Public Cloud Services from DARZ

Providers of Public Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Public IaaS), or hyperscalers, in the Data Centric Universe are Microsoft Azure, IBM Softlayer/Bluemix, VMWare, AWS, ProfitBricks and CloudSigma. Each of these hyperscalers has a different set of features. We have broken this down to let you compare. They all ultimately offer flexibility, scalability and hourly invoicing. For this reason, DARZ maintains intensive partnerships with all these hyperscalers and continually shares know-how with them.

Public Cloud: The Hyperscaler Hub from DARZ

For our customers and partners, we have connected all relevant hyperscalers to our Hyperscaler Hub and added them to our hybrid cloud platform. Access to these services via DARZ offers you numerous advantages. You can get, for example, a standardized reporting and uniform invoice upon request. This means that you do not have to pay by credit card. Do you also need support when choosing the right provider or when implementing or operating in the public cloud?

DARZ offers you precisely that – tailormade. Through our modular service approach, you can get hyperscaler resources you need, and combine them exactly to the extent that you need it. Decide which hyperscaler you want to communicate with, or whether you entrust us with the management. If you want, DARZ can also act as your single point of contact for support. Together with our partners, we provide holistic support in selection, implementation and operation.
