Business needs and requirements change frequently and on short notice, forcing IT to become flexible enough to expand and contract IT and application services at a moment's notice. Small applications might need to grow quickly, while others need to scale down. In this environment of IT uncertainty, some things remain constant. Lowering total cost of ownership (TCO) and accelerating time to market remain business imperatives. Therefore, companies are looking for flexible and efficient IT delivery environments, powered by industry leaders, to meet business requirements and propel their organizations to the next stage of growth.

"SAP is recognized worldwide for innovation and providing collaborative business solutions that help our customers compete and adapt to their fast-changing business needs," said Rob Enslin, president of SAP Global Customer Operations and member of Global Managing Board, SAP AG. "Expanding our partnership with NetApp provides our customers with increased scalability and data protection, while at the same time allowing for greater management of data growth and adaptability to our customers' changing on-demand needs."

Results of Deepened SAP and NetApp Strategic PartnershipWith the explosive growth of all types of data, SAP HANA is enabling customers to analyze big data and make decisions in real time. It is spurring productivity and new innovations, including the Cisco UCS with NetApp Storage solution for SAP HANA, which combines the innovative Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) with NetApp unified storage systems. This solution delivers unprecedented scalability, simplified management, and extremely high system availability.

Fujitsu and NetApp have collaborated for more than a decade, and the relationship has resulted in the delivery of cutting-edge appliances for SAP HANA and converged infrastructure solutions such as FlexFrame Orchestrator for SAP HANA as well as traditional SAP application workloads. The solutions can provide increased service level agreements and flexibility at reduced cost.
