Why do people talk about a "hybrid" cloud ?
The advantages of the cloud model no longer need to be proven. People call on cloud solutions and services for reasons of adaptability, cost and flexibility. But do you know where your most critical data are at all times? Are they properly secured? How many suppliers do you have? Meanwhile, what will happen if one of them suddenly changes their terms and conditions of use? What is the guaranteed service level?
At NRB, we have come to the conclusion that it is simpler and more effective to rely on a single partner for all your IT requirements, even the most specific ones. This is why we are offering you this Hybrid Cloud model, which enables you to combine the benefits of NRB’s private Cloud in terms of security, cost, and local presence, and to call on public cloud services without being required to go through different suppliers. In this context, we play the role of an integrator, and organise your IT environment in a completely transparent way.

Performance and Real Time Availability
Our aim is to offer an increasing performance level at competitive prices. Aside from a traditional infrastructure, we are investing in Engineered Systems (Oracle Exadata, and SAP HANA, etc.). and are setting up convergent infrastructure. An engineered system is an environment where the hardware and software have been designed together for a single purpose (purpose built) whereas a convergent infrastructure assembles all the layers of a solution (network, servers, middleware, and software, etc.) in a single environment. All these investments, together with our initiatives for automating procedures to the extent possible, are intended to improve the performance offered by aiming towards fast provisioning, and immediate availability, while optimising costs.
