Fewer dependencies, more innovations: GAIA-X, the initiative for a European cloud, is taking shape. More than 300 companies are already committed to an independent, European data infrastructure.
The Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences relies on a hybrid-cloud model for teaching and research and on Telekom's public cloud offering. The Open Telekom Cloud stands out due to data protection and IT security. The choice was also popular with the students, according to Professor Dr. Lo Iacono.
Hybrid cloud is a successful model – but companies need to keep an eye on potential stumbling blocks when setting up and operating a hybrid solution. With a uniform hardware and software environment such as in the Open Telekom Cloud, problems can be avoided or eliminated from the outset.
ISG research analysts rate the Open Telekom Cloud a genuine alternative to U.S. hyperscalers. Strengths such as high-security data centers, the scope of services provided and the hybrid solution convinced the experts who compiled the benchmark study.
The cloud is now an integral part of the IT infrastructure of companies in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The next important step is to manage the hybrid cloud landscape correctly in order to actually enjoy the benefits of the cloud.
The Open Telekom Cloud will in future rely exclusively on the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor. All disk- intensive and high-performance flavors based on Xen will be phased out by the end of August 2020. Why companies should switch to KVM flavors in good time.
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.
The range of possible combinations seems endless, with each variant offering different advantages: How companies can find the best balance between performance, security, complexity, cost and latency when building a hybrid cloud infrastructure.
If you want to use hybrid cloud infrastructures, you need the appropriate expertise to set up and operate them – but not necessarily in-house. With the Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid Solution, Telekom offers a fully managed hybrid cloud solution that frees companies from cumbersome standard tasks.
Different industries, goals and scenarios – every company has different requirements when it comes to a hybrid cloud. But whether it’s real-time computing, high availability scenarios or high performance computing, there’s a suitable configuration for every application.
