- A unified solution for hybrid, private and public cloud services based on OpenStack
- Companies can now order Deutsche Telekom’s Open Telekom Cloud hybrid solution
04-19-2018: The Open Telekom Cloud is now available as a hybrid cloud solution – offering companies even more security, speed and convenience. Previously, Deutsche Telekom only provided a rich set of public cloud services as a public cloud platform from its certified and highly secure data centers in Germany. But now companies can also rely on these proven OpenStack-base public cloud services on top of dedicated servers, storage and network devices – that is, fully isolated infrastructure reserved solely for them. These can be located either at Deutsche Telekom’s data centers, which companies access via a secure connection, or Deutsche Telekom can install the necessary hardware and software directly on-site at a customer’s facility.
Compliance-conform cloud usage
This welcome development enables many companies, which previously were unable to use public cloud services for certain tasks, to consider using IT resources based on the open standard OpenStack. For example, they wish to use the Open Telekom Cloud locally on dedicated servers at facilities abroad due to compliance or latency concerns. The certified Open Telekom Cloud already complies with Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid Solution makes it easy for companies to start using the cloud – even without prior cloud knowhow. Experts from Deutsche Telekom handle all aspects of implementation, operation, maintenance and service according to the highest security standards. Another advantage: When required, companies can expand their dedicated resources with public cloud capacity from Deutsche Telekom’s data centers at any time.
“With the Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid Solution, companies can profit from the proven benefits of the Open Telekom Cloud with a dedicated solution as well. We are currently the only provider on the market offering this kind of managed-hybrid-cloud model based on OpenStack,” says Frank Strecker, who is responsible for Deutsche Telekom’s cloud business. “This gives companies access to a unique level of flexibility beyond any on-premise and public cloud limitations, incredible processing speed and our well-known high standards regarding security and data protection.”
“The Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid Solution provides customers a unique experience of using popular public cloud services on a secure, fully managed and dedicated environment and also the flexibility of using public cloud services of Open Telekom Cloud in parallel,” says Zhipeng Ren from Huawei’s Cloud Business Unit. “As technology partner and hardware and software supplier for the Open Telekom Cloud, we remain proud of our product innovation and robust alliance with Deutsche Telekom.”
Companies can order the Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid Solution starting immediately. Deutsche Telekom will begin installing dedicated components at customer sites in the second quarter of 2018.
