Big data, mobile traffic, the Internet of Things (IoT), streaming services and other future-driven technologies all generate enormous amounts of data. Worldwide data volumes are increasing by 40% every year and it is estimated that they will have grown by a factor of five by 2020. Companies are asking themselves how they will handle this flood of data—and how to manage and process it. A new type of infrastructure is needed, one that is agile and flexible, enabling it to adapt to new requirements.
This is where cloud computing comes in. Having recognised the new reality, numerous companies have already transitioned into the cloud. Of course, security is a top priority. Companies are hesitant to let sensitive business data leave their own data centres—especially if external data centres are overseas.
Many cloud providers appreciate these concerns and offer storage solutions throughout Europe. Bechtle’s data centre in Frankfurt meets stringent security and availability standards.
Companies can save considerably on investment costs by moving their data centre into the cloud and simply renting additional server and storage capacity as needed. Expand your infrastructure at the touch of a button and respond more quickly and flexibly to changing business requirements.

Is cloud computing right for you?
Getting started is simple—especially with expert advice. A thorough assessment will help you determine what your company really needs. Maybe a hybrid cloud environment is the best solution. Or perhaps you don’t need a large cloud and just want to use Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). A comprehensive needs assessment, accompanied by specific goals, will quickly make it clear what cloud migration can do for your business.
Which cloud is best?
As a multi-cloud provider, we’re always being asked, “Which cloud is the best? Which cloud will deliver everything my business needs?” The answer lies in finding the right combination of provisioning options and services. That’s why we offer a wide range of partner cloud solutions as well as our own cloud services. Which cloud will you choose?
Our experts are happy to support you all the way from finding the best cloud for your business to implementing your individual solution. Browse our cloud portal for a wide range of public and business cloud services and products.
Which cloud you chose, depends on what you need it for. Certain services are best sourced from the public cloud. Other scenarios are better served by a private cloud—many businesses, after all, are hesitant to store key customer data or research outside their own company. Tighter EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) must also be considered, as violating them can be costly.
