For further growth after the merger, Haiilo now needs a scalable IT platform. “Maximum security is mandatory,” Hähnlein emphasized, “because some of our solutions are among our customers’ business-critical applications.”
“I am not surprised that Haiilo, a young and innovative company, is the first customer to opt for our Sovereign Cloud,” said Oliver Queck, responsible for the Sovereign Cloud with Google at T-Systems. “That’s because our offering with our partner Google Cloud combines the two aspects that our customers keep asking for: full control over their data, rapid innovation and maximum systems agility.”
The joint T-Systems and Google Cloud offering is being continuously expanded. T-Systems takes responsibility for a range of operational measures and control mechanisms to maintain sovereignty. These include encryption and identity management. In addition, T-Systems will control relevant parts of the German Google Cloud infrastructure. Any physical or virtual access to facilities in Germany, such as routine maintenance and upgrades, will be under the joint supervision of T-Systems and Google Cloud.
