Deutsche Telekom beefs up public cloud offering with new partners

Deutsche Telekom has added Akamai and Bitnami services to its public cloud offering as it looks to grow its user base.

The Germany-based operator launched Open Telekom Cloud 12 months ago, promising to take on the likes of Amazon and Google and generate significant new revenues.

It had attracted 65,000 customers by the end of December 2016, and has now added to new partners.

The company has brought on board Akamai’s content delivery services to boost the web-performance of businesses in the e-commerce sector, for example.

Deutsche Telekom has also embedded Bitnami’s library of around 150 popular apps into its offering so businesses can run the likes of SugarCRM in the cloud.

Other updates include support for open-source database PostgreSQL, while users can upload their SAP applications to run on Open Telekom Cloud.

Deutsche Telekom plans to double revenues from business cloud services by 2018.

T-Systems, the operator’s enterprise arm which manages the public cloud portfolio, saw revenues fall 2.9 percent to €6.5 billion last year.

Earlier this month, it signed a partnership with BT to offer a range of global network services to business customers.

At this year’s Mobile World Congress, it said 10 new members had joined its Next Generation Enterprise Network Alliance, which it hopes will generate billions of dollars in extra revenues.
