The Privacy Shield is void – that was recently confirmed by the ECJ. This makes it all the more important to protect data in the cloud from governmental access. But very few cloud services can guarantee this beyond any doubt. The Open Telekom Cloud protects data from being accessed by a state.
Anyone who writes a tutorial for the Open Telekom Cloud in the community can also start earning money right away. Deutsche Telekom pays 300 euros for each how-to article that makes it easier for others to work with the cloud. How exactly does it work? All the details are in the blog post!
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.
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.
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.
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.
