Open Telekom Cloud is an OpenStack-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering that Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Systems will operate. DT expects the platform will enable flexible, affordable, and secure computing, storage, network components, and other services on demand. Enterprises will be able to order IT infrastructure and software services via a central portal, with service availability following within a few minutes.

Deutsche Telekom will host Open Telekom Cloud in its Biere, Saxony-Anhalt, data center. It has announced SAP as one of its initial customers for the platform.

"We are adding a new, transformational cloud offering to our existing portfolio of cloud services," said Deutsche Telekom CEO Tim Hottges at CeBIT in Hanover. "For our business customers in Europe this is an important new service to support their digitization, and a critical milestone for us in our ambition to be the leading provider of cloud services in Europe."

Huawei has provided servers, storage, and networking hardware as well as its Cloud OS.
