Managed Data Center with Dynamic Computing Services (DCS)

Dynamic Computing Services: The right amount of IT power you require

With Dynamic Computing Services, you always have access to the performance you need. You only pay for what you use, meaning that you can optimise your IT costs by adjusting processing power and storage requirements flexibly to your needs. Your IT infrastructure is managed redundantly in fail-safe, highly available data centres in Switzerland.

Data Center Services: the virtual data centre

The Dynamic Data Center is your high-performance, cost-efficient data centre in the Swisscom Cloud. You configure the processing power, RAM and storage space without the need for weeks of setup or integration planning.

If you need more or less RAM, you simply adjust the configuration in the management tool. The DCS portal and vCloud Director are so easy to use that there’s no need for our assistance. New users can simply register online and start using the live system within a few hours.

Dynamic Storage (S3): always sufficient storage

With Dynamic Storage, you can expand your local storage solution independently of location and georedundantly in the cloud. Your data is stored at a Swisscom data centre in Switzerland and is available 24/7.

Dynamic Storage is a flexibly scalable managed service that is particularly suited to large data volumes; for instance, as a backup, restore or data archiving solution for the secure external storage of important company data. This virtual storage option is also the ideal add-on for disaster recovery solutions.

Disaster Recovery: robust IT services

Service interruptions, data loss or malware attacks represent real risks for your IT services. With DCS, we offer different measures to effectively protect your IT infrastructure: redundant data centres, mirrored storage with backup function, highly available backup S3 storage or VMware Cloud Director Disaster Recovery – on premises in your data centre or directly on our virtual cloud platform.

When is it the right solution?

Large enterprises have to respond swiftly to market changes and customer requirements, and radically shorten the time to market of their products or services. With immediately available and easily scalable IT resources, you are ready for agile, future-proof projects with ongoing operations guaranteed.

To meet these demands, it is important that the IT infrastructure is kept up to date and flexible. This takes time that you don’t have and money you need for investments in other projects.

Nevertheless, you still have to ensure the availability of the infrastructure, the security of all critical and non-critical company data and business continuity. Achieving this with your own IT infrastructure is expensive because of ever increasing complexity and a lack of employee knowledge or skills in many IT departments.
