T-Systems consolidates from 89 to 13 data centers worldwide

In what it calls the world's largest transformation project, T-Systems has reduced the number of its data centers worldwide from 89 to 13 while increasing its overall compute and storage capacity by approximately 25 percent.

The transformation comprised a total of 5,200 migration projects with around 23,600 compute servers alone, 60 percent of these in Germany.

"We are particularly proud of the fact that we were able to implement the transformation without any loss of quality in customer operations," explained Jörn Kellermann, responsible for IT production at T-Systems.


  • In September, T-Systems opened its Biere II data center in Saxony-Anhalt after 18 months of construction.  With the completion of the second construction phase, Biere now boasts an IT production area of over 11,000 square meters, providing enough space for up to 100,000 servers. The campus has the potential to grow to nearly 40,000 square meters.

CERN Picks T-Systems and Huawei for European Science Cloud

T-Systems has been awarded a €5.3 million contract for a joint Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP), led by CERN, that covers the design, prototyping and pilot phase of the Helix Nebula Science Cloud. Huawei was named as technology partner. Three other consortia were also selected.

The contract covers the establishment of a European hybrid cloud platform that will support high-performance, data-intensive scientific use-cases sponsored by 10 of Europe’s leading public research organizations and co-funded by the European Commission.

CERN is operating one of the world's largest OpenStack private clouds with more than 7,000 servers and 190,000 cores.

T-Systems said that as more and more research organizations start to use cloud services, demand is growing for dynamic capacity that can be transparently activated in a hybrid cloud. Open Telecom Telekom Cloud, operated by T-Systems and supported by Huawei, is based on the OpenStack open source architecture and facilitates the management and migration of data and resources between private and public clouds.

As part of an earlier procurement in 2016, CERN and T-Systems evaluated the capabilities of the Open Telekom Cloud in a 3-months pilot. “Following the extensive tests, it has become apparent, that Open Telekom Cloud can support the high-performance and data-intensive workloads required”, summarizes Andreas Falkner, Vice President Open Telekom Cloud from T-Systems.

Next to CERN following research organizations plan to make use of the European Hybrid Cloud:

  • Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), Italy
  • Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), Germany
  • Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, (CNRS), France
  • Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT), Germany
  • SURFsara, Netherlands
  • Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), United Kingdom
  • European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Germany
  • Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE), Spain
  • European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), France

ADVA Joins T-Systems’ Advanced Terabit Demonstrator Project

ADVA Optical Networking announced its participation in T-Systems’ advanced Terabit Demonstrator project, which focuses on the transportation of terabit applications between high-performance computing centers in Dresden and Stuttgart (a span of over 1000 km) using T-Labs’ SASER optical testbed.  T-Systems is using software-defined networking and virtualized network functions to show how programmability can be used in advanced networks.

ADVA is supplying key components of this project, including 100 Gbps coherent systems along with its latest 33GHz ultra-narrow channel spacing technology.

“The Terabit Demonstrator isn’t simply about showcasing the future of our networks. It’s about collaboration. It’s about harnessing our strengths to see what’s truly possible,” said Eduard Beier, head, Terabit Demonstrator, T-Systems. “That’s what’s so special about the team at ADVA Optical Networking and their technology. They’ve developed an open optical networking solution that is so different to others on the market. This is especially true when you consider its transparency. It interoperates with other vendors’ equipment in such a unique way. This is a key advantage in today’s heterogeneous network infrastructures and especially in our testbed. ADVA Optical Networking was able to interoperate with a broad range of other vendors’ technology without any need for special conversions.”

@SAP Teams with T-Systems on Cloud-Based IoT Service

SAP and T-Systems introduced a connected logistics platform for processing large volumes of data from Internet of Things (#IoT) deployments.

The smartPORT logistics networking solution combines SAP Connected Logistics software and the Connected Car solution from T-Systems.

The Hamburg Port Authority is using the solution to provide traffic information and services relating to the port using mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones. The objective was to optimize traffic and logistics processes in order to handle large volumes of goods in the port.

SAP said its smartPORT logistics offering could be used at other logistics hubs such as airports, parcel distribution centers and production sites. Both companies are committed to work to extend the ongoing cooperation for cloud services in the domain of telematics services and real-time information for logistics solutions.

“Today, the logistics industry is frequently faced with the challenge of having to optimize flows of goods in a limited area,” said Horst Leonberger, head of the Connected Car business unit of Deutsche Telekom. “With smartPORT logistics, we enable our customers to manage their flows of goods in real time and therefore make optimum use of the limited space.”

T-Systems Unifies onto Dynamic Cloud Platform with Cisco

Deutsche Telekom's T-Systems will operate all cloud solutions on a single Dynamic Cloud Platform (DCP), which it plans to launch shortly. The unified platform, which will begin operations in Munich, will support all of the company's cloud offers, including Infrastructure as a Service, Collaboration as a Service and Software as a Service.

T-Systems' Dynamic Cloud Platform (DCP) was developed by Cisco.  The DCP is fully IPv6-capable and features redundant 10GbE fiber connections between all components with quality of service for data prioritization. All DCP locations are constructed according to the twin core principle, which ensures that backups are always stored in a second data center.

The Dynamic Cloud Platform promises to reduce operating expenses for T-System thanks to standardization.  Automated processes will make it easier to launch new services within a few hours or days

T-Systems said it will work closely with customers to gradually migrate systems that were spread over multiple cloud platforms to the new environment.  T-Systems plans to roll out the platform to its data center in Houston (USA) later this year, followed by Frankfurt. If demand rises Magdeburg (Germany) will be next, as well as a data center in the Asia-Pacific region.

"Converting to other systems is generally burdensome and generates high costs and downtime. Thanks to the Dynamic Cloud Platform, this will no longer be a problem for growing customers who need more capacity," says Ferri Abolhassan, Director of Production and Board member at T-Systems. "Customers can combine cloud services flexibly and use them as needed. This means better service and more comfort for the more than 12,000 different customer landscapes that can now be operated in one data center."
