Open Telekom Cloud: The European standard for public cloud services

The Open Telekom Cloud combines the well-known price advantage of public cloud services with maximum flexibility and compliance made in Germany. The public cloud services for companies meet the requirements for maximum data security and data protection – the data, contracts and all services are governed by German law.
Thanks to OpenStack technology, the Open Telekom Cloud offers maximum flexibility and independence. It is also characterized by zero outage and comprehensive IT support. Moreover, the cloud service can be effortlessly extended to include private cloud components to map hybrid requirements. The Open Telekom Cloud thus forms the best basis for all companies that want to design innovations rapidly – without setting aside IT security and data protection.

Pay-as-you-go services charged by the minute

Two pricing models are available with the Open Telekom Cloud: With Open Elastic, customers only pay for the resources they actually use. Resource consumption is measured and charged by the minute. The Reserved model allows customers to order resources for a period of 12, 24 or 36 months. They can decide whether to pay on a monthly basis or upfront. Customers who pay in advance enjoy significant discounts. Are you interested in specific prices? The price calculator will help you.

Logo Particulate

The customer

Particulate combines marketing with social engagement. The start-up from Koblenz, Germany, develops donation platforms with a fictitious donations currency – SocialCoins – for companies. Customers can donate the SocialCoins to selected projects and become the company's brand ambassador, while donations are distributed more democratically. For the operation of the platform, the founders opted for the IT resources of the Open Telekom Cloud.

The challenge

  • Particulate needed capacities from a public cloud to operate the platform
  • Customers demanded highest levels of data security and data protection
  • The previous platform operated by ProfitBricks was no longer sufficient
  • Small rented root servers were too expensive and inflexible because fast scaling was not possible
  • The company looked for a secure cloud solution that could scale flexibly

The solution

  • IT capacities from the Open Telecom Cloud
  • Flexible performance thanks to Auto Scaling: Particulate uses up to eight virtual machines, depending on need
  • Particulate uses Compute-II (c2) instances, each with 2 CPU and 4GB RAM
  • Particulate stores the data volumes in the secure and inexpensive Object Based Storage (OBS)

The benefits

  • When data volumes are high, the IT infrastructure scales automatically
  • Highest possible levels of data security and data protection
  • Particulate no longer needs its own servers
  • A direct contact person is available for architecture questions
Logo boot.AI

The customer

boot.AI helps companies to leverage their dormant potential using artificial intelligence.  The start-up develops AI systems that analyze and optimize processes. It’s not uncommon for companies to generate completely new business fields as a result. The Düsseldorf-based company gets the necessary IT resources for its artificial intelligence from the Open Telekom Cloud.

The challenge

  • Initially, the start-up used IT resources from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
  • However, customers made a higher level of data security and data protection a prerequisite before working with the company.
  • This prompted boot.AI to look for a new cloud provider with certified German data centers.

The solution

  • Open Telekom Cloud from redundant, multi-certified data centers in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.
  • boot.AI uses Bare Metal Servers with 2 x 14 processor cores, 512 GB RAM and eight P100 Nvidia graphics cards.
  • Document Database Service (DDS) based on the MongoDB NoSQL database directly from the Open Telekom Cloud.

The benefits

  • Simultaneous analysis of millions of data sets without having to load them into the memory first.
  • boot.AI does not need to set up and operate its own database server, the MongoDB database scales automatically as required.
  • boot.AI customers use AI with the highest level of data security and data protection.

The challenge

Logo Salzburg Research

The customer

Salzburg Research uses GPS data to calculate and analyze the traffic situation in the Austrian federal states of Salzburg and Tyrol. To do so, the research institute uses data from fleet operators, sensors along roads or those of motorists and public transport. The data helps to optimize traffic flows and traffic planning. The basis for data storage and processing: the Open Telekom Cloud.

The challenge

  • Other providers like Google Maps only show traffic data, but the data cannot be used for traffic planning.
  • Salzburg Research looked for a cloud solution for the StauFux-App as well as for data storage and processing.
  • The previous IT was not up to the task.
  • The cloud solution was to be flexibly scalable to accommodate new fleets

The solution

  • The platform and the app run in the Open Telekom Cloud.
  • The data from the fleet vehicles’ telematic systems, the app and road sensors are transferred to the Open Telekom Cloud and processed securely.
  • Traffic officials are given
  • access to historical traffic data to help them better plan construction measures.

The benefits

  • The institute can flexibly book IT resources and can thus add new fleets to the project, which contribute their data from telematic systems.
  • Telekom’s high security German data centers.
  • No more need for own hardware.
  • Fail-safe thanks to 99.95% availability.
  • Billing according to use.
Logo UFA GmbH.
Transports between filming locations, headquarters and archive are reduced. This saves time and money.
Post-production teams have access to raw material from anywhere and can work with it directly.
Finished video material is automatically archived in the cloud.
UFA is currently testing the process in a proof of concept (PoC).

The customer

UFA is one of the best-known entertainment brands in the world and market leader in film and television production in Germany. Founded more than 100 years ago, UFA has developed into a comprehensive content specialist providing digital and multimedia content – to all major German broadcasters and other partners.

The challenge

  • Previously, vans transported film material across Germany between the filming location, headquarters and archive.
  • Although this was customary practice in the industry, it was slow and also caused high transport costs.
  • For this reason, the entire workflow had to be digitized and automated without changing the employees’ workflow.

The solution

  • A fully automated cloud workflow with S3-compatible object storage in the Open Telekom Cloud.
  • Film crews transfer their footage to a network-attached storage (NAS) system. From there it is transferred to the cloud via the internet.
  • For that, Deutsche Telekom relies on widely-used standards. This ensures low costs and less complexity compared to individual software and hardware.

The benefit

  • Transports between filming locations, headquarters and archive are reduced. This saves time and money.
  • Post-production teams have access to raw material from anywhere and can work with it directly.
  • Finished video material is automatically archived in the cloud.
  • UFA is currently testing the process in a proof of concept (PoC).
