Open Telekom Cloud for Business Customers

Dedicated Host (DeH)

With Dedicated Host (DeH), the Open Telekom Cloud offers physical servers for you to run your own virtual machines even more easily on a host-level isolated environment. The physical machines can be allocated flexibly and easily via the console in order to start directly with the provisioning of their own workloads. In contrast to Elastic Cloud Servers (ECS), which are made available from a pool that is accessible to all cloud users, dedicated hosts are provided individually for each customer.

Reasons for DeH in the Open Telekom Cloud

The allocated resources run in a GDPR-compliant environment and fulfil all European requirements to run secure workloads with the scalable options of a cloud. Non-European authorities have no access.

The customer has full control which applications will affect the allocated hardware and how many resources they would like to block. This customized hardware offers an increased level of security and performance, while avoiding the “noisy neighbor” effect (negative influences on allocated resource performance caused by other users).

Run only the VMs and applications that you want. There are multiple DeH types for every business requirement, e.g., memory or compute accelerated workloads. The hardware can be used in just few clicks and is charged on demand.

Key Features of DeH

DeH provides another layer of security at the physical level. In the event of a failure of the physical server on which the virtual ECS instance resides, the affected workload will be restored on another available dedicated host.

The isolation of computing resources allow an overview and full control of which workloads are running on the machine. Compared to common ECSs, unused resources, such as vCPU or memory of a host, are visible.

In contrast to Bare Metal Servers (BMS), the hardware resources for dedicated hosts are virtualized. DeH allows users to design their own virtual machines in different sizes. Via the visual console or the API, DeH and ECS VMs can be easily managed via Terraform, for example.

The Dedicated Host Service can help to reuse existing licences for RHEL, SUSE (SLES), Microsoft Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Office etc. This means you do not have to apply for a new one. With the BYOL license type, you can thus significantly reduce your costs.

Flexible billing

DeH includes three pricing models: Elastic (hourly billing), Reserved (discounted monthly pricing for continuous use), and Reserved Upfront (increased discounts through prepayment). The license costs for the operating system are already included.

Cloud service integration

DeH is easily integratable with other services to provide computing, storage, and network resources. Linked services include ECS, VPC, IMS, EVS, CSBS, CES, KMS and many more services to meet business needs in a cloud.
