Application scenarios for Data Center Solutions

If you want your business to keep pace with innovation in the digital world and get the best from all clouds, Hybrid Cloud environments are essential. Move workloads to the Private Cloud or Public Cloud to increase agility and scalability.

Backup & archiving

The Public Cloud is a good disaster recovery location for an on-premises infrastructure. Backups are copied from the on-premise server to the cloud, and storage of non-system-critical data and workloads can be easily outsourced to the cost-optimised Public Cloud.

Disaster Recovery

The rapid recovery of business-critical applications is an essential part of a business continuity strategy. If your on-premise IT infrastructure fails, your IT applications will continue to operate seamlessly in the cloud. A hybrid cloud disaster recovery solution provides flexibility, greater stability and an improved user experience.


Cloud bursting is a useful response to a sudden increase in demand for IT resources: it involves instantly moving an application that is running in a private cloud or data centre to a public cloud. It offers the advantage of managing capacity peaks cost effectively through the temporary use of Public Cloud resources (pay as you use).

Companies that modernise their IT platforms ensure the continued functionality of all their applications, whether these are traditional business-critical applications or cloud native ones. SAP, Oracle and SQL environments all operate more efficiently when the IT infrastructure and data centre are up to date.


Containers are a virtualisation technique used to isolate individual applications from other processes. Unlike virtual machines (VMs), containers do not use a hypervisor to distribute the server’s physical resources to VMs below the operating system. Instead, virtualisation happens directly at operating system level. As a result, containers use existing resources much more efficiently than virtual machines – and enable a faster connection.

A hyperconverged infrastructure combines all the elements of a data centre in a single software defined system. Software and suitable servers replace expensive special hardware. The complexity of your data centre decreases significantly while scalability increases. You also benefit from lower operating costs, greater stability and better performance.
