Verizon to Add SAP HANA to Cloud Infrastructure

SAP intends to join Verizon Enterprise Cloud Ecosystem to provide SAP HANA platform across Verizon cloud offerings

Verizon Enterprise Solutions on Wednesday announced a memorandum of understanding with SAP that outlines plans to deploy the SAP HANA® platform in Verizon's data centers, making it available to customers across Verizon's cloud offerings, including eCloud, Managed Hosting and the new Verizon Cloud. SAP HANA is SAP's market-leading in-memory platform. This is the most recent enterprise-class service to be added to Verizon's cloud environment, as the company creates the enterprise cloud ecosystem.

Verizon brings the full power and functionality of enterprise-class technology to the cloud while providing clients flexibility and control over their cloud environment. The company is developing an ecosystem of enterprise technologies that are designed to run on Verizon's Infrastructure as a Service platform.

"Verizon is working with best-in-class technology companies to develop an ecosystem of enterprise-level, cloud-based services," said John Harrobin, chief marketing officer, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. "Providing SAP HANA is a natural evolution for us as we continue to deliver high-performing, secure and scalable cloud architecture to our clients."

SAP HANA is at the core of SAP's cloud vision and momentum, helping companies scale to new innovation and IT simplification levels. SAP HANA was introduced to the market two years ago and has since gained more than 3,000 customers.

"As cloud computing trends upward in our industry, our ecosystem will play an even more important role in our overall strategy and vision for offering a complete portfolio of cloud solutions," said Bob Grazioli, global head, Cloud Ecosystem, SAP.

Verizon Cloud, announced in October 2013 and currently in beta, provides clients with performance, flexibility and control in their cloud environment. Companies interested in learning more about Verizon's cloud infrastructure can visit the Verizon Enterprise Solutions website.
