Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Wharfedale Technologies, Inc. was featured in the September 2013 issue of CIO Magazine as company of the month. In an article focused on Cloud Computing, CEO Ganesh Radhakrishnan provides perspective on the challenges facing companies moving to the Cloud.
Cloud computing represents a significant paradigm change with implications for the entire SAP IT community. Industry analysts surmise that a significant number of SAP enterprises have already progressed from virtualization onto on-premise cloud technology and a large percentage of Cloud customers will run on hybrid cloud within the next few years. Many SAP customers understand that cloud computing could provide significant benefits, in particular from increased flexibility. However, these customers are undertaking risk analysis of the different cloud models before developing their cloud strategy. Today's early adoption fears along with immature technology, perceived security risks and other business concerns prevent widespread enterprise adoption of private, public and hybrid clouds.
Wharfedale Technologies (WFT Cloud) leverages its extensive SAP expertise to aid companies in making the transition. Understanding the needs of their clients, WFT has a stronghold in creating On-Premise Private as well as Public and Hybrid Cloud solutions. The company helps create the roadmap and strategy for enterprises to move from their current environment to the cloud. By optimizing critical application landscape and leveraging existing hardware and software investment, it facilitates a smooth transform to a service oriented enterprise and creates significant cost efficiencies.
"Our knowledge is our strength. We never deviate from our focus on technology and infrastructure to functional aspects or any other thing. We only put our trust into one aspect that is technology and that is what has driven us into cloud," explains Ganesh. The company was the first certified SAP cloud services partner in 2010 and SAP hosting partner in 2009. WFT was also first in the market to virtualize SAP Production landscapes and was the first VCE partner in the world selected to facilitate deployment of converged infrastructure for the cloud. Closely aligned with SAP, the company has strong partnerships with both leading technology vendors and best in class service providers such as EMC, Cisco, SAP, VMware and NetApp among others.
Overall, the company helped over 200 customers in 5 countries (USA, Canada, Spain, Brazil & India) with their cloud and infrastructure needs. WFT Cloud, Wharfedale's managed cloud offering, services companies from 139 countries who benefit from rapid provisioning using WFT Cloud's own SAP Cloud Image Factory (SCIF), Rapid Cloud Migration and all inclusive pricing model. With extensive expertise in both the application (SAP & Oracle) and database (HANA, Oracle, SQL & DB2) environments and infrastructure (Private Cloud, Virtualization, High Availability, Disaster Recovery, Backup & Restore, Storage, etc.), WFT works with clients in the financial, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, retail, distribution, transportation, utilities and entertainment industries, as well as key government agencies.
