The Challenge

The digital era continually offers fresh opportunities for IT providers, while at the same time requiring companies in this sector to plan big, move fast, and be innovative. With its sights set on becoming the top Central European provider of IT infrastructure and data center services, Cloud4com is always on the lookout for any opportunities that could turn its vision into reality.

A year after its establishment, Cloud4com chose to provide hosted infrastructure solutions for customers running SAP applications, and successfully deployed a cloud platform for this purpose. Following the introduction of the SAP HANA in-memory database, and in the light of SAP’s decision to end support for all other databases from 2025 onwards, Cloud4com saw a golden opportunity to bring the benefits of its services to a larger set of customers.

The Customer
About The Customer

Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic, Cloud4com provides its customers with IT infrastructure and data center services. Cloud4com works with customers of all sizes and across different industries—including online retailers, consulting firms, and government institutions—and boasts partnerships with many of the leading global vendors, including Cisco Systems, Intel, VMware, Microsoft, and SAP.

The company’s goal is to become the leading Central European provider of virtual data centers, focusing on high quality and security. Similarly, Cloud4com has a true commitment to actively supporting its customers in boosting the productivity and efficiency of their businesses through the provision of world-class IT platforms.

The Solution

As the leading platform for SAP applications on Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications immediately stood out as the ideal choice to complete Cloud4com’s new cloud-hosted offering for SAP HANA. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications offers rapid deployment and optimized performance, and its installation wizard fully automates SAP HANA, SAP S/4HANA, and SAP NetWeaver installation, configuration, and tuning.

Furthermore, the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server includes the SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension—which enables the replication of SAP HANA environments within the same data center or across two data centers to boost resilience and protect against unscheduled downtime.

Once all the specs of the new infrastructure were defined, Cloud4com teamed up with long-term partner Sabris to prepare a compelling proposal that would cover both the technical and the business features and advantages of the new offering.
