Users of the Open Telekom Cloud can now use two prominent new additions: Red Hat Linux, a highly popular operating system, and the Bitnami software library are now available in the Open Telekom Cloud.
"With Bitnami in the Open Telekom Cloud, our customer offerings are more attractive than ever, and we are thrilled by this partnership," says Frank Strecker, Senior Vice President Cloud Partner Products & Ecosystems at T-Systems, who is responsible for Deutsche Telekom's global cloud business. "The OpenStack architecture of the Open Telekom Cloud makes it easier for companies to digitize and we can enhance things together."
Open Telekom Cloud with partner Bitnami now offers more than 150 applications in a complete SaaS (Software as a Service) suite. The spectrum ranges from typical open-source applications for day-to-day business to special developer tools. The library classifies the apps in categories – such as document management, project management, CRM and ERP – and updates all the tools (such as Wordpress, Joomla, Magento, Hadoop, and MySQL) to the latest versions automatically. These stacks (data packages) are already preconfigured for optimized use in the Open Telekom Cloud. The Bitnami Launchpad enables simple handling of the entire application, which can be rolled out with just a few clicks of the mouse. The Launchpad also makes it possible to start the applications directly, even if the user is not logged on to the Open Telekom Cloud. Users only have to pay for the computing capacity they use. New customers can use a free demo account for a test hour.
Red Hat now also available
Many companies that use the free OpenStack cloud architecture and Linux operating system trust in Red Hat software. In response, Deutsche Telekom now offers the manufacturer-supported operating system versions 6.8 and 7.3 (RHEL – Red Hat Enterprise Linux) from the Open Telekom Cloud. In Red Hat, Deutsche Telekom has gained a partner with over 20 years of open source experience and a leader in the further development of OpenStack.
