Additional Services

Beyond the mentioned services Open Telekom Cloud provides additional platform and management services like several databases, tools for AI development, big data analytics, security, network services etc.

Open Telekom Cloud features a rich set of database services

The basic Relational Database Service (RDS) supports MySQL, PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Server. From the RDS console users can perform almost all necessary tasks – no programming required. Additionally, Open Telekom Cloud provides other types of databases beyond relational: Distributed Cache Service (DCS) allows the usage of Redis, a NoSQL database. With Document Database Service (DDS) another NoSQL document database based on MungoDB is available.

GaussDB (for MySQL) is the latest generation of enterprise-class distributed databases. It is fully compatible with MySQL and provides high scalability and massive storage capacity. It uses a decoupled compute and storage architecture and supports up to 128 TB of storage. With GaussDB (for MySQL), there is no need to deal with sharding, and no need to worry about data loss. It combines the performance and availability of commercial databases with the cost-effectiveness of open-source databases. Beyond the rich set of different databases, Data Replication Service offers a stable, efficient, and easy-to-use service for database online migration and synchronization. It simplifies data migration processes and reduces migration costs. DRS quickly transmits data between databases in various scenarios.

Choice of analytics and data management services

The MapReduce Service (MRS) in the Open Telekom Cloud generates complete clusters with separate functions for saving and processing data. All cluster management functions are triggered via a REST API or using the console (creation, configuration, expansion, scaling down, scanning). These can be integrated or work separately depending on the chosen scenario. When using the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), simultaneous saving and processing is possible. MRS offers the analysis and data management tools HBase, Hive, Spark, Hadoop and Loader. Zookeeper is a further component of the suite. In addition, MRS supports the streaming services Kafka, Storm, CarbonData and Flume. The service is billed on an hourly basis (VMs including licenses for software images) plus the costs for data storage.

With the Data Ingestion Service (DIS), the Open Telekom Cloud offers a module from the MapReduce suite as a standalone service. The DIS ensures that large quantities of data are available in the Open Telekom Cloud in a very short time. Based on Kafka, HBase and Redis, the service offers users the freedom to use the most suitable tool for analysis and allows the streams to be designed using the console.

Cloud Search Service (CSS) is a fully managed, scalable search service that enables users to deploy and run Elasticsearch and Kibana in a matter of minutes. Fully compatible with Elasticsearch APIs, the CSS allows to build a centralized, observable platform to quickly find root causes, improve application performance, and provide users with a powerful search experience.

DataArts Studio (DARTS) is a one-stop data operations platform that drives digital transformation. It allows to integrate and develop data, design data standards, control of data quality, to manage data assets, to create data services, and to ensure data security.

Data Lake Insight (DLI) is a serverless big data query and analysis service. DLI supports standard SQL and is compatible with Spark and Flink SQL. It also supports multiple access modes and is compatible with mainstream data formats. DLI supports SQL statements and Spark applications for heterogeneous data sources, including CloudTable, RDSDWSCSSOBS, custom databases on ECSs, and offline databases.

These services are accustomed by a Data Warehouse Service (DWS) to consolidate datafrom different sources. In the data warehouse, the data from the various source databases is consolidated in a standard format and data model, making it possible to analyze data from different sources.The data sources can be located anywhere. DWS supports MapReduce clusters and can use HDFS data. Data is imported from object storage at high speed, and encrypted data transfer is also possible. Furthermore, the cluster supports internal DNS addresses, Java UDF and roles issued in IAM. Time zones can also be configured.

MapReduce Service, a comprehensive development platform for artificial intelligence

The importance of the cloud for development and the operation of services using artificial intelligence (AI) is growing continuously. Therefore, many cloud operators are making the switch to providing entire customized development environments as AI PaaS. These AI suites comprise everything an AI developer needs to generate their own models. With ModelArts, the Open Telekom Cloud offers a modern, easy-to-use and end-to-end development platform for AI that allows models to be trained and provided.
