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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
More options, flexibility and convenience: The Open Telekom Cloud is getting a new release. It includes an update for the OpenStack software architecture to the new version called Queens. And the extension of many existing functions and services. But that's not all.
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.
The cloud offers companies countless opportunities for cost-effective backup and disaster recovery concepts. But there are big differences: Not every cloud storage is equally suitable for every application purpose. Which storage is best suited to whom depends on the scenario.
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.
