T-Systems South Africa and Huawei have announced that they will be bringing Open Telekom Cloud (OTC) to local shores, delivering a simple, secure and affordable Open Stack Public Cloud platform that will deliver on-demand, pay as you go cloud services to enterprises in the country.

With the advent of industry 4.0 and the digitalisation of organisations, OTC will bring the best of global cloud innovation to South Africa and will enable South African organisations to operate and compete on a global scale, said Huawei.

This partnership, which will see T-Systems adding a new, transformational public cloud offering to its existing portfolio, was officially announced on the 20th April 2017, at the Huawei Eco Connect conference held at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg.

This extended partnership with Huawei, allows us to bring a new level of innovation to the local market. As a multi cloud provider, we have already been delivering high levels of service quality and price compatibility from our current local Datacentres; OTC will enhance our cloud portfolio and allow us to offer hyper scale computing capabilities on the open stack platform that can rival other global cloud offerings.
