T-Systems launches "Infrastructure as a Service"

T-Systems introduced a cloud-based "Infrastructure as a Service" that allows corporate customers to purchase CPU power at short notice and on an hourly basis. The service is free for T-Systems customers during the pilot phase (November 2010 through February 2011).

T-Systems is providing access controls, data security and protection, defined Service Level Agreements, full scalability and attractive prices. All data centers, and consequently all customer data, are located in Germany, certified according to ISO standard 27001 for security and also audited by customers. Each customer's applications are logically separated and additional security precautions protect against access via the Internet.

Customers can combine other services from the T-Systems portfolio with the IaaS offering (Infrastructure as a Service). They can obtain information about the system uptime, resources used, processor and storage capacity, and costs from the customer portal.

Customers can choose from a selection of platforms in T-Systems data centers. They can simply access pre-configured systems and modify these to suit their requirements. The service is based on an x86 architecture that supports 32 Bit and 64 Bit operating systems and applications.
