Deutsche Telekom’s new public cloud service has won a contract with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), while the operator has launched two new security services.

DT said CERN wants to see if physics data processing can be outsourced to a commercial cloud provider.

The particle physics-focused body will test the performance of 1,000 simultaneous virtual machines and associated cluster storage of more than 500 Terabytes over a three-month period.

DT officially launched Open Telekom Cloud earlier this week as it looks to take the fight for public could services in Europe to Amazon and Google.

Meanwhile, the operator’s new Security unit has unveiled two new products for the enterprise market.

Internet Protect Pro, which the operator has developed in partnership with US manufacturer Zscaler, is being marketed as offering “complete protection” for SMEs and large enterprises.

For example, it claims to block malware execution, cyber attacks and data theft in real time.

DT is hosting the solution in its own cloud, which it said meant companies would require less local hardware as well as less IT administration and configuration.

Enterprises can begin testing the service in Q2 this year with full commercial availability due in the third quarter.

The operator also unveiled a mobile equivalent that continuously monitors threats and attacks on individual devices and those that use devices as a proxy to attack company infrastructure.

Developed in partnership with Zimperium, Mobile Protect Pro comes as an app and features machine-learning algorithms.

DT said it the first time it had offered a solution for devices running iOS.

Pilot customers will test the service next month with a commercial launch set for the summer.

In February, the company outlined plans for Telekom Security, which will come into being next month.
