We provide fixed-network/broadband, mobile communications, Internet, and IPTV products and services for consumers, and information and communication technology (ICT) solutions for business and corporate customers.
Deutsche Telekom is present in more than 50 countries. With a staff of some 228,000 employees throughout the world, we generated revenue of 62.7 billion Euros in the 2014 financial year, over half of it outside Germany.*
Deutsche Telekom was one of the first large european companies publicly supporting the OpenStack project.
The visible engagement started with the launch of the TelekomCloud BusinessMarketplace in 2012.
Today a number of engineers from Deutsche Telekom enhance OpenStack by contributing to projects around networking, testing and storage.
Deutsche Telekom leverages OpenStack in a number of areas; three projects deserve highlighting:
TelekomCloud BusinessMarketplace (a SaaS offering primarily targeted at European SMBs) uses OpenStack at its backbone and was launched in summer 2012.
In the Terastream project, an NFV cloud is built, hosting network oriented services in the network as part of the network transformation.
T-Systems has launched a public cloud based on OpenStack in March 2016: Open Telekom Cloud. This is built on top of Huawei's FusionSphere OpenStack distribution and is installed in German datacenters and run by T-Systems European Operations staff.
