Terremark offers hosting services for SAP applications

Cloud computing platform to provision servers from a pre-allocated pool of computing resources

By CBR Staff Writer

Terremark Worldwide said that it will offer hosing services for SAP applications on its cloud computing platform.

The company claims that, with the new Enterprise Cloud infrastructure, it will be able to leverage its data centres with access to diverse network connectivity to provide customers a new model for hosting their SAP applications in a live production environment.

The Enterprise Cloud, powered by VMware virtualisation platform, allows customers to provision servers for their SAP applications from a pre-allocated pool of computing resources. The Enterprise Cloud also provides a “burst mode” that allows clients to access additional computing power as needed.

Michael Ressemann, global head of BPO Solution Delivery and Partner Enablement at SAP, said: “Terremark’s hosting services will offer several benefits to both small and large SAP customers. Our partnership with Terremark will provide customers the ability to experience significant cost savings, while not having to sacrifice the reliability of their hosted SAP applications.

According to Terremark, at the centre of its Enterprise Cloud there is a web application that allows customers to configure and provision servers, grouped and organised according to role, and extend their available resources according to utilisation. A variety of preconfigured server roles are available across Microsoft Windows, Linux and Sun Solaris operating systems.

The company said that customers can also access its managed security services, which protect business-critical applications running in customer environments with security measures, including vulnerability assessments, log aggregation and event correlation, network session flow analysis, attack replay, and application firewall management.

Dan Chu, vice president of emerging products and markets at VMware, said: “Supporting an SAP solution landscape that anticipates peak demand can require significant compute resources, which may be underutilised during normal load periods.

“So we’re excited that Terremark, a VMware vCloud partner, is working with SAP to provide our joint customers cost-effective, secure on-demand access to SAP solutions, leveraging technology that dynamically expands computing power only as needed. This collaboration allows customers to reduce total cost of ownership and to shift their focus toward business innovation and driving faster solutions to their business problems, instead of managing infrastructures.”
