SysEleven certified for Sovereign Cloud Stack SCS

  • Central requirement of the German administration cloud strategy implemented
  • Customers keep free choice: SysEleven OpenStack Cloud, MetaKube, or SCS infrastructure can be chosen

Berlin, 14 May 2024 – Kubernetes and cloud infrastructure provider SysEleven is now certified for the Sovereign Cloud Stack (SCS). The company announced this at the second SCS Summit, which is taking place today in Berlin. The certification makes it much easier for SysEleven customers to migrate their workloads from other SCS-compliant cloud providers to SysEleven.

“Due to the focus on open-source-based, standards-compliant cloud technologies that was established years ago, achieving compatibility of SysEleven’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) with SCS did not require any changes to the core components,” explains Jens Plogsties, SysEleven’s CTO.

“With SCS certification, SysEleven is reinforcing its support for the German Administrative Cloud Strategy (DVS), with which public sector organizations want to achieve digital sovereignty,” says Norbert Müller, Managing Director of SysEleven and Vice President Cloud Solutions at secunet.
