Open Telekom Cloud for Business Customers

Science & Research

Immense resources on demand from the leadingEuropean cloud

Scientific research activities all over the world generate a treasure trove of experimental data unequalled in any other sector.

However, this data can only deliver new findings when it is analyzed properly. Clouds enable researchers to store and search existing and new data pools, establish correlations and deploy artificial intelligence. In addition, the cloud is an excellent vehicle for helping scientific start-ups get off the ground.

ReferenceParticle physics calculations at the Large Hadron Collider

As part of the Helix Nebula Science Cloud project, the Open Telekom Cloud has proven itself as a hybrid expansion component for calculations of particle physics experiments on the Large Hadron Collider. Up to 10,000 CPUs were made available on demand for a period of two years, allowing high-throughput tasks to be processed fully automatically, strengthening the trust in cloud computing services in Europe.

Load peak requirements

Simulation applications trigger load peak jobs that require large amounts of resources for a short period of time. However, the resources available at research institutes are limited and often exhausted, thereby delaying the publication of scientific results. In such cases, cloud bursting into the Open Telekom Cloud reduces the time it takes.

  • Obtain scientific results more quickly
  • Use IT easily and as you need it
  • Access immense capacities

Long-term storage of experimental data

Breathtaking quantities of data are generated in all disciplines relating to natural science and engineering. With a cloud-based object storage solution, research institutes can reduce costs for their own storage management and benefit from a future-proof solution, as the storage grows along with their needs.

  • Store your data cost-effectively
  • The storage grows in accordance with your needs
  • Benefit from a high degree of data security

Science start-ups

Scientific institutes frequently spin off start-ups in order to offer their findings in the private sector. Entrepreneurs are often supported in this task by incubator initiatives. A functional IT infrastructure is essential to help start-ups get off the ground quickly. The Open Telekom Cloud offers everything they need for this.

  • Get started quickly: all IT resources at the touch of a button
  • Save initial investments for IT – only pay for what you use
  • Focus on the development of your business

From project to web service

Providers of scientific services often start with project business, which involves processing specific data or developing specific applications for their customers. Standardized variants of the applications enable them to offer their services online, for example with a subscription model. To do this, the software needs an appropriate operating platform.
