WFTCloud – SAP Certified Cloud Services Partner has announced a new service to enable SAP customers to migrate to lower-cost, Managed Private Cloud Infrastructure.

IT leaders major concern for years is to maintain their IT infrastructure and reduce operation costs when it accounts for 60 per cent of total IT spend. Since things are still uncertain despite the economy showing some signs of improvement, this area of IT "strikes a resonant cord," says Gartner Inc.

CIO's today are certainly facing tough economic situations and constantly thriving hard working on IT cost reduction strategies says Ganesh Radhakrishnan, CEO WFTCloud, but economies doesn’t seem to be getting any better. CIO's are finding themselves at the end of their technological rope he said. Delayed buying decision, have left them with geriatric server, storage and networking infrastructure.

WFTCloud has developed a Private Cloud Solution specifically for SAP that aims to meet those needs. Created collaboratively with SAP and leading vendors in this field, this private cloud solution for SAP can dramatically shorten the time to provision new SAP landscapes from days to hours. What’s more, because it is run in the cloud, the solution can reduce costs while improving scalability, flexibility and recovery of systems.

The service is intended to enhance the performance of systems running SAP applications, improve flexibility, lower costs and use newer SAP technologies, including analytics and mobility. WFT said migrations could be delivered in less than four months at a fixed price.
Cloud computing will help CIO's to reduce TCO and also scale, provision SAP servers in minutes eliminating IT complexities says Ganesh Radhakrishnan, CEO Wharfedale Technologies (WFTCloud). "Our joint initiative with SAP on Cloud will take us to next level with this strategic Private Cloud Solution,” he said.

The SAP Private Cloud infrastructure of WFT is based on vBlock infrastructure (a joint initiative of Cisco, EMC & VMware). WFT’s deep expertise and understanding of vBlock and the SAP application results in design of an optimal landscape in cloud that not only meets the current business requirements but also makes it much easier to expand resources in architect SAP to run on Private Cloud. WFT executed more than 10+ implementations of vBlock SAP Private cloud in the industry.

"With vBlock vCloud, clients can move SAP applications from large, expensive servers to a smaller, highly efficient virtualized system powered by intel microprocessors in a x86 environment." said Mahesh Reddy, CTO of WFT.

"The vBlock platform from VCE is a great example of achieving higher performance for SAP at a lower cost," he said.

Some businesses are uncomfortable moving business-critical SAP systems off-premise to the public cloud, but private cloud systems offer the same efficiency and performance benefits, said Rajeev Menon, Vice President WFTCloud, while providing a level of data security and integrity found with on-premise legacy technologies.

In the case of WFT private cloud solution, WFT will manage the applications and infrastructure being delivered to the client.

The implementation of this infrastructure transformation solution requires a unique combination of skills, experience and capabilities. The intention of this solution is to help customers maximize the performance, scalability and provision SAP systems on-demand. Being a Certified Cloud Services Partner for SAP, WFTCloud also works very closely with SAPLabs for Cloud solutions.

WFT has successfully deployed these solutions to customers who are early adopters of SAP vBlock infrastructure, which resulted in improved performance, reduced costs and expanded SAP technology footprint in cloud.
