As a supplier of virtualization and cloud computing software, VMware provides virtual applications, servers, storage resources and networks, which reduce IT costs and increase the efficiency and agility of IT infrastructure. Your own virtualized data and storage capacities can be expanded as infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) from the cloud with the click of a button.
With Dynamic Services for Infrastructure with vCloud (DSI vCloud), T-Systems offers an IaaS product based on VMware’s virtualization technology from a virtual private cloud. The IaaS offering and the virtual machines are available from fully protected and security-certified data centers. The data centers, located in Germany, offer the highest possible standards of reliability and data protection in compliance with German laws and regulation, helping companies to meet high availability and business continuity requirements.
The offering includes backup functions, management of the provided operating systems as well as disaster recovery capabilities. DSI vCloud uses a scalable operating environment in the form of a virtual private cloud that can be easily integrated into an existing VMware virtualization environment. Control of resources is carried out through self-service on an online self-service portal, the Cloud Manager (hybrid model).
DSI vCloud can also be used by customers as a virtual private cloud variant using a secure network (private model). Through the self-service portal, administration and management of the virtual machines is carried out independently with the click of a button. Virtual data centers of varying sizes and usage models, with predefined scopes of service are made available to facilitate the customized use of resources, with optional extension possibilities included.
Since costs are flexible depending on what is needed, fixed operating costs are eliminated. With DSI vCloud, new business models can be implemented quickly and risk-free. If the business idea doesn't meet the anticipated demand, the company can quickly reduce capacity.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) bare-metal infrastructure and VMware SDDC technology enable performance, compatibility and easy portability of workloads between local environments and the AWS cloud. Secure and highly stable, businesses can use native AWS services for storage, databases, internet of things (IoT), security or mobile applications. The many innovations can be integrated into enterprise applications running on the VMware virtualization platform for computing, storage and networking.
VMware Cloud on AWS is already available worldwide (South America, USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia), with additional locations to follow. The service is provided in a single-tenant, i.e. the customer's own environment on physically separated AWS bare-metal systems, giving customers dedicated access to their VMware vCenter. These are services that have not yet been possible in a shared and public environment. By taking into account the availability, performance, compliance and security of each cloud environment, organizations can strategically decide where to run applications – according to their business needs – or where to store their data.
Our entire private cloud infrastructure works perfectly. If we need additional resources from the DSI vCloud, we get them in seconds.
To prepare for the future, companies need four building blocks: connectivity, cloud and infrastructure, security, and digitalization. With the extension of the vCloud into a private cloud, you get a IaaS offer based on VMware
