Deutsche Telekom today introduced a new public cloud built on the Cisco cloud platform and compliant with German data sovereignty legislation.
In a press statement, Deutsche Telekom said its business division T-Systems will operate and manage the new infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering, the DSI Intercloud.
Public cloud service will be offered from German data center for Europe. The company noted that the services will support a “highly secure” Internet of Things.
Starting in December, companies of all sizes will be able to tap IT services in a pay-as-you-go model through Telekom’s new cloud portal.
Deutsche Telekom said the service will be available without minimum purchase requirements and contract periods, starting from EUR 0.05 per hour. Additional storage starts at EUR 0.02 per gigabyte.
Data security company Covata, which participated in a pilot test of the platform, will be the first customer to use the DSI Intercloud infrastructure services from Germany.
