More space, more redundancy, more security: The Open Telekom Cloud is growing. And is expanding its capacities with a twin-core data center in Amsterdam. At the new facility, servers and storage operate under the highest security standards – ecologically sustainable, and GDPR- and regulatory-compliant.
The resources have been available in beta status since the beginning of March. As of now, the twin data center in Aalsmeer and Almere near Amsterdam is in productive operation. "With the opening of our cloud data center in Amsterdam, Europe is gaining data sovereignty," said Adel al Saleh, Telekom Board Member and CEO of T-Systems. "And companies are gaining security. Because the European Union’s data protection regulations apply."
Frank Strecker, Senior Vice President Global Cloud Computing & Big Data at T-Systems, explains in a video why the Open Telekom Cloud is expanding its capacities and how customers will benefit.
