Open Telekom Cloud for Business Customers

Disaster Recovery in the Cloud

After an incident such as a fire or a virus attack, a quick recovery of operations is critical. This requires a disaster recovery site that serves as a backup and can quickly replace failed systems. Services that implement disaster recovery in the Open Telekom Cloud give your company a high level of security and at the same time relieve your IT of the burden of maintaining redundant data centers. The decisive factor here is data protection: after all, a backup usually contains personal data. The Open Telekom Cloud not only complies with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), but is also under European management – and therefore not accessible to foreign authorities. What's more, its services can be configured on request to meet the German Federal Office for Information Security's (BSI) georedundancy criteria, which were tightened in 2018.

Georedundancy ensures maximum security

Earthen walls against brute force attacks, meter-high security fences and redundancy through pair-wise construction: Our data centers are among the most modern and secure in the world. The physical distance between their locations provides additional security: Three are located in Germany in Magdeburg and Biere, and two others near Amsterdam. As a result, our data centers also meet the BSI's tightened criteria for georedundancy in 2019.


Disaster recovery according to European data protection regulations

When setting up a disaster recovery site to house customer data, it is crucial that it also complies with European data protection regulations – such as the GDPR.
