The Challenge

In 2013, before the launch of its managed cloud offering, HANA Enterprise Cloud, SAP was looking for the right infrastructure partner to support the performance, flexibility, and reliability requirements of its own customers

SAP knew it could rely on NetApp to deliver the significant improvements in processing speed, product time to market, and security that SAP customers were expecting.

The Customer
About The Customer

SAP SE is a German multinational software company based in Walldorf, Baden-Württemberg. It develops enterprise software to manage business operations and customer relations. The company is the world's leading enterprise resource planning software vendor.

The Solution

As a longtime NetApp customer, SAP also had experience with NetApp AFF arrays and NetApp ONTAP data management software. SAP was confident that these products would deliver the speed, efficiency, and reliability that would allow HANA Enterprise Cloud to be the preeminent infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution.

In addition, SAP is using Azure NetApp Files to make migration fast and easy and to run applications seamlessly across the cloud and on-premises. Most important, SAP customers don’t need to purchase or manage extra storage infrastructure, effectively streamlining their cloud adoption.
