Managed Application Retirement Services (M.A.R.S.)

M.A.R.S. is the ideal solution for cleaning up IT landscapes and storing legacy data in a central location.

M.A.R.S. (Managed Application Retirement Services) on the Open Telekom Cloud provide an end-to-end service to archive all data from post-productive system landscapes (SAP and non-SAP). Legacy data is extracted from the application and transferred to the platform together with all logical correlations, ensuring targeted access from anywhere and at any time.
