Escala Infrastructure Powers Digital Transformation

The foundation for today’s data centers and cloud platforms

Benefit from efficient and trouble-free migration to a cloud infrastructure.

In every sector, traditional data center infrastructure models are struggling to deliver the agility and responsiveness demanded by a data-driven business.  New cloud infrastructures deliver both performance and cost-savings – but only if you make the right choices.

Your migration to cloud must be planned and executed under the pressure to radically reduce both capital and operational expenditure while delivering exceptional continuity and performance.

It must take place without compromising compliance or security obligations.  At the same time, it must be ready for the shift to open source approaches to both application development and delivery.

The Atos Escala range of cloud-ready servers makes the ideal engine for your new cloud infrastructure.

Escala answers the need for affordable, high-performance on-premises cloud.  It delivers a flexible, cost-effective and highly-automated path to a winning cloud infrastructure.

Designed to support databases and business-critical applications, Escala delivers best-in-class enterprise reliability, availability, and serviceability.

92% of business executives believe that digital technology will disrupt their business in the next 12 months.
