Deutsche Telekom leverages CTERA’s cloud services

The selection of CTERA was in part due to being able to securely store data in Germany based data centres.

By James Nunns

CTERA Networks and Deutsche Telekom have launched a new cloud-based data backup and storage offering that will be powered by CTERA’s enterprise data services platform.

As part of the agreement, Deutsche Telekom will leverage the complete range of CTERA solutions in order to provide enterprise customers with cloud-based data services such as managed backup, file sync and share, collaboration and managed hybrid storage for ROBO offices.

Legal compliance and security scrutiny for cloud storage services is a high priority in Germany and in order to meet strict requirements, Deutsche Telekom will store all of its data in Germany-based data centres. These will leverage the cloud storage platform EMC Atmos.

The, "Managed Backup to the Cloud" service will offer customers a solution for PC and office-server data protection that will be available in both public or private cloud models.

Reasons for the selection of the CTERA platform include the company’s ability to provide a unified and centrally-managed solution for file sync, backup and ROBO storage gateways.

Beate Lange, regional sales director DACH, CTERA Networks, said: "CTERA identified, early on, the acute need for private, sovereign services within Germany and is committed to enabling customer compliance through the investments we’re making in the German market."

"We are very proud to announce this partnership with Deutsche Telekom today and to be the technology behind one of the world’s leading business cloud services offerings."

The services will also be available with cross-platform support and will be able to run entirely from Deutsche Telekom’s Germany based data centres.

Ingo Marten, vice president marketing grosskunden, marketing business clients at Deutsche Telekom, said: "Cloud backup and data storage is gaining momentum in Germany due to productivity, administrative and cost savings."

"However, companies have been reluctant to adopt offshore services that compromise the sovereignty of data that originates in Germany."

"Our Managed Backup to the Cloud offering provides enterprise customers with the best of both worlds: high-quality data protection that is simple for users to adopt and security and data privacy that meets the compliance needs of our Germany enterprise customers."
