Public, private or hybrid cloud? It's all possible. Telekom offers a comprehensive cloud portfolio with a multicloud ecosystem that supports companies of all sizes in their digital transformation.
In cloud computing, a computer network is extremely standardised and highly automated. This makes it relatively easy to operate. Projects are implemented quickly. It scales when business is booming as well as during quiet periods. Customers only pay for what they actually use. These factors make the cloud so interesting. Especially in times of Corona: those who switched to the cloud in time saved IT costs when orders fell. Or, conversely, could quickly meet a spike in demand.
What is private cloud and what is public cloud?
Both are cloud computing, but in different forms. With private cloud, many computers share the tasks for one client. At T-Systems it is called Future Cloud Infrastructure. With public cloud, several clients sometimes rent a computer. For this, T-Systems has entered into extensive partnerships with Microsoft, Amazon and Google – the so-called hyperscalers. In addition, the IT service provider offers its own public cloud, the so-called Open Telekom Cloud. Furthermore, a new type of public cloud is emerging: The Sovereign Cloud aims to create a trustworthy public cloud offering for all industries in Europe, independent of American or Asian influences. Data sovereignty and the General Data Protection Regulation are the decisive aspects here. At this point, T-Systems is working together with the French provider OVHCloud. It supplies its own hardware and software from Europe. T-Systems operates the computer pool in its own German data centres.
T-Systems: The pilot for and between the cloud worlds
The Telekom subsidiary offers solutions from a single source and does so independently of manufacturers. Now also with the public cloud. T-Systems buys public cloud resources at favourable conditions and builds an end-to-end solution from them: with one cloud or with several. This is where cloud computing can become complex again: companies active in hybrid-cloud environments can quickly lose track. The resulting bill can end up larger than expected.
Through the partnerships with AWS and Microsoft, clients also get access to more than 2,000 certified Microsoft experts and 1,000 Azure experts – and to exclusive programs and special conditions. T-Systems has set up its own programs for the path to the cloud. Future IT Transformation (FITT) brings legacy information-technology systems into the modern age. A total of six modules convert inflexible Cobol or Java programs into modern microservices, make information from old databases and mainframe systems usable, or bring mainframes securely and gradually onto the cloud. The Cloud Migration Framework is the recipe for a fast path to the public cloud. The experts at T-Systems carefully analyse each client’s individual situation, before automatically transferring their applications to the target platform and further supporting them from there.
It's happening in the cloud.
