Exactly one year after its launch, Deutsche Telekom is expanding its public cloud, Open Telekom Cloud by publishing the latest release that includes the top cloud applications such as SAP, Akamai and Bitnami.

SAP users can now run their applications on the Open Telekom Cloud; for faster web services Akamai is now available; and in the second quarter the Bitnami software library with some 150 Apps will be available. 

The Open Telekom Cloud, which is based on OpenStack architecture, now also supports PostgreSQL, a frequently used open-source database. It expands the database portfolio, which users can access as needed via the Open Telekom Cloud

Deutsche Telekom has also run an OpenStack upgrade on the Mitaka version, improving stability and making the system more scalable. Deutsche Telekom and its business customer arm, T-Systems, collaborate closely with the OpenStack Foundation to further advance the provider-independent architecture. 

SAP users now have two options on the Open Telekom Cloud. They can upload their SAP applications and use them on the cloud platform, i.e., for training sessions, or they can book a service managed by T-Systems experts. Customers can also test SAP HANA as well as the latest S/4HANA software, even on short notice. All applications on the high-performance public cloud infrastructure are available as complete appliances including defined services. 

Customers who i.e. run web shops on the Open Telekom Cloud can now use Akamai content delivery services which accelerate and optimize websites and cloud applications on desktops and mobile devices leveraging over 230,000 servers, which are spread in more than 130 countries in over 1,600 networks. As a result, Internet users connect to websites and applications through the most optimal server for them, which improves web-performance to meet their expectations for consistent and secure user experiences. This is especially crucial for cloud applications, which companies are using increasingly.

Bitnami is a software library containing around 150 apps including content management, eLearning, business intelligence and development tools. Users can use the launchpad to search the Open Telekom Cloud to find and launch their preferred apps. Bitnami configures the virtual machines in the background and users can start using their program within minutes. They only have to pay for the computing and storage capacity they actually use.

The new big data suite is targeted toward users that want to run big data analytics using MapReduce/Hadoop. The suite runs as software as a service. That means all users have to do is implement their analysis model, upload their data and then get the results. No software installation required.
