Back in October 2014, I attended the SAP TechEd && d-code conference in Las Vegas, where SAP boldly talked about the “next steps to deliver innovation in the cloud with the SAP HANA platform” so that customers can truly innovate and simplify their business and development process, and SAP reaffirmed that running SAP HANA in TDI mode continues to gain momentum everywhere as lots of customers are wanting to hear.
During SAP TechEd && d-code Las Vegas, EMC Global Solutions Marketing launched the EMC Hybrid Cloud for SAP Technical Demo Video to supplement the white paper released at VMworld in San Francisco in August (check out my blog post from that event). This 8-minutes video explains in simple terms how the EMC Hybrid Cloud for SAP (EHC for SAP for short) can be the bridge to the future to enable IT transformation while helping customers redefine simplicity, choice, & agility in deploying SAP landscapes in either on-premises cloud, off-premises cloud, or both.
When people discuss and debate the merits of implementing virtualized SAP environment, in the cloud so to speak, the conversation is often centered around the ease and simplicity of provisioning, for example, a new SAP sandbox or test environment can be stood up in minutes instead of weeks. But running SAP in the cloud, regardless of it is on-premises, off-premises, or both in a hybrid cloud fashion, provide benefits that go far beyond provisioning! In fact, the powerful capabilities offered in the areas of monitoring, workload relocation, and multi-tenancy chargeback will soon be the more interesting points to consider and understand!
