T-Systems has established a new private cloud region in Southern Europe. The new infrastructure, based in Barcelona, is made up of two data centers that work together as one. The mission-critical, TIER III-certified data centers are in Sant Boi and Cerdanyola del Vallès.

Developing a Robust and High-Quality Technology Infrastructure

The new region expands T-Systems' private cloud platform, Future Cloud Infrastructure (FCI). The FCI's global footprint already includes data centers in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, and the United States. The FCI connects legacy, on-premises systems with the cloud. The system enables businesses to run their services from a single hybrid cloud, increasing flexibility and lowering costs. The FCI includes built-in security and data protection measures.

From this new cloud region, the company currently provides services to various public organizations that serve over 20 million citizens in Spain, as well as hundreds of factories in critical industries such as automotive, food, and construction.

T-Systems has also signed the European pact for climate-neutral data centers and has made investments to improve its data centers' energy efficiency and use of renewable energy.

Osmar Polo, Managing Director, T-Systems Iberia, said, "This region positions us as a key player within the group for the development of cloud services and consolidates our position as one of the leading providers in Spain."

Ferri Abolhassan, CEO, T-Systems; Board Member, Deutsche Telekom, also shared, "This new cloud region is a sign of T-Systems' strong commitment to developing a robust and high-quality technology infrastructure that will support digitalization and the European data economy for years to come."

Expansion Advantages

The expansion of T-Systems' private cloud footprint, particularly with the establishment of a new region in Southern Europe, offers several advantages. Firstly, by setting up a private cloud region in Barcelona, T-Systems enhances its geographical coverage and presence in Southern Europe, catering to the growing demand for cloud services in the region.

Additionally, having two data centers that operate as a unified infrastructure in Barcelona ensures redundancy and high availability of services. This redundancy reduces the risk of downtime due to hardware failures or other disruptions, thereby enhancing the reliability of T-Systems' private cloud offerings.

Moreover, the establishment of a new private cloud region in Southern Europe allows T-Systems to comply with local data residency and sovereignty requirements. This is particularly important for organizations in industries with strict data regulations, such as finance, healthcare, and government, as they can now store and process sensitive data within the region, ensuring compliance with local laws and regulations.

Furthermore, the expansion of T-Systems' private cloud footprint enables organizations in Southern Europe to leverage advanced cloud technologies and services offered by T-Systems, such as scalable computing resources, advanced security features, and managed services. This empowers businesses in the region to innovate, scale, and compete more effectively in the digital economy.
