T-Systems sets up Malaysian data center

T-Systems, the enterprise customer unit of Germany's Deutsche Telekom, will take over the infrastructure and information technology professionals of Royal Dutch Shell's global data centers, including one in Malaysia, local newspaper Bernama said.

In a statement, T-Systems said the other data centers included three in the Netherlands and one in the US.

The company said it will make Malaysia a center for service management and turn the local data center into its operational hub for the Asia-Pacific region.

'Winning this contract clearly demonstrates the intimate understanding of its customer's needs and requirements T-Systems has and that we have the skills and the infrastructure to deliver the most demanding services,' said Thomas Jakob, CEO of T-Systems Singapore and Malaysia.
