Open Telekom Cloud for Business Customers

Public Sector

The sustainable, European solution
for the modern public sector

The sovereign cloud for the data-secure digitalization of the public sector

An efficient administration is becoming an increasingly important location factor. For acceptance by citizens and the economy, it is increasingly crucial to continue developing processes from paper and presence in a digital direction. Virtual visits to public authorities, new media in teaching, automated data exchange with companies or educational institutions, and the intelligent infrastructure of smart cities are just a few examples.

Cloud technology is indispensable as the technical base for implementing these diverse requirements. Data protection and data security, but also a sustainable operation and accessibility are significant requirements for a cloud at the cutting edge. With the Open Telekom Cloud, you as a public sector customer can rely on a technically superior infrastructure that complies with the GDPR - "Made in Germany" by Europe's largest cloud provider, Telekom.

Four good reasons:
Why the Open Telekom Cloud is the ideal solution for public projects

Icon Sustainable

Green energy for a
sustainable operation

100 percent green power and 30 percent lower energy consumption in our data centers ensures sustainable, environmentally-conscious cloud operations. Cloud solutions also enable increased energy efficiency compared to on-premises IT resources thanks to smart scaling effects and optimized utilization.

Icon Data secure

Data protection with stringent standards

With the Open Telekom Cloud, you will meet increased data protection requirements (GDPR). (Personal) data is stored and processed in accordance with GDPR regulations, proven by our numerous certifications. In addition, we guarantee the confidentiality of information requiring special protection in accordance with § 203 of the German Criminal Code (StGB) and the protection of social secrecy in accordance with § 35 of the German Social Code (SGB) I.

Icon Zero Outage

Zero outage for an extremely high availability

Our "Zero Outage" strategy includes state-of-the-art platforms and globally standardized processes. The physical security of our safely seperated data centers is also crucial for maximum resilience. This makes the Open Telekom Cloud particularly suitable for the operation of critical infrastructures (CRITIS) and cloud-based disaster recovery.

Icon OZG compliant

Optimal foundation for OZG implementation

The Open Telekom Cloud meets all the technical requirements, making it the appropriate platform for adhering to the Online Access Act (OZG) and implementing the general digitalization of administrative bodies. In addition, there is full conformity with Germany's government cloud strategy (DVS) of the IT Planning Council. But that's not all: 100% GDPR compliance also speaks in favor of a solution hosted in the Open Telekom Cloud. This ensures that the large volumes of personal data in public administration are well protected at all times.

The Open Telekom Cloud convinces

Our fleet partners and app users have high expectations when it comes to data security and data protection, especially in view of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In addition to the complete anonymization of data, the processing of information in Telekom's highly secure data centers is a compelling argument.
