Corporate data centers as well as IT departments that care about complex IT infrastructures and their security are increasingly common or at least a stated goal in many places. However, the costs for the construction as well as the effort for administration and further development are very high, so that not all companies want to set up and operate their own data centers or own server rooms in addition to taking care of their own IT security concepts.
Outsourcing the applications to external data centers seems to be a major hurdle for many organizations. The main reason for this is the loss of control. Many enterprises worry about the corporate data, which is no longer located on the business premises, but hosted on cloud computing systems and provided in unidentified locations.
The task of cloud computing and multicloud concepts is to disengage IT infrastructures from local computers by making them available via a computer network. A distinction is made here between software-centered (SaaS), infrastructure-based (IaaS) and platform-related (PaaS) services.
GFOS knownCloud provides you with a platform located in data centers in Germany. These meet the highest security standards and data protection requirements. The data center is connected to a glass fiber network and has an availability of >99.6%. A duplicated and separately supplied optic fiber cable network as well as permanent monitoring ensure maximum availability. Secured access is guaranteed through the use of high-available firewalls, reverse proxies and application firewalls - personal data is only transferred via encrypted connections.
