Deutsche Bahn Migrates Its Entire IT to the Cloud

Deutsche Bahn has now migrated its entire IT to the cloud, completing one of its biggest IT projects two years ahead of schedule.

The company decided in 2016 to fundamentally restructure its IT. Around 450 applications have since been moved to the cloud. DB sees the advantage of this in the increased level of flexibility: computing power and storage capacity automatically adapt to demand in real time. This makes all of DB’s systems run more reliably, even when put under extreme pressure, such as timetable information during a storm.

Now that this migration is complete, Deutsche Bahn has closed its in-house data centre.
