Server manufacturer Thomas-Krenn concludes cloud partnership with gridscale

Cologne, Germany, August 12, 2021 – The strategic partnership with the Cologne-based cloud technology provider gridscale opens up new arbitrarily scalable IaaS and PaaS services for the server manufacturer Thomas-Krenn.AG.

Launching the „Thomas Krenn Cloud“, users will enjoy a virtual data centre that enables cloud service configurations to improve IT operations drastically. In addition to compute, storage and network resources, customers also benefit from extensive PaaS and database services as well as turnkey cloud applications. Using a pay-per-use principle, users will experience a transparent real-time billing process, exact to the minute.

“With its combined portfolio of high-quality hardware and virtual servers, Thomas-Krenn enables flexibility and individuality in IT operations,” Henrik Hasenkamp, CEO of gridscale, states, pleased about the new cooperation. “Tackling hybrid scenarios and the intelligent linking of local on-premise IT with highly dynamic cloud services, we see our collaboration pioneering in the German market.”

Fast access, simple handling
The Thomas Krenn Cloud provides straightforward management of all resources. Every function can be controlled and fully automated via an intuitive web interface or the RESTful API. The virtual servers are located in multiple certified German high-security data centres or, depending on customer requests, at various locations in Austria and Switzerland, ensuring reliability and failure security.

“Especially our medium-sized customers benefit from great cost reductions and IT operation advantages thanks to simple and custom-fit configurations of their IT infrastructure”, adds Christoph Maier, CEO of Thomas-Krenn AG. “Together with gridscale, we will successively expand our cloud portfolio and continuously provide new cloud services. This allows us to create an integrated end-to-end offer and to ultimately strengthen our core competence also in the server sector.”

Cloud offering already up and running
Companies can already book and utilise the Thomas Krenn Cloud. While gridscale experts carry out administration, maintenance and further development of the platform, Thomas-Krenn AG focuses on the technical consulting of its customers and the marketing of the new cloud offer.
