Open Telekom Cloud for Business Customers

Managed Application Retirement Services (M.A.R.S.)

M.A.R.S. is the ideal solution for cleaning up IT landscapes and storing legacy data for legal and audit purposes in a central location.

M.A.R.S. (Managed Application Retirement Services) on the Open Telekom Cloud provide an end-to-end service to archive all data from post-productive system landscapes (SAP and non-SAP). Legacy data is extracted from the source application and transferred to the target system together with all logical correlations, ensuring targeted access from anywhere and at any time.

Service provision

The service provision starts with a data migration project. The customer-specific basic cloud infrastructure is provided as the first step of the project phase. This platform includes its own logically isolated database environment in the form of virtual servers in the Open Telekom Cloud. As further steps of the project, the customer data migration from the source to the target systems takes place. In the running phase the customers can access the historized data on the M.A.R.S platform operated in the Open Telekom Cloud.
