Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm has launched an automated service for managing multiple cloud environments.

T-Systems’ new Managed Cloud Operating System (MCOS) aims to free up customers’ time and resources by standardising the monitoring and maintenance of cloud servers from different vendors in one platform.

MCOS also claims to handle security patches and updates to protect the systems from cyber threats.

The solution is designed to work with all cloud environments, including private and hybrid as well as public clouds from the likes of Amazon and Microsoft.

T-Systems will support customers with an international service desk and claims the solution offers 99.7 percent availability.

Francois Fleutiaux, Director of the IT Division at T-Systems, said: "As a cloud integrator, we have the expertise for managing different cloud platforms.

“With MCOS, we offer our customers an automated solution that lightens their workload in day-to-day operations, freeing up resources for strategic tasks."

T-Systems launched its own public cloud offering in 2016, based on Openstack architecture, with the aim of disrupting major cloud players Amazon, Google and Microsoft.

The service was extended to Asia-Pacific in August.

Revenues at T-Systems rose two percent to €1.7 billion in Q3 as sales of the likes of cloud and security offset declines in IT services.
