T-Labs Virtual Project Infrastructure (TVPI)
The T-Labs Virtual Project Infrastructure (TVPI) project is a cooperation between the CIT and the Telekom Laboratories (T-Labs)  at TU-Berlin. It aims at implementing and running a cloud-based IT infrastructure that supports upcoming software development projects inside T-Labs. For these projects that used to require their very own, individual IT setups, the TVPI project offers basic infrastructure components such as virtualized yet desktop-like software development systems for programmers or ready-to-use access to standard development tools such as ticket systems, wikis or source code repositories. It is the goal of this project to improve the service quality in terms of scalability and setup time compared to regular, non cloud-based solutions catering to the infrastructure needs of upcoming software development projects.
