SAP resources in the cloud on bare metal servers
Maybe you have been in this situation. Maybe you haven’t. But what would you do if your business started booming and you didn’t have the capacity to support your business needs? It could take you months to add more space to your current infrastructure or locate and secure a third-party data center. Then add in the time and staff it takes to configure hardware and set up networking. You get the point … it’s time consuming and expensive.
After a lot of hard work and maybe an all-nighter or two (or countless), we are so proud to announce that Bluemix infrastructure now offers customers the opportunity to move, manage, and run their SAP HANA and NetWeaver applications on Bluemix bare metal servers.
When you run out of space, when your work blows up, basically when you need it, it’s here. On demand. And that’s the great thing about running SAP applications in the cloud.
When you deploy SAP in the cloud, you don’t have to worry about running your own hardware. Our cloud experts staff the data centers and networks all day, every day of the year to ensure that our systems are in tip top shape.
Look we totally get it – IT budgets are tight. IT departments traditionally thought of as an expense are now factored into the revenue generating equation. By running your applications on bare metal servers, not only do you get to cut out or cut down on the expense of the day-to-day operational costs, but you get to save on cloud capacity planning. And what’s even more important to your bottom line, is that you are up and running your SAP applications in less time so your business can keep moving onwards and upwards.
Running SAP applications in the cloud benefits
- Quick Provisioning: With this offering, customers can now provision bare metal servers in as little as 2-4 hours.
- Pre-configured servers: Choose between small, medium, and large configurations including up to 2TB for SAP HANA workloads
- Performance: Bluemix provides you with a high performing solution for real-time mission critical business applications in the cloud including the benefits of taking advantage of our growing number of global data centers, highly available network, and robust and open API to manage your cloud environment.
The cloud is whatever you need it to be: Managed. Unmanaged. Hybrid.
Customers can still take advantage of IBM Cloud Managed Services for SAP, but now you have the ability to quickly deploy raw bare metal horsepower to run SAP applications. You get all the benefits you’ve come to love working with Bluemix IaaS with no long-term commitments and no CapEx.
So whether you want to take the reins, want to pass the overseeing to one of our experts, or just starting off, we’re here.
