Amazon Web Services (AWS), the fast-innovating cloud market leader, provides maximum flexibility and speed with the comprehensive services of its AWS platform – especially when developing cloud native applications. AWS currently offers 140 services, thousands of features and over 5,000 applications. The vast variety as well as daily changes and updates not only provide for various usage possibilities, they also make the system complex and call for tremendous effort from an IT department. This is exactly where T-Systems' AWS experts come in.
Security and transparency for all AWS-related services
Using the framework of Managed Cloud Services for AWS, customers benefit from all the advantages of the AWS Public Cloud in combination with reliable network connections and the Telekom subsidiary’s outstanding security expertise. The offer begins with joint development of the right public cloud strategy including security analysis. In addition to operational support and numerous billing and network services, the team also offers support for central management of all public cloud services using the multi-cloud framework.
The AWS ensures that all data protection requirements are met and costs are clearly allocated. This is especially relevant for companies with many access points who migrate a growing number of applications and data to AWS.
Security & encryption
Enterprises with increased security needs for the AWS environment benefit from managed access, secure network configurations, encryption and key management.
High operating availability
Measures such as performance monitoring, health check, network services, automation and backup ensure high availability of conventional and cloud native apps in the AWS cloud.
Migrating infrastructure from classic systems or a private cloud to AWS is facilitated by analyzing cloud readiness, application & infrastructure assessments, training and professional change management.

Our cooperation begins with the selection of suitable services and tools from the AWS universe.
Consulting from the cloud pioneer
The AWS platform offers numerous components, each covering different requirements and use cases. For example, the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) web service provides scalable computing capacity, while the Simple Storage Service S3 provides developers with object storage for a wide variety of applications such as mobile apps, websites or IoT devices. On the other hand, the Redshift data warehouse provides the basis for fast and intelligent big data analyses. In an initial strategy workshop, the required functionalities are worked out and, if necessary, supplemented with in-depth workshops, for example, on the topics DevSecOps, cloud migration or security. This results in an individualized architecture for the customer – naturally based on the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
Direct line to the AWS Cloud
Once the strategy is in place, T-Systems provides a dedicated connection to the AWS Cloud as an AWS Direct Connect Partner and offers end-to-end managed networks – either purely virtualized or in combination with traditional Telekom network products. At the same time, companies receive support in setting up, operating and managing the entire infrastructure, from onboarding, key, identity & access management and data classification to monitoring and incident management. The team of experts ensures that all security and compliance requirements are met, provides a direct contact in the event of a malfunction and handles all coordination with the AWS Support Center.
Optimize costs and usage
Once you have taken the step towards the cloud and stable operations have been ensured, the next step is to optimally manage the use of resources. In addition to monitoring all resources via AWS CloudWatch, T-Systems also keeps an eye on billing and provides regular reports on costs and consumption. Tracking and alarm functions make it immediately apparent when a budget is exceeded and provide recommendations for action. This allows companies to retain full control over all their investments while leveraging the full innovative power of AWS services for agile and rapid cloud development.
