More and more companies are showing interest in the opportunity to book extremely powerful computing and storage capacities from the public cloud when required. That was demonstrated at the trade fairs Teratec Forum near Paris and the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in Frankfurt am Main. “In France especially, we as European cloud providers met with keen interest,” said Max Guhl, Solution Sales, Open Telekom Cloud, who was there for T-Systems. “For one, many attendees had a general interest in high performance computing from the cloud, and many French company representatives were positively surprised to learn that in Europe there is a genuine alternative to the U.S. hyperscalers: the Open Telekom Cloud.”
