IBM Gets Some Love – SAP Solutions Verified To Run On Softlayer

3/06/2014 by

Another development on the seemingly never-ending mission of IBM to build credibility for its Softlayer cloud platform. The company is today announcing that Softlayer has been verified for deployments of SAP applications.

This is, of course, very important for Big Blue. IBM prides itself on being the vendor of choice for the largest of the world’s organisations. These organisations invariably use big enterprise technology solutions from companies like SAP and Oracle – by supporting customers’ use of these applications on IBM cloud services, the company manages to continue to talk a story whereby enterprise customers get to leverage existing suppliers and platforms, but take advantage of the benefits that cloud infrastructure can bring.

It is also undoubtedly positive for SAP. The company is trying to avoid customers getting excited about their ability to move off SAP and onto new, more agile cloud solutions. By delivering SAP software, but within a cloud infrastructure, some of the advantages that cloud solutions bring are delivered to customers, without SAP losing precious revenue.

In terms of what solutions will run on IBM Softlayer, SAP has verified both SAP Business Suite and SAP BusinessObjects to run on Big Blue’s shiny new cloud kit. In one swoop customers have access to the 40 Softlayer data centers globally, spread across five continents – they have far more flexibility in terms of location of software on which to host their business functions. They’re also able to extend into new regions more readily – instead of having to build out their own data center capacity in new regions, customers can expand to new locations at the flick of a switch.
