DTS Modular Concept
As a cloud veteran "Made in Germany", we have been developing our expertise in the cloud for over 10 years now, so from the very beginning. We do not provide simple island solutions from the cloud. For us, integrality has top priority. For this reason, we combine customer-specific solutions, platforms or services as desired and as required with our hybrid DTS modular concept. No matter in which combination, the modules complement each other fully, fulfil the highest safety requirements and communicate with each other.

The range of services includes over 100 elements, such as cloud storage, virtualization "as a service", IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, dedicated exchange, file sharing, mail archiving, email security, endpoint protection, SIEM, firewall services, SOC services, vulnerability management and patch and client management. This allows us, for instance, to expand Exchange Servers with mail archives from the data center and secure them with email security. We also extend the protection using additional Advanced Endpoint Protection and detect possible anomalies in the SOC or alert in the case of an emergency. We can also develop bespoke backup concepts and build them in hybrid form, on-premises and from cloud elements. We also have extended resources from our data centers for disaster recovery or storage available as well as solutions for the latest cloud security.

At DTS, only the customer decides which services either he or we should support, regardless of whether the solutions are provided on-premises, as a managed service or as a cloud service. We provide you with the latest technologies from the cloud and remain at your side during the entire project. In addition, our specially developed monitoring solutions facilitates the optimal control and support for all your systems. With our unique SOC and Helpdesk service, we also guarantee professional monitoring and support by our technical experts, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our DTS SOC is a specially operated security control center for protecting entire IT infrastructures and data from all cyber threats, and for hazard detection and reaction, around the clock.

DTS Managed Multicloud
“Multicloud“. Multicloud is indispensable in digital transformation. Numerous cloud providers and services along with new tools, apps and functions are becoming available every day. As a specialized managed cloud service provider, we develop a bespoke cloud strategy for you. Many years of technical expertise and integral cloud concepts from just one single source - our buzzword for this is "DTS Managed Multicloud“.

With DTS Managed Multicloud, we mean planning, analysis, strategy and concept development, migration and implementation, operation and management, continuous enhancement and a cross-cloud IT security concept. Management is provided in the form of a managed cloud or with modular, hybrid cloud components. In addition, everything is administered over our "Made in Germany" cloud management platform, where all the resources in the DTS cloud, global public and private cloud services and on-site solutions merge centrally. Cross-cloud monitoring, Helpdesk and SOC services, security solutions for every environment, governance and compliance conformity, workload portability and much more round off the integral nature of our multi-cloud strategy.

We plan, operate and continuously enhance your customer-specific multi-cloud concept as your central point of contact. Making the most of the potential, meeting all the requirements and managing all multi cloud components in a "Made in Germany" management system - that is the DTS Managed Multi Cloud.
