration. For you, that means distinct security and full control of your 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 offering the hybrid cloud platform, DARZ is the pioneer for the concept of Multi Cloud Sourcing.

Hybrid Cloud with Highest Scalability

By directly connecting the hybrid cloud to different hyperscalers like AWS, Softlayer and VMware, you can also choose the appropriate cloud service according to your requirements. This means you will remain flexible enough in the future to react to new business challenges quickly and cost-effectively. If necessary, you can easily integrate the hybrid cloud solution into existing colocation or private and shared cloud solutions.

Hybrid Cloud Solution: Available Worldwide

Through cooperation with numerous technology partners from the hardware and data center environment, it is easily possible to make the hybrid cloud available worldwide. An overview of locations can be found in our graphic overview. In collaboration with hyperscalers, DARZ acts as a single point of contact and an invoicing party ensuring uniform reporting.

Easy Migration and High Data Protection in the Hybrid Cloud

Migration to a dedicated or shared NetApp storage system is possible at any time. Due to the location of DARZ’s high-security data center in Darmstadt, your data stored there is subject to German data protection guidelines. The secure, fully redundant connection also ensures maximum security on a permanently monitored, encrypted, dedicated fiber optic infrastructure that bypasses the Internet.


1. Self-Managed Cloud Service

You will receive a separate rack for your storage system in the DARZ data center. In addition, connection to all desired cloud providers is guaranteed. You take care for the operation and management of all resources and storage systems yourself.

2. Cloud Managed Services

You receive a dedicated storage system or a completely separate instance (SVM) on a shared storage system. DARZ takes over the operation of the system as well as the connection to all hyperscalers available at the Frankfurt location. You take care of the configuration and administration of your instance as well as the purchase of resources from hyperscalers.

3. Full Service Cloud

DARZ offers the complete service from a single source and, on request, also takes care of the resources required by hyperscalers. This includes the third-party billing process, so that DARZ is your only contract and contact person, and personally supports you in all aspects of the hybrid cloud solution.
