Open Telekom Cloud for Business Customers


Flexibility and security thanks to free software

A software basis that creates trust

The aim of the Open Telekom Cloud is to provide European companies with a trustworthy cloud platform to which they can safely entrust sensitive data. That is why we use OpenStack as the software basis. A dedicated community develops this open-source solution and subjects the code to a rigorous public review before each release to rule out bugs and security vulnerabilities. In addition, the widespread use of OpenStack ensures that users can easily switch providers. For our customers, this means transparency, security – and complete flexibility.

An instantly scalable solution based on OpenStack with such high security and data protection standards from a well-known supplier is currently unparalleled. It was therefore clear that we should move our SPLA Manager to the Open Telekom Cloud.

Your benefits with OpenStack

Place your trust in a future-proof standard

This community is continuously driving the development of the cloud operating system and is steadily growing. Today, it has over 100,000 members in 187 states.

As a result, you benefit from a future-proof structure that grows dynamically with the demands of the market.

Ensure flexibility when choosing cloud providers

If companies select a provider for their cloud solutions that relies on proprietary technology used only by them, they may unintentionally become dependent. This is because switching to a company that uses a different software often results in high costs and risks. This effect is called vendor lock-in. Since OpenStack is an open software and therefore used by numerous providers, it ensures maximum flexibility when choosing your partners.


Switch effortlessly between private cloud and public cloud

Most companies are aiming for a hybrid cloud strategy. Thanks to OpenStack, Open Telekom Cloud can offer these businesses a deal that no cloud provider can match: They have the possibility to use both the public and private cloud with the same software base — regardless of whether these are run on in-house servers or in a Telekom data center. This way, companies can not only integrate public and private cloud easily, but also move resources between the two cloud worlds with little effort.
