These days, companies usually have a mix of private and public clouds, as well as on-premises infrastructures. Future Cloud Infrastructure is part of a hybrid cloud solution to provide customers with a larger variety of services. Companies select the infrastructure cloud that best suits their needs and then manage it centrally. The result: a secure private cloud with all the features of the public cloud in terms of speed, flexibility and agility and less cost.
Future Cloud Infrastructure is based on a strong partnership approach. Our main partners are:
We consistently use the principles of the public cloud for the private cloud. With the Future Cloud Infrastructure, we are saving up to 20 percent in costs – to the benefit of our customers.

No cloud provider offers the right solutions for every single requirement of an IT infrastructure. IT departments therefore rely on a mix of different cloud services for IT infrastructures (IaaS), development and operating platforms (PaaS) and applications (SaaS). They combine these services and supplement them with on-premises IT landscapes to create a hybrid IT architecture.
Managing all of these various solutions, service providers and platforms in parallel is no easy task. Especially since IT departments have to guarantee requirements for data protection, governance, transparency and comprehensive security and compliance. As a result, some companies choose to use the smallest possible number of providers and platforms. However, in doing so they are missing opportunities to reduce IT costs and at the same time provide IT solutions demanded by their business departments in a more agile and flexible manner.
To prepare for the future, companies need four building blocks: connectivity, cloud and IT infrastructure, security, and digitalization. With a Future Cloud Infrastructure, companies are set up for the future.
