Bonn/Berlin, November 13, 2018
With its November release, the Open Telekom Cloud now offers more IT security ex works: With the encryption for the Workspace Service and Mongo DB, companies can now quickly and easily protect their digital workstations as well as the scalable, relational databases in the Open Telekom Cloud. There are also further improvements to Telekom's public cloud offering based on OpenStack in the areas of services and management.
Storage Disaster Recovery Service: Simply always available
What’s more, the Open Telekom Cloud has simplified the creation and operation of backup and disaster recovery solutions. With the new Storage Disaster Recovery Service, these kinds of systems and data can be easily mirrored across multiple availability zones. This means that information and applications remain available even if disruptions occur in one of the two zones. The Open Telekom Cloud with its data centers in Magdeburg and Biere has always offered the possibility of mirroring instances across two availability zones. However, up to now this redundancy could only be set up manually. The new Storage Disaster Recovery Service now significantly simplifies the process – even when companies want to secure legacy applications before they move to the cloud.
Independent Quota Management: Resources and costs always in view
With the new Independent Quota Management, the Open Telekom Cloud offers the option of limiting resources per tenant or project on the basis of individually defined rules. In addition, resources from the Elastic Cloud Server, Bare Metal Server and dedicated host areas can now be limited separately via quota management. In this way, companies can define different limits for different flavors, remaining flexible and at the same time avoiding inadvertently high costs.
Health Dashboard: Online availability status
The Open Telekom Cloud guarantees availability of 99.95 percent. Users will soon be able to see for themselves: The new Health Dashboard (live in December) shows the status of all the Open Telekom Cloud services online on one website. For example, if one of their cloud services is not working, with just a few clicks a company can rule out an error on the part of Telekom.
