The Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor has established itself in the OpenSource community. The Open Telekom Cloud is therefore switching off all Xen-based flavors in the medium term and replacing them with KVM flavors. What companies that are currently still using Xen-based flavors need to consider when switching.
Digitalization is changing the media world: blockchain, artificial intelligence and virtual reality require scalable and economical IT infrastructures from the cloud. For the first time, the Open Telekom Cloud was a guest at MEDIENTAGE MÜNCHEN, Europe's largest media congress.
Some companies may feel that their IT resources are most secure in the supposedly best protected environment of their own company premises. However, they often can’t back that up with rational arguments. Nils Magnus explains why the public cloud can actually be the more secure alternative.
A guide to the hybrid cloud: The new white paper reveals what companies should be aware of when building and operating hybrid cloud infrastructures, shows application examples and helps with the correct dimensioning of resources.
Open interfaces, deployment methods, container solutions: Discussions about deployment scenarios and migration strategies dominated the Deutsche OpenStack Tage conference in Berlin. One of the key takeaways: Employees and reliability play an important role for the success of an OpenStack project.
The Open Telekom Cloud is starting the first phase towards standardization of the hypervisor. In future, we will rely on the Kernel-Based Virtual Machine Hypervisor (KVM). In this connection, in the first phase, the General Purpose Flavors based on the Xen Hypervisor will be discontinued on December 31, 2019.
High-performance computing (HPC) solves complex problems in an extremely short time. Companies have the choice between several methods that have different advantages and disadvantages. HPC expert Alfred Geiger provides guidance and shows which technology is best suited for different needs.
Ain’t no mountain high enough – or: Hardly any workload large enough for Telekom's scalable computing resources. How does that work? By combining high-performance computing from the Open Telekom Cloud with supercomputing capacities from the High-Performance Computing Center in Stuttgart.
The area of high-performance computing (HPC) also presents companies with new challenges related to IT security and data protection. In an interview, T-Systems experts Max Guhl and Alfred Geiger explain how companies can securely use HPC from the public cloud and what they should look out for.
