Put SAP Data in the Cloud to Re-align Values and Costs
The SAP world is abuzz about Cloud Computing, and for good reason. In the past few months, SAP announced a number of tools to help companies run SAP solutions on private cloud architectures.
But amidst all the buzz, there hasn’t been much talk on one aspect of cloud computing highly relevant for any user of SAP solutions: incorporating cloud storage into SAP data and document archiving strategies. Dolphin is the first.
Dolphin’s Content Archive Service for Cloud lets SAP users use Storage as a Service as an ArchiveLink repository. The service allows a direct connection from the SAP archiving layer to major public cloud providers such as AT&T Synaptic Storage as a Service, Amazon S3 and Google Cloud. It’s an option that makes sense for any organization, whether or not you are running other SAP solutions in the cloud.
The primary advantage is that cloud storage lets SAP users align the cost of storage with the value of their data. It frees customers to invest in high performance access for current, frequently used data, while shifting seldom used data and documents to a lower cost and practically infinitely elastic cloud storage services.
