Consulting Packages Data Center & Cloud

Data Center

Our consultants provide you with comprehensive advice on the implementation or modernisation of your data centre and cloud environment - either as part of standardised consulting packages or individual consulting services.

Data Center Performance Analysis

Make your data centre fit for the future: Our experts advise you on the design, configuration and installation of your infrastructure and optimally match the performance to support your business objectives.

HCI Consulting Workshop Phase 1: Comparison HCI versus 3-Tier Architecture

Controlware offers you a consulting service in which we systematically document the technical requirements for the new data centre infrastructure together with you in a workshop. In this way, the initial conditions of your corporate IT are recorded and framework parameters are considered that can influence a target architecture and the future design. As a result, you receive documentation of the collected data and requirements, which serve as input for the creation of a high-level design.

HCI Consulting Workshop Phase 2: HCI Technology Consulting

HCI is a reliable and economical approach for almost all use cases in IT. However, it is important to find the right HCI solution for the respective use case. We offer you a consulting service that lays the foundation for a technically and economically viable HCI solution in your company. During a workshop, we record your requirements for the HCI solution. The infrastructure of your company relevant for an integration of HCI systems is systematically recorded. In addition, the framework parameters that influence the future design of the new data centre infrastructure are recorded. In this way, a rough concept is created in dialogue between you and an HCI expert from Controlware, in which the use of HCI technology in your company is outlined.

HCI Consultation Workshop Phase 3: HCI Assessment

To bring the IT infrastructure up to date, it is important to understand how workloads in a heterogeneous environment behave and influence each other over time. Controlware experts measure the current IT infrastructure and assess it for suitability for an HCI solution. We identify the actual needs of your applications in order to adapt your new IT infrastructure to your requirements in a precise and thus cost-effective manner. Controlware supports you with the HCI assessment to overcome these challenges in a short time - and this with a holistic view of both your IT landscape and your workload data.

Veeam Backup Health Check

As part of the consulting service, we analyse your backup infrastructure and show you its optimisation potential and security risks.

Modern backup concepts

Many companies and organisations use Veeam Backup & Replication, CommVault, Dell Data Protection solutions or other backup software to protect virtualised workloads. The installation and administration of these tools in OnPrem environments has been known for years. As infrastructure environments continue to grow and are now very often hybrid through the use of cloud infrastructures, the requirements for today's data protection solutions are changing.

Microsoft Exchange Assessment

We advise you on the use of IaaS and Paas services from leading cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

Cloud Security Assessment

Most security incidents related to cloud environments result from human error The use of cloud services creates many opportunities for companies to gain speed and agility in the context of digitalisation.

At the same time, headlines about security incidents related to cloud environments are on the rise (e.g. data breaches through publicly accessible AWS S3
buckets). Is the cloud therefore insecure?

M365 Security Checkup

Checking 70 security-critical settings in your cloud environment.

The Microsoft Office365 Security Checkup from Controlware makes it possible to check security-relevant settings on the basis of best practice experience. To ensure that the latest security incidents can also be taken into account, the latest brand-new findings are constantly incorporated here - from worldwide experience. In addition to the identification of security risks, you receive concrete recommendations for action.

Security Active Directory Assessment

Almost all companies use authentication and authorisation based on Microsoft Active Directory (AD). Central business-critical applications and services use the information from the AD and enrich it with their own data. For this reason, the entire company is usually affected when disruptions occur in the directory service. The operators of an Active Directory infrastructure therefore bear a great responsibility.

Public Cloud Services

Benefit from the potential of market-leading hyperscalers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform - or opt for a solution hosted entirely in Germany with the Controlware Cloud.

Modern cloud technologies make your company more productive, flexible and efficient - but they also come with new challenges. Our experts help you to optimally exploit the potential of your cloud strategy without compromising on security or compliance. We support you in the planning, design, implementation and operation of public cloud solutions in the following areas:
