The ability to store valuable business and customer data securely and to consult them at any time is an essential condition for
success in our digital economy. But, managing a data center yourself requires enormous investments, in trained personnel
as well as in time. Because, even though the storage infrastructure becomes less expensive each year, the cost of highly
skilled employees who manage your data effectively and make them accessible is rising more and more quickly. Furthermore,
the trends in your sector and your future needs are often difficult to predict. The result? You invest too quickly in too much
storage capacity. Or you have too few storage possibilities for an unexpected peak in demand.
