NetApp and SAP have worked together for more than 20 years to give you some of the industry’s most advanced and reliable data management solutions. Today, there’s an important new chapter in this story: SAP customers migrating to the cloud to generate growth, innovation, and better user experiences.
SAP’s partnerships play a big role in helping you make the most of your cloud options—and there's no better example than NetApp’s partnership with SAP and Google Cloud. If you’re an SAP customer, NetApp® technology on Google Cloud gives you three additional advantages:
Google Cloud stands out with some of the industry’s most powerful artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) capabilities and real-time analytics tools—such as live migration for superior system uptime and reliability—and its investment in the world’s most extensive private network infrastructure. It all adds up to make Google Cloud’s infrastructure resilient, and scalable enough to run business-critical SAP workloads where unplanned downtime isn’t an option.
The integration of NetApp technology as a native Google Cloud service creates a significant advantage, but there are others. Google Cloud with NetApp cloud data services can truly transform how SAP customers view data management. SAP components are inherently highly networked, and the underlying data and storage architecture is powerful but also very demanding. NetApp technology is engineered specifically to protect the integrity, availability, and performance of these SAP environments across even the biggest and most complex Google Cloud implementations.
NetApp's enterprise data management capabilities are also integrated and managed as a fully supported and native Google Cloud storage service. This allows SAP customers to move more quickly, cuts data management overhead, and puts another layer of protection around critical data sources. The following are some unique capabilities NetApp brings to Google, the only high-availability multi-protocol file service in GCP that delivers:
If you’re an SAP customer, you know that your future depends on a successful cloud migration. Now, the partnership between NetApp, Google Cloud, and SAP is giving you a new choice for achieving that goal. And more SAP customers are discovering just what’s possible when they take advantage of NetApp solutions on Google Cloud.
