Minimize maintenance

Using old product versions results in interruptions to productive IT operations, for example during data backup or migration, when updating or upgrading software and when carrying out hardware maintenance.
However, if state-of-the art hardware and software is used such maintenance activities would not result in any interruption times or at least it would greatly reduce the number of breaks.

All the products listed below help to greatly reduce the need for so-called planned interruptions. They play an important role ensuring that the IT is always available when needed and without any limitations
