Data Centre Automation

As a full-service digital transformation provider, inovex offers all the knowledge and services required for the flexible, cost-optimised operation of digital services in data centres.

Due to the complexity of the topics which must be addressed in a modern data centre, we involve our systems engineers at early stages, including the consulting phase, the requirements analysis phase of the planning stage, and the IT architecture design stage.

Involving engineers in every aspect of a project enables us to build and operate scalable IT landscapes. In doing so, we focus on innovative technologies with a clear emphasis on open source. Our agile methods make us the ideal partner for demanding time-to-market situations.
