When is it the right solution?

For your business, constant data availability and protection against data loss or theft are vital. Housing your own servers, however, will quickly push you to your limits as maintaining a highly secure server environment requires significant effort and expense.

Während die Server immer kleiner werden, steigen die Ansprüche an ihre Umgebung: Klimatisierung, Brand- und Einbruchschutz, die Regelung und Kontrolle des Zutritts oder die unterbrechungsfreie Stromversorgung sind Themen, mit denen sich nicht alle Unternehmen beschäftigen wollen. Damit die bauliche Infrastruktur ständig «state of the art» ist, sind oft erhebliche Investitionen nötig. Zudem bindet der Betrieb des eigenen Rechenzentrums personelle Ressourcen, die Sie lieber in produktiveren Gebieten einsetzen würden.

Why Swisscom?

  • Minimised risk: Swisscom is your experienced partner.
  • Personal support: our on-site specialists are there for you.
  • State-of-the-art technology: for air conditioning, fire protection, security, power supply
