T-Mobile Czech Republic has won a deal to provide a hybrid cloud services to Switzerland-based cosmetics firm Oriflame.

The Deutsche Telekom subsidiary will deploy and operate Oriflame’s internal IT systems and infrastructure in the cloud.

It will also provide a platform for both physical and virtual servers for more than 50 local websites.

All of Oriflame’s 350 virtual servers will be migrated to the T-Mobile Czech hybrid cloud and nine racks to its data centre.

Oriflame, which has annual sales of around €1.3 billion, offers cosmetic products through sales consultants and via its e-shop.

In addition to 7,000 employees, the company has three million independent consultants.

Richard Hamrik, Managing Director IT Centre of Excellence for Oriflame said: “[This deal] enables us to flexibly react to market demands in any part of the world and improve our customer services.”

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Dr Elias Drakopoulos, Senior Vice President for B2B Europe at Deutsche Telekom, noted that the operator’s 2013 acquisition of GTS Central Europe was key to winning the contract.

DT saw revenues at its Czech subsidiary fall 1.3 percent year-on-year in the first three months of the year.

In March, DT launched a public cloud service that it hopes will take the fight to Amazon and Google in Europe.

The same month, it won a deal to provide public cloud services to the European Organisation for Nuclear Research.

Gartner has forecast that the public cloud services market will grow 16.5 percent this year.
