To improve the customer experience in the online store or to evaluate large volumes of data in research: While undergoing digitalization, companies are seeing an increasing need for secure, reliable, and scalable computing and storage resources from the cloud. The Open Telekom Cloud in Amsterdam offers customers the IT resources they need for their use cases. For example, to provide their branches in the Benelux countries or in Scandinavia with high-performance cloud services – because the Open Telekom Cloud’s data centers in Amsterdam are located at one of the world's largest Internet hubs. The Dutch location also ensures geo-redundancy and increases the reliability of the Open Telekom Cloud, as it is thus possible to mirror the cloud infrastructure of the Biere site near Magdeburg, which is more than 500 kilometers away. This is in line with the recommendation for so-called critical infrastructures (CRITIS) of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI): It stipulates a minimum distance of 200 kilometers between data centers so that data and IT infrastructure are still available if one of the sites fails, for example due to natural disasters.
