HPE GreenLake Cloud Services SVP and GM Keith White talks about the new “SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, customer edition” delivered with HPE GreenLake and how it will help customers leverage cloud capabilities while keeping their SAP landscape on-premises and provide a consistent cloud experience everywhere

In my previous post, I promised to share our insights on how companies are accelerating the modernization and transformation of their businesses, as well as to highlight news that continues to show how HPE is becoming an as-a-service company, including our capabilities to deliver the cloud experience everywhere.

I am happy to share that HPE and SAP today announced plans to partner to deliver SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, customer edition with HPE GreenLake, as a fully managed service at the edge, in the customer’s data center, or in a colocation facility. The new customer edition of SAP HANA® Enterprise Cloud delivered with HPE GreenLake will help customers leverage cloud capabilities while keeping their SAP landscape on-premises, facilitating the move to SAP S/4 HANA, and their transition to becoming an intelligent enterprise.

We know that many organizations, HPE included, depend on SAP for vital systems that run the business. I hear from many customers who prefer to keep their applications and data on premises in a private cloud environment. We also know that bringing large datasets to the cloud can be expensive and may raise compliance and security concerns, especially for public sector and regulated customers.

The new SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, customer edition features an optimized architecture comprised of secure, high-performing infrastructure, including compute, storage and networking technologies that are certified and pre-configured for SAP software. HPE GreenLake has been proven in verifiable SAP benchmarks to have the ability to scale to substantial workload demands from SAP customers.

When the customer edition of SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is delivered with HPE GreenLake, HPE will supply, install and manage the infrastructure, while SAP will deliver the white-glove operations and application management services from the operating system through the SAP HANA database, including the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud catalogue of applications such as SAP S/4HANA and SAP BW/4HANA.

This is a tremendous opportunity to build on the extensive, proven partnership that HPE and SAP have developed over the years, to uniquely provide our joint customers with the flexibility to run SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, customer edition in their own data centers.

HPE and SAP are helping deliver outcomes for customers which provide the benefits of targeted solutions that allow customers to benefit from the agility and flexibility of the cloud while also offering the data sovereignty, compliance, visibility, and cost controls of an on-premises deployment.

We believe now more than ever, enterprise customers need to move faster and adapt quickly to change. HPE GreenLake brings the cloud experience to apps and data everywhere, enabling customers to adopt transformative technology faster and simplify operations. HPE GreenLake delivers public cloud services and infrastructure as-a-service for workloads – on premises, fully managed in a pay-per-use model at the edge, in colocations, and in data centers. We are delivering a managed service experience for customers who want to focus on innovation.

That brings me to the next edition of Bringing the Cloud to You! Speaking about customers focused on innovation, I’ll talk with Tanja Vainio, Managing Director of ABB’s Robotics and Automation business for their Automotive Tier 1 line. We will discuss how HPE and ABB are working together to define the Factory of the Future and help increase efficiency and profitability of our joint customers.
