Cloud Options for Your Mission Critical SAP Workloads powered by HPE GreenLake

Guest bloggers:  Marlies Ludwig and Uschi Becker-Haug 

You have probably all heard of HPE GreenLake. This as-a-Service offer revolutionized the marketplace by providing enterprises the agility and simplicity of the Cloud, plus the flexibility and control of a hybrid model or on-premise deployment. Especially for Mission-Critical applications like SAP Workloads this meets customer articulated preferences.

In a nutshell - HPE offers the SAP cloud that comes to you. 

We’ll be discussing these capabilities in depth during the sessions we’ll be holding at this week’s two SAPInsider events. You’ll find complete information on the sessions and events at the end of this blog.

The need for a choice

Public cloud is a game-changer. However, it is definitely not the perfect fit for every enterprise or every workload. According to research from IDC, organizations state that 70 percent of applications remain outside of the public cloud. There are several factors for this, including application entanglement, data gravity and sovereignty, security and compliance concerns, and the unpredictable and high costs of the public cloud. 

SAP workloads, who are highly mission-critical, can strongly benefit from a hybrid cloud approach. There, HPE GreenLake can fully unfold its strength and value towards customers. 

A variety of great choices

You can gain superior performance and agility by running your mission-critical workloads on some of the biggest and fastest SAP-certified infrastructure available today, all in a pay-per-use model with HPE GreenLake for SAP HANA. Your enterprise benefits from: 

  • SAP-certified hardware, operating system, and services
  • Choice of configurations, appliance or TDI
  • Design, implementation, and operational services from HPE Pointnext Services
  • Pay-per-use flexibility to handle enterprise scale 

By adding HPE GreenLake Management Services, HPE can enhance the experience, providing a true managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering (up to the SAP Database or Basis Layer, if required). 

HPE Pointnext Services can help you transform your existing SAP landscape into a state-of-the-art S/4 implementation. 

The recently-introduced SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud Customer Edition® powered by HPE GreenLake extends these capabilities and benefits, delivering a fully managed service in your own data center, a colocation facility of your choice, or at the edge. You will be able to keep your SAP® landscape and data on-premises while gaining the benefits of a subscription-based, agile, elastic, and consistent cloud experience from SAP powered by HPE GreenLake.

A number of HPE SAP S/4HANA deployment alternatives is also available via Strategic Managed Service Providers, System Integrators, and global and local Cloud Service Providers. 

Customer benefits:  

HPE GreenLake’s as-a-Service approach has proven its ability to deliver significant savings by making it possible for you to provision for the capacity you need, but pay only for what you actually use. It has also demonstrated its ability to deliver:   

  • 30% CAPEX savings due to eliminated need for overprovisioning
  • 65% shorter time to deploy digital projects
  • 44% less time spent “keeping the lights on”
  • 40% increased IT team productivity by reducing the support load on IT 

An excellent choice in action: the Danfoss customer testimonial

Danfoss, a multinational corporation in Denmark, wanted to advance at the speed of ideas, while also simplifying an IT environment which had grown to 19 different landscapes due to mergers and acquisitions over the years.  

Working closely with HPE and SAP, Danfoss identified the best approach for their digital transformation journey. It included an SAP S/4HANA greenfield implementation, a restructuring of the data center, and a focus on predictability, flexibility and scalability.
