In an industry disrupting partnership, T-Systems South Africa and Huawei have announced they will be bringing Open Telekom Cloud (OTC) to local shores. OTC is a simple, secure and affordable open stack public cloud platform that will deliver on-demand, pay-as-you-go cloud services to enterprises.
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.
Says Gert Schoonbee, Managing Director of T-Systems South Africa: "T-Systems is an established South African brand with local shareholding, which has been in the country for nearly 20 years; we pride ourselves on being in South Africa for South Africa. 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 data centres; 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. Given that we are deploying OTC locally in South Africa, we will be retaining the revenue in the country. Moreover, it enables us to fully comply with the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI). In all, we are ecstatic about this as it brings simplicity, security and affordability to our customers."[Full Story.]
