Private cloud solution for Swiss Federal Railways

With the Swiss Open Telekom Cloud, T-Systems provides SBB with the requested on-premise infrastructure

T-Systems provides private cloud resources to SBB as managed services

The “mobility of the future” requires dynamic, cloud-native infrastructures that can react quickly to the volatile demands of the customer environment. In turn, this requires a flexible ecosystem, based on digital IT, that makes it possible to add more trains to the schedule as needed in addition to the established interval timetable. The key to this is continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) for the digitalization of all customer needs.

The challenge

  • To expand to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, Swiss Federal Railways needed dedicated resources from the private cloud that were secure, flexibly scalable, and seamlessly compatible with other cloud resources
  • Hosting on Swiss soil and low latency times

The solution

  • T-Systems provides the SBB private cloud resources as managed services from the Swiss Open Telekom Cloud
  • These cloud instances are hosted and managed by digitalization specialists in the Swiss data centers

Customer benefits

  • Secure cloud instances provided for SBB with high flexibility and availability
  • Ensuring smooth operation and continuous development of the service portfolio within the cloud-native platform
  • The underlying cloud technology standard "OpenStack" forms the basis for sovereignty, while API-driven guarantees seamless compatibility with standard public cloud instances
