Laying the foundation for SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud 

When you’re looking to build a new enterprise cloud, you need a strong foundation. And after 20 years of innovation partnership, SAP knew NetApp was the right infrastructure partner to support the launch of HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC). 

Together, we built HEC’s foundation with our trusted solutions: 

  • NetApp AFF, for speed, efficiency, and reliability
  • NetApp ONTAP, for seamless data management
  • Azure NetApp Files, for scalability and flexibility that accelerate customer paths to cloud readiness

If SAP trusts NetApp to lay the foundation for SAP cloud services, why wouldn’t you?
