Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) July 09, 2011
Symmetry Corporation, an industry leader in providing expert services in support of Basis and SAP® solutions, announced today that it is now an SAP-certified provider of cloud and hosting services. These new certifications complement Symmetry’s existing status as an SAP hosting partner.
“As an SAP-certified provider of cloud and hosting services, SAP has certified Symmetry’s ability to provide standardized IT solutions and services based on shared resources via the Internet as well as hosting services with high-quality operational standards,” said Dan Wilhelms president, Symmetry. “This will provide our customers with an extra measure of confidence that the services provided by Symmetry for management of SAP solutions are compliant with SAP’s requirements for quality, availability and security.”
Symmetry earned certification as a provider of hosting services after meeting rigorous requirements of its ability to deliver on-demand hosting services utilizing virtualization and cloud technologies. To achieve certification as an SAP-certified provider of cloud services, Symmetry’s Enterprise Cloud platform underwent extensive testing by SAP to validate the operational integration of its cloud-computing platform with supported SAP applications. The audit also included technical reviews of the physical and logical security processes supporting those cloud services.
"These certifications confirm Symmetry’s ability to deliver high-quality cloud and hosting services in support of SAP applications," said Michael Ressemann, global head, Outsourcing Services and Solution Delivery, SAP. "Through Symmetry’s Enterprise Cloud environment, in support of SAP solutions, Symmetry will help customers be more agile and gain operational efficiency. SAP customers can benefit from comprehensive and innovative service offerings from Symmetry, which are scalable and will help them meet their technical and security requirements in a hosted environment and via the cloud."
Enterprise Cloud solutions and services from Symmetry in support of SAP applications include hosting, cloud-based disaster-recovery solutions and temporary systems for proof-of-concept style sandboxes and test environments. Symmetry’s cloud solutions are delivered by practiced experts who understand the nuances of SAP solution-based infrastructure and can provide the strategic guidance and ongoing support that customers expect. This high-quality support includes strategy development, architecture design and sizing, migration, monitoring and ongoing application support once in the cloud.
“Customers are not comfortable trusting their business-critical systems to a do-it-yourself-style experimental cloud solution,” said Frank Powell, chief operating officer, Symmetry. “Symmetry’s Enterprise Cloud solutions deliver far more than just disk and CPU. We believe that application expertise and strong customer service are an integral part of any true enterprise-level solution and back that statement with one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry.”
