Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid
The best of two cloud worlds
As a combination of private and public cloud, hybrid clouds offer companies the best of two worlds. The low latency, high security and control inherent to private clouds operated in an in-house data center is combined with scalable resources for load peaks, usage-based billing and access to the latest services available in public clouds. For companies looking to implement a hybrid solution, Open Telekom Cloud offers both components from its certified, highly secure data centers. You can also use these components on dedicated hardware to increase security further.
Advantages of the Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid
We are the only provider to offer a managed hybrid cloud model based on OpenStack – and this is how you benefit from our solution:
How your company can benefit from the hybrid cloud
Flexibility:The choice is yours – operate private cloud services in your data center or with Deutsche Telekom.
You can decide whether to implement the private cloud in your own data center or one of Deutsche Telekom’s data centers. If you choose the first option, our technicians will deliver hardware and software for the private cloud service and take care of setup and installation. Furthermore, they will also handle operation and maintenance over the entire service life.
Efficiency:Easy scalability, uniform user experience and lower operating costs thanks to a consistent hardware and software basis.
Our hybrid cloud uses identical hardware and software components for private and public instances. In both cases, the software architecture is based on the open-source standard OpenStack, while the hardware basis is also uniform. This ensures optimum compatibility and generates numerous benefits for you:
- Thanks to the public cloud infrastructure, private cloud resources can be combined and scaled more easily.
- Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid enables you to operate the private and public cloud via a consistent console with the same graphical user interface (GUI). The two components are integrated so seamlessly in this GUI that your employees will not be able to tell which services come from which cloud.
A uniform basis helps prevent double work: Operating public and private clouds on different hardware and software requires two operating teams with different expertise for a single hybrid cloud infrastructure. However, if both the public and the private cloud are based on the same technology, a single team is all it takes – resulting in less effort for your IT.
Security:Private instances can be operated separately from the public infrastructure, making it easier to comply with guidelines.
Users who procure IT infrastructure from the hybrid cloud generally wish to use the public and private cloud in parallel, splitting workloads between the two operating models as required. In addition, some companies need to isolate certain workloads in the private cloud in order to meet particularly strict compliance guidelines. Companies in the health sector, for example, are required to operate certain workloads only in private clouds, without any connection to the split infrastructure.
With Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid, Deutsche Telekom is currently the only provider on the market to offer the option of operating private instances completely separately from the public infrastructure – while retaining the same look and feel.

Scalable from S to XL:
Our packages for the private cloud
Every hybrid cloud infrastructure requires a lot of careful planning. Especially the size of the private cloud must be selected carefully, as it cannot be scaled as easily as the public cloud. Open Telekom Cloud Hybrid thus features four basic configurations to cover all scenarios: S, M, L and XL. Depending on your needs, these configurations can be expanded with RAM, block and object storage, as well as additional services.
