4/19/2023: Price increases for cloud services: ARTEC IT Solutions advises on sovereignty over one's own data

Maintain flexibility and independence, avoid lock-in effects

Karben, 20.04.2023 - In April, Microsoft significantly raised prices for various widely used cloud services. ARTEC IT Solutions, a specialist for data management, data security and live archiving, advises companies and IT service providers in this context to generally also take the emergence of possible permanent dependencies even more into account when using cloud solutions.

"From the customer's point of view, the challenge of a possible lock-in effect arises with many cloud services," says Jerry J. Artishdad, Managing Director of ARTEC IT Solutions GmbH. "Such a dependency relationship can quickly become so great that switching to another platform becomes almost impossible in practice, as the effort required for this would simply not be feasible. The same applies if, at a later date, the path back from the cloud to the company's own systems is desired. We therefore generally recommend that our customers and partners maintain their independence and flexibility as far as possible and retain sovereignty over their own data. One thing should be emphasized: this in no way excludes the use of common cloud services or even hybrid models."

ARTEC IT Solutions' solutions are designed to work optimally with cloud services such as Microsoft 365. In addition, however, the modular data management system EMA®, for example, offers a significant advantage: Comparable to a multi-secured "data safe", a completely separate copy of all company data is generated. This data protection is not only protected against access by unauthorized persons and cyber criminals through security concepts such as encryption, digital signatures and trusted computing technology, but also ensures sovereignty over one's own data at all times. This offers full flexibility, as the data can simply be moved with any future system or infrastructure change.

"Companies and organizations should always have an alternative Plan B in the drawer. And this applies in particular to the handling of one's own data, which today is often one of the most important resources of all," says Artishdad. "Those who retain their independence here will also be free to decide which platforms and solutions to use at any time in the future, depending on requirements and on the basis of economic considerations. These can be cloud services as well as hybrid platforms or the use of software on completely in-house systems."
