[News] Rackspace to Provide Partner Managed Cloud for SAP Software

Offers software subscription delivery of SAP solutions in a private cloud hosted by Rackspace’s newly formed Rackspace Applications Services

Rackspace announced an agreement with SAP to provide a partner managed cloud for SAP software solutions. Rackspace will offer an affordable, ready-to-use, subscription-based offering of SAP solutions in its private hosted cloud, enabling customers to access SAP software quickly and easily without the need for up-front infrastructure, dedicated staffing requirements and software licensing costs associated with on-premise software deployments.

“With this relationship, we’re providing a one-stop-shop for hosted services for SAP solutions – from software acquisition to ongoing support, all with one cloud delivery model – to directly address the customer pain points associated with today’s complex and distributed business environment,” said Mark Clayman, SVP and general manager of Rackspace Application Services, a new business unit formed following the company’s acquisition of TriCore Solutions. “By delivering a partner managed cloud, we’re allowing customers to quickly adopt the latest transformative SAP technologies without the high cost often associated with innovation.”

Rackspace will provide customers with a cost-effective, on-demand, cloud-based delivery model of their SAP software solutions. Rackspace will supplement these services with application migration, implementation, management and support services.

With Rackspace’s recent acquisition of TriCore Solutions in June 2017, the company can now bundle SAP software and Rackspace services together all within Rackspace data centers (previously TriCore Solutions). Rackspace Application Services is a SAP Silver Partner and recognized as a subject matter expert in supporting and delivering SAP solutions. The company is SAP-certified in hosting services for SAP solutions and in SAP HANA® operations services.
