Your data center is an important basis for your business development

Turn your data center into a powerful tool that will enable you to realize long-term strategic projects. Invest time in your core business instead of in the daily operation of a data center - UMB creating time!

We offer vendor-independent data center options and will empower you with a wide range of vendor-certified experts. We are Leading Edge with 2,000 certifications and a high partner status with all major hardware and software partners. In a discussion with you, we will clarify your individual needs, analyze your current situation, outline a smart solution and build a prototype if desired. In the end, you will receive a cleanly planned and documented platform that will meet your business requirements for years to come.


Compute, network & storage: The central power plant for your business

A data center is about processing, transmitting and managing information. This may sound simple, but it only unfolds its full potential when the latest technologies work well together. Our unique compute, networking and storage portfolio guarantees just that.

With stateless compute architectures, blade and server technologies, as well as GPU acceleration, our systems can handle even the most compute-intensive workloads. We are your partner for virtual servers, virtual desktops, artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, tier 1 - 3 applications and also container platforms.

Our solutions ensure low latency and high data throughput. For data storage, structured as well as unstructured, we rely on these principal methods:

  • Block (SAN)
  • File (NAS)
  • Object (S3)

With scale-up, scale-out or ultra-low latency architectures - such as NVMe over Fabric - we build a high-performance storage backend for your data center.


Converged & hyperconverged stand for flexibility and high efficiency

Converged & hyperconverged make your data center more flexible than ever before. Whether you are interested in a converged infrastructure solution or looking for a flexible hyperconverged alternative: We can help you select, design and deploy the right solution in your own environment.

Backup and Restore: More important and demanding than ever before!

Data backup is and remains an ongoing topic. The rapid recovery of data in the event of a loss or an attack can become vital for your company. Especially in connection with ransomware, you need to be able to fall back on this source without the backup data already being infected by malware. This places completely new demands on backup concepts.

Archiving is a form of backup, but it has a long-term character. It is often about meeting legal retention requirements. This obviously places special demands on the form of storage. In addition, data must not be changed, which in turn requires special software and, on the hardware side, speaks in favor of archiving on tape, for example. UMB's specialists can also support you with this issue.

Easy archiving with archive manager 

Using file and e-mail archiving, data with retention requirements is archived easily and efficiently with a modern solution. Archive manager provides your company with an efficient software solution for this purpose. At the same time, original documents can be restored with just a few clicks.

 With Metalogix archive manager for Exchange, e-mails are automatically archived efficiently, long-term, and legally secure. This enables highly flexible and effective Exchange archiving as well as management from one location. Storage space in the mail system will be freed up, reducing its downtime. The productivity of end users can be increased and the operational processes of the company optimized.

System monitoring

Our system monitoring offers maximum early detection of disruptions and performance drops in your systems. This allows proactive action to be taken against detected problems to prevent your business services from being affected and to keep your day-to-day business running. Monitoring the IT infrastructure ensures that all business-critical components in your network are available.
