Secure digitization: SAP solutions from the Open Telekom Cloud
Digitization, the Internet of Things, and Industry 4.0 are hugely influential factors. If companies are to benefit quickly from their investments in the digital revolution, a clever cloud mix is needed. This means multi-functional solutions which can manage the interaction and coordination of these varied requirements on a cloud-based platform. Cloud computing results in demonstrable IT innovations: when ERP software becomes cloud-capable, it becomes more flexible and transparent, too. With products such as SAP HANA and S4/HANA, SAP is clearly a pioneer in this new digital era.
In view of this fact, companies face a number of challenges. Existing SAP systems require a transformation strategy, while new cloud-based solutions need to become an established part of IT quickly. When it comes to their SAP environment, the majority of companies are therefore pursuing hybrid and multi-cloud strategies in order to cope with these extremely dynamic changes.
Fully functional SAP appliances from the public cloud
Companies do not need to put all their eggs in one basket. Instead, they can use infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions to explore the possibilities step by step and without having to make significant investments. With SAP® Solutions on Open Telekom Cloud, SAP systems can be selected as necessary using a configurator (one-stop shop). The cloud is paid for at the push of a button and only the services that are actually used are billed (pay-as-you-go model).
Systems are integrated into the existing SAP landscape via VPN or MPLS – with the familiar operational quality of the Deutsche Telekom public cloud, with a high level of data security and in accordance with German data privacy standards.
All applications are available as fully functional appliances – complete setups instead of individual modules. The pre-defined services are provided on the Open Telekom Cloud’s high-performance IaaS system. With the latest server technology – Intel® Xeon® E7 processors, 18 core per CPU, currently up to 1 TB virtual machines – allowing optimum use of SAP HANA, with SSD storage as well as SAP-certified hardware and hypervisor.
The pay-as-you-go model guarantees maximum scalability. In next to no time, SAP applications can be used flexibly whenever they are needed. Performance can be ramped up rapidly, SAP systems tested, a project set up, training sessions started, or SAP HANA and the latest S/4HANA software trialed – the perfect solution for meeting short-term requirements. The user can use the latest SAP software for hours, days, or any other period of time. The service is always billed according to monthly use.
Configurable one-stop-shop solution
Only SAP® Solutions on Open Telekom Cloud offer infrastructure and applications from a single source. The user can choose between a managed service and, in the future, a self-managed service too.
In short: SAP® Solutions on Open Telekom Cloud are the ideal way in for secure SAP applications from the public cloud. With the latest technology, maximum flexibility and scalability, and without any risk. In the future, only those who can digitize value creation seamlessly and make processes more flexible will be able to achieve business success.
