Princeton, NJ (Vocus) November 15, 2010
Wharfedale Technologies, Inc. (WFT), a leading technology consulting firm specializing in infrastructure integration in the implementation and support of virtualization and private cloud services, today announced it is now an SAP-certified provider of cloud services. Through these services, WFT will help enterprise customers using SAP® solutions create roadmaps and strategies for deploying their SAP solutions via a cloud model.
“Providing virtualization and cloud services in support of SAP solutions presents a tremendous opportunity for WFT and our clients,” said Ganesh Radhakrishnan, CEO of WFT. “The advantage and benefits of consolidating servers will lower the number of physical servers needed, increase rack space utilization efficiency within the data center, provide on-demand provisioning of servers, as well as reduce physical server maintenance and create computing elasticity. These are just a few of the reasons why we are thrilled to implement cloud services for customers using SAP solutions.”
WFT Cloud Services is a comprehensive, integrated offering that helps customers utilize all of their resources within the infrastructure to enable them to be “elastic”. The service also helps customers reduce their hardware footprint within their data center by consolidating servers through virtualization. This enables customers to provision their servers easily, on-demand.
“The certification of WFT as a provider of cloud services confirms its capabilities to deliver SAP applications via its private cloud offerings,” said Michael Ressemann, Global Head of Outsourcing Services and Solution Delivery, SAP AG. “WFT’s focus on designing, building and implementing flexible, scalable and elastic private cloud offerings will help SAP customers increase their operational efficiencies and reduce manual processes.”
To achieve this certification and help ensure high-quality standards for cloud-based delivery of SAP applications, a provider’s cloud delivery platform must undergo extensive testing by SAP to validate the operational integration of the cloud-computing platform with supported applications. This includes assessment of the company’s infrastructure, processes and technical staff. The audit also includes a technical review of the physical and logical security processes, as well as portal and underlying infrastructure including servers, software and storage capabilities. By working with certified SAP partners, customers can be confident that the services provided are compliant with SAP’s requirements for quality, availability and security.
As an SAP-certified provider of cloud services, WFT will receive guidance on operating cloud environments and best practices, as well as continuous knowledge transfer by SAP. This will help them to deliver high-quality services in support of SAP solutions to their clients.
