Deutsche Telekom’s T-Systems Kills Off 9 Out Of 10 Of Its Data Centre Assets
Deutsche Telekom’s IT service provider has drastically reduced the number of its data centres around the globe getting rid of around 85% of its facilities and reducing the total number from 89 to 13.
With such a major downsize in the last six years, T-Systems reported that the company is saving an annual three-digit million euro sum.
“We are particularly proud of the fact that we were able to implement the transformation without any loss of quality in customer operations,” said Jörn Kellermann, responsible for IT production at T-Systems.
The company insists that despite the reduction in the number of data centres they now have, its ability to offer computing power has increased by 25%. The transformation comprised a total of 5,200 migration projects with around 23,600 compute servers, with 60% of them in Germany.
“Our data centres are highly scalable and automated. The infrastructure is consistently geared to the cloud,” added Kellermann.
The company also mentioned that it “relies throughout on so-called twin data centres”, which always mirror the processed data for more security, adding that the environment also benefits as CO2 emissions for computer centre operations have dropped by 56%.
Data Economy reached out to T-Systems to find out whether the company is consolidating into its own facilities or outsourcing, to which they said they are unable to go into the details for security reasons.
Back in 2016, T-Systems announced the opening of a data centre facility in Hayes, West London, to twin with its existing data centre in Slough, England.
Even more recently, the pan-European IT services subsdiary of Deutsche Telekom, has unveiled the completed the expansion of its data centre in Biere, near Magdeburg in Germany with the direct aim of increasing cloud capacities at the site by 150% according to the company itself.
To add to that, the expansion of the data centre was said to effectively increase capacity by 45,000 servers by 2018.
