Cloud, colocation and managed services provider Webair has announced that it has launched its SAP Cloud Hosting solution.

"By deploying Webair (News - Alert)'s SAP Cloud Hosting solution, enterprises become empowered to gain real-time insight into operations and key stakeholders to make intelligent business decisions, faster,” Sagi Brody, chief technology officer at Webair, said. "We take complete ownership and responsibility for all layers of customers' SAP (News - Alert) infrastructure, providing full stack management and enterprise-grade hardware with accountability from one provider -- from the bare metal to the application."

What Webair’s solution offers is a single point of contact for SAP services as well as consultants who know the ins and outs of SAP’s software. The company also handles migration support and post-migration optimization.

Webair also takes care of backups and disaster recovery, as well as security and scaling. The company claims over 99 percent uptime.

The company is particularly focusing on SAP HANA. HANA is an in-memory database management system that offers fast performance with real-time analytics.

While many companies are perfectly capable of setting up their own deployments of SAP’s software, large, enterprise-grade software packages can be complicated to manage. The complexity of systems like HANA is driving many enterprises to adopt cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) solutions to make it easier to deploy and manage them.

Customers can choose from accessing the deployment directly from the Internet, VPN or even an MPLS network.

Webair has partnered with HMS Technology Group to handle the actual management of SAP software.

"Our SAP Private Cloud Hosting solution eliminates business' largest SAP infrastructure challenge – a lack of synergy between their infrastructure and application layers," Hillel Zafir, co-founder of HMS Technology Group. "Companies can now go to a single, highly experienced provider for everything from SAP implementation to ongoing support and optimization, all delivered with innovation and agility in mind."
