Red Hat, SAP and IBM join to bring SAP managed services on-premises

By

Enterprise Linux vendor, Red Hat, has announced a partnership with SAP and IBM to bring the SAP public cloud offering onto customer premises through Red Hat OpenShift.

IT innovation needs to happen wherever the customer is and it's not always the case that’s going to be the public cloud. Increasingly, enterprises are embracing a hybrid multi-cloud strategy which means vendors, in turn, must be flexible in their offerings.

"At Red Hat, we believe that the open hybrid cloud is the future. Realizing the opportunity it offers rests on balancing data strategies, business models, and using the latest innovation. We find that as companies continue to rapidly evolve business models and re-architect processes to better support clients, suppliers and the workforce, many are realising that public cloud offerings cannot fully meet their changing needs. The result is an increased interest in intelligent enterprises based on private and open hybrid cloud offerings. Frequently, we see business intelligence being driven by managed services, like SAP Cloud Platform, which makes the ability to use these services on-premises a key need for many organisations,” said Chris Wright, Chief Technology Officer, Red Hat.

Consequently, Red Hat has announced its collaboration with SAP and IBM to bring SAP’s managed services on-premises by validating private deployments of SAP Cloud Platform and related backing services on Red Hat OpenShift.

This solution is currently under test with selected early adopter clients but is expected to provide greater flexibility and choice in how enterprises gain insights, find new revenue streams, and maintain operations.

SAP is adapting the SAP Cloud Platform public offering so it can run from a customer’s location, using the customer’s own data centre resources. This will leverage Red Hat OpenShift’s virtualisation, container technology and Kubernetes to provide a secure and dedicated virtual infrastructure that integrates with existing systems.

"Together with IBM and SAP Red Hat aims to continue to open new doors for customers and jointly drive a common approach to hyperscale Kubernetes cluster management. This community-oriented collaboration looks to tap into trends such as virtualisation and Kubernetes as a means to modernise IT landscapes for customers, thereby supporting their journey to become an intelligent enterprise,” Wright said.
