DARZ has entered into a partnership with CloudSigma. The full IT service provider with its own high security data center and redundant fiber-optic ring to data centers in Frankfurt is thus enhancing its range of services by another cloud provider who allows customer to fully flexibly design their IT environments without limitations. Customers have now access to the full range of services from colocation and hybrid solutions up to public cloud solutions without latency times – in a transparent, scalable, and highly available manner.
CloudSigma was established in Switzerland in 2009 and with a staff of around 50 operates seven cloud locations in Switzerland, the USA, Asia, and Australia. Through the partnership with DARZ, the hyperscaler is expanding its customer base in Germany as the high security data center of DARZ allows it to also comply with the strict German data protection regulations.
“Together with DARZ we are expanding into one of the world’s most important markets,” said Robert Jenkins, CEO and co-founder of CloudSigma. “We are familiar with and understand the high data protection and data security requirements in Germany. This is why we are particularly pleased to have found in DARZ a partner who is a full IT service provider with its own high security data center. It is located in the former vault building of the central bank of the state of Hesse, complies with all required guidelines, and ensures service around the clock. At the same time, we can also implement mirrored data center scenarios at the highest possible security levels in Germany.”
Together, DARZ and Sigma offer a large number of service and integration solutions. With its standard service package, CloudSigma provides its customers with identical web apps and APIs in different countries to allow users to conveniently create and manage their cloud environment in one of the existing locations.This gives customers the full range of dedicated infrastructure solutions from colocation, housing or hosting, via on-premise cloud, secure hybrid cloud and dedicated public cloud capacities, up to public cloud solutions. What is more, the high security data center of DARZ offers direct access to more than 500 carriers as well as links to all Internet hubs and cloud platforms via dedicated fiberglass connections. This prevents vendor or data lock-in, allowing customers to switch to other offers at any time.
“We are proud to have gained CloudSigma as a customer of our data center and as a partner for our hybrid cloud solution and that our hybrid cloud offer is now enhanced by an additional hyperscaler,” said Lars Göbel, Sales and IT Services Manager of DARZ. “In addition to partnerships with other large hyperscalers we now have the opportunity of complementing our hybrid cloud offer and increasingly turning Germany into a hybrid cloud platform.”
