Deutsche Telekom has launched a range of cloud-based IT services for enterprises as the operator looks to compete with Amazon and Google.

The new DSI Intercloud platform provides infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings such as computing, storage and networking via a pay-as-you-go model.

DT said they are available without minimum purchase requirements and contract periods, starting from €0.05 per hour.

Additional storage is available from €0.02 per gigabyte.

Data security firm Covata, which participated in a pilot test of the platform, will be the first customer to use the new services, DT revealed.

DSI Intercloud is based on a new public cloud that the operator has built using Cisco tech.

DT first announced it was working with the US-based vendor’s Intercloud platform – Cisco’s attempt to build the world’s largest cloud network – back in 2014.

T-Systems, DT’s enterprise arm, will manage the new service from its data centres in Germany.

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings are slated to follow in the first half of 2016.

“Cisco and Telekom will focus on delivering the necessary high availability and scalability for real-time analytics at the edge of the network to make Telekom’s cloud the foundation for innovative IoT experiences,” a statement read.

DT is already working with Huawei to offer public cloud services in China.

The operator aims to double the revenue it gets from cloud services by end of 2018.

T-Systems saw sales increase 2.3 percent in the third quarter, partly due to growth in cloud services.
