A company’s capital includes its data and information. A secure and reliable storage solution is thus all the more important. Installed on-premises, hardware can be damaged or even destroyed. In comparison, data stored in the cloud is more secure, as it can be kept redundantly. The storage space itself is fairly inexpensive, but your company should make sure that it only pays for the resources it actually uses. A wide range of cloud storage solutions are offered for various purposes. And let’s not forget that cloud storage enables optimized disaster recovery strategies and therefore helps to ensure compliance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR 'General Data Protection Regulation').

Protecting company data from loss is extremely important. Thanks to the dual redundancy of its cloud storage solutions, IONOS can provide this protection: instead of storing your files in only one location, we also mirror the full backup in a second availability zone. This keeps your data safe, even if a data center is damaged by flooding, fire, or natural disasters. What’s more, the strict data protection laws in Germany naturally also apply to our German data centers — and therefore to your cloud storage as well.
Your IT management can be transformed completely by renting a cloud storage solution: instead of investing vast amounts in hardware, you can gradually migrate storage, computing, and networks to the cloud — saving time and allowing you to benefit from added liquidity and attractive cost savings. Security is your capital and our guarantee: benefit from IONOS’s long-standing experience in data security and privacy.
