NNIT Enterprise Hybrid Cloud for life sciences

NNIT Enterprise Hybrid Cloud (EHC) is an IaaS service connecting to both Microsoft Azure and private clouds to ensure full data integrity, security and GxP compliance — all while enabling configuration management to comply with customer specific needs.

For most life sciences companies, cloud is only an intention

Since the launch of cloud services, the life sciences industry has been enthusiastic about the benefits of cloud adoption: scalability, elasticity, availability and pay per use, to name a few. But regulatory barriers – data privacy, data integrity, the ability to validate applications, change control and configuration management – have kept life sciences executives from implementing their cloud strategies.

Leverage cloud benefits with full data integrity and GxP compliance

Born out of life sciences, NNIT understands the complex challenges inherent in the industry. That's why we developed a hybrid cloud focused on your unique needs, NNIT Enterprise Hybrid Cloud for life sciences (EHC). This GxP ready-for-inspection solution can connect to both public (via Microsoft Azure) and private (via NNIT) data centers. It ensures tight security and EMA and FDA compliance, and gives you full control of your data. It also offers global scalability, agile functionality and tailored service levels to help keep your costs in control while leveraging the benefits of the cloud.

Moreover, the solution enables easy and immediate utilization of global hyper-scale suppliers and provides managed and unmanaged environments that can be scaled as needed and thereby bring the development and test environments to production, while being in compliance and having control over own applications and data at all times.
