Grid and cloud computing
The networking of IT systems, both within a company and across companies, is becoming increasingly complex. This places growing importance on infrastructure, and software for the management of distributed IT infrastructures.
We help to design and build IT architectures that permit companies and institutions to implement a needs-based and cost-accountable utilization of their distributed IT resources. In doing so, we not only aim to optimize the management of computing power and storage space, but also seek solutions which support data management and access to applications on shared systems.
Future technologies such as grid and cloud computing offer wide-ranging opportunities for internal company access across locations and organizational structures (enterprise grids), for cooperative use between companies (partner grids) or for the needs-based use of external resources made available by professional IT service providers (cloud computing).
We are working continuously on the further development of these technologies as part of our research activities. We design compatible company and business models as well as security solutions, jointly with industrial partners. Building on our know-how and experience in these technologies, we offer companies a comprehensive portfolio of consulting services dedicated to IT architecture.
