What do you do when supply chains come to a halt overnight, orders fail to materialize, and production comes to a standstill? They say that in times of crisis, one should invest in infrastructure. But what if the money is suddenly missing? In order to support companies that have been shaken by the Corona crisis, T-Systems is now offering new customers up to EUR 15,000 worth of credit for the use of IT infrastructure, such as computing and storage resources, from the Open Telekom Cloud – up to EUR 5,000 per month for three months.
In addition to the credit for the use of IT infrastructure, companies receive up to four hours of consultation on cloud migration, cloud assessment, and technical support free of charge. Companies can now apply for support. This saves companies from having to purchase servers in their own data center and allows them to implement IT projects, for example, even if they are unable to set up their own hardware due to delivery bottlenecks, contact bans, or lockdowns. For example, they can develop applications or operate collaboration platforms in the cloud if their own capacities are no longer sufficient. No one has to be personally present at the company, an internet connection is sufficient: with the Open Telekom Cloud, companies can also set up servers spontaneously from their home office, develop or test software, and scale services as needed at any time.
The greatest strengths of the Open Telekom Cloud include IT security and data protection. This is confirmed by numerous certificates. Almost no other cloud solution is as secure. The data centers are located exclusively on German soil in Saxony-Anhalt (in Biere and Magdeburg).
All data processed therein are subject to the strict German data protection regulations and GDPR. In addition, the Open Telekom Cloud complies with the provisions of the Trusted Cloud Data Protection Profile (TCDP). This certifies that Open Telekom Cloud is currently one of the few cloud offerings on the market to have a legally compliant data protection certification for defined cloud services. And with at least 99.95 percent guaranteed availability, companies can also be sure of stable operation at all times.
In addition, the Open Telekom Cloud has been certified according to TISAX 3 (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange), a mutually recognized testing standard for information security. A large number of car manufacturers and suppliers to the German automotive industry require that their business partners have an existing TISAX certification. This is because the certificate demonstrates particularly high standards in terms of IT security, among other things.
