Cloud and managed services
You don't want to burden your data centre by having to provide individual services and applications. If you need a reliable partner to run your standard software and your individual developments and to include different cloud providers, then you've come to the right place. We will manage your services and run your applications in our data centres: from individual workloads through to taking care of a complete data centre in the Materna Cloud Data Centre.
Our solutions for cloud and managed services
Whether it is for a private, public or hybrid cloud, we will manage and optimise your services and run your applications in our data centres, or in your data centres or in the cloud. That can range from individual workloads to taking care of more complex services. You don’t need to worry about the details relating to networks, hardware, software, licences or service implementation - we carry out the go-live and workload migration and then take care of the complete management right through to service and application monitoring, billing and reporting.
Materna runs data centres at two locations with a high-performance infrastructure working at network operator standard. It goes without saying that we will manage the applications and solutions you entrust us with reliably.
We can provide you with service management and IT-outsourcing. In particular, this includes the design, hosting, management, monitoring and maintenance of your business-related services and applications as well as the integration of software and services. We deploy products and solutions from third party suppliers as well as commodity products (such as Office 365) from the usual cloud suppliers as well as Materna’s own applications. We run and manage your services either in one of our own data centres, or on the basis of services in the cloud with third party suppliers, or with the help of hyperscalers such as Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.
Our data centre experts integrate your solutions in your own IT or in your user department so that applications, even though they are run externally, feel like they are your own IT – they are just more flexible and cost-optimized and mean less work for you and your staff.
