T-Systems, Deutsche Telekom's business customer arm has launched its public cloud platform, Open Telekom Cloud in a data center in Singapore, expanding its coverage to Asia. 

Powered by Huawei FusionSphere, Open Telekom Cloud, the first large scale, multi-national OpenStack-based public cloud in Europe. It was launched by Deutsche Telekom and Huawei in March 2016, initially focusing on the European market, with the plan of going global in the future. 

Companies in the Asia-Pacific region (APAC) can now enjoy a German-standard cloud with low latency, said T-Systems. Analysts have been positive on Deutsche Telekom's expansion of the Open Telekom Cloud into Asia. 

The technological platform, based on OpenStack with open interfaces, enables fast and easy access and facilitates integration in the existing IT landscape. OpenStack also eases uses such as Lift and Shift between Singapore and Europe. Evidently, the Open Telekom Cloud's proximity to users in the APAC region will reduce latency times.  

T-Systems said it will gradually expand the range of Open Telekom Cloud features available in Singapore, entirely based on customers' needs.

Thanks to the Open Telekom Cloud, we can now offer the public cloud services, which have proven themselves in Europe, in the dynamic economies of the Asia-Pacific region. This is particularly attractive for Asian companies interested in the European market.
