Gütersloh – As the market leader for sovereign IT solutions, Arvato Systems presents the "Sovereign Cloud Simulation", a specially developed cloud environment in the Microsoft Azure Public Cloud. This innovative solution offers an ideal platform for the realisation and simulation of sovereign cloud scenarios in the public sector.


A Sovereign Cloud is a purpose-built cloud computing environment that meets stringent legal and regulatory requirements and places particular emphasis on the security of sensitive data. Strengthening IT sovereignty in the public sector is a challenging task that requires a comprehensive understanding of the relevant goals and regulations as well as the precise application of technology. Arvato Systems is a leader in this field, offering expert advice and tailored solutions to ensure IT sovereignty.


"Sovereign Cloud Simulation" enables public sector authorities, companies and IT service providers to quickly and efficiently perform Proof of Concepts (PoC), map and verify cloud architectures and test cloud workloads and scenarios. This enables users to familiarise themselves with the requirements and possibilities of cloud technology at an early stage and to recognise its advantages.


The unique feature of this solution is its specific focus on the requirements of federal, state and local governments, German authorities and public administration in general. "Sovereign Cloud Simulation" significantly automates the use of cloud resources and reduces the support effort for IT resources. It forms the basis for the simple, automated and secure operation of workloads and assets in a scalable enterprise cloud architecture. In close cooperation with Microsoft, Arvato Systems continuously adapts this environment to the latest technological and service-specific requirements.


As a multi-cloud provider, Arvato Systems works closely with the world's major cloud platform providers to deliver customer-centric solutions. Arvato Systems' extensive experience as a multi-cloud expert, combined with in-depth expertise around platforms such as Microsoft Azure, enables public authorities and businesses to make the most of the benefits of cloud technology while ensuring that all legal and regulatory requirements are met. Arvato Systems acts as a reliable partner that offers its customers the support and comprehensive knowledge they need to succeed in a constantly evolving digital landscape.


Klaus Fetzer, Managing Director for the target industries of the public sector and healthcare at Arvato Systems, sees the innovative "Sovereign Cloud Simulation" as a great opportunity for public administration: "We want to help the players in the public sector to prepare today for tomorrow. It is important for us to support cloud-based software development in the public sector and to assist administrations with technical as well as process-related and organisational integration.
