Automated Cloud Management by T-Systems

T-Systems now offers the first comprehensive and scalable service for managing different cloud operating systems: the Managed Cloud Operating System (MCOS) manages different operating systems on customers’ multiple infrastructures simultaneously – whether conventional in-house operations, private cloud, hybrid cloud or public cloud. This includes the company's own Open Telekom Cloud, as well as Microsoft Azure and Amazons Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

The cloud has become a very complex entity. Many companies have spread their applications and data among different clouds. While this makes sense from a security perspective, it also brings significant disadvantages: increased complexity and greater effort for maintaining the cloud infrastructure. In response, T-Systems experts have developed MCOS to manage virtual servers, e.g. Microsoft Windows server and SUSE Linux Enterprise, with different operating systems, along with their regular updates and patches. Customers can utilize the solution in all their cloud infrastructures: Not just the Open Telekom Cloud and T-Systems’ private cloud offerings but also their Microsoft Azure and the Amazon cloud.

"As a cloud integrator, we have the expertise for managing different cloud platforms," says Francois Fleutiaux, Director of the IT Division at T-Systems. "With MCOS, we offer our customers an automated solution that lightens their workload in day-to-day operations, freeing up resources for strategic tasks."

MCOS standardizes the management of cloud environments independently of the technology employed by the respective cloud provider. As a result, users need less time and fewer resources to keep their various systems up to date. Freed from these rote tasks, the resources can be applied to enhancing the business applications and other, more useful tasks.
