Bechtle knows these challenges and offers customised 360° solutions for enterprises. All 360° Cloud Services run in our Swiss data centres which meet highest international security standards (TIER IV) to best protect your data from downtime and cyber-attacks.
The term "cloud" can cause many companies to hesitate as data security is a top priority. Can the cloud really be secure?
As a multi-cloud service provider, Bechtle is in a position to offer its customers a wide range of multi-cloud strategies—all from a single source—that can be tailored to the needs and security requirements of each customer.
The current trend is towards the hybrid cloud in which the customer’s on premise environment is extended by a cloud from a hyperscaler such as Amazon, for example. This means that business-critical workloads can be moved from one cloud to another as required and companies can book the resources they need "on demand"—especially useful during peak periods. This means that IT can be flexibly scaled, reducing investment costs (CAPEX) and giving much more room for manoeuvre.
The amount of data that will need processing in the future is already far more than current data centre capacities can handle. Big Data, IoT, artificial intelligence and Industry 4.0 are the challenges that companies need to overcome by upgrading their data centres. This means more space, more security, more infrastructure and more IT admin are needed—all things that many companies are struggling with.
And that’s not the only issue. If the company’s IT is not able to provision innovations and services quickly enough, individual departments will tend to use their own IT solutions. This Shadow IT cannot be accessed by IT admins and represents a major security risk.
The days of oversized data centres are numbered. Modern corporate IT needs to be simple, flexible, and scalable. The solution is in the cloud. Companies can sink investment costs while also being able to react more quickly to innovations, new services and business-relevant events.
Many cloud solutions are capable of consolidating a company’s on premise environment with a private or public cloud into a large hybrid cloud solution. Even though the IT uses two environments, these are displayed as a single unit, reducing admin and simplifying processes.
