Software-enabled cloud services provider Lemongrass, with clients spanning multiple verticals and geographies across the Americas, EMEA and APAC, is now partnering with Google to run SAP on Google Cloud’s “scalable, flexible, and sustainable” infrastructure.
“We are excited to begin this partnership and appreciate Google Cloud’s confidence in our capabilities,” said Mike Rosenbloom, CEO of Lemongrass. “The design and intelligence of the Google Cloud Platform combined with Lemongrass’s comprehensive and demonstrated expertise with complex SAP systems means near zero downtime migrations and agile and flexible management and maintenance for enterprises choosing to run their SAP on GCP.”
Through this new agreement with Google, Lemongrass is expanding its managed services and Google Cloud migration assistance to speed up clients’ transfer of SAP systems and data to Google Cloud, with advantages that would include:
- High degrees of operational automation including low down time operations
- Self-healing SAP systems
- Improved availability and performance
- Cost-efficient, low impact migrations with minimal down time
- Accelerated SAP change and SAP project delivery
6,000 SAP Servers
In the planning, migration, operations and automation of SAP, Lemongrass is an established leader. Lemongrass would allow the economy, scale and agility of hyperscale computing while mitigating risks and uncertainties with its unique blend of knowledge, skills and best practices. The Lemongrass Cloud Platform would allow minimal downtimes for cloud migration, while intelligent management services would provide close to zero downtime for SAP and its associated workloads.
Today a tiny fraction of worldwide SAP users would operate in the cloud, giving Lemongrass a major advantage that has been moving SAP clients into the cloud since 2010 and presently has more than six thousand SAP servers and over three hundred thousand users managed. With the extension of its hyperscale portfolio, Lemongrass can offer clients that wish to run on Google Cloud an own brand of software and services.
Google Cloud recently announced that it has expanded its relationship with SAP to assist clients carry out their essential global SAP workload on Google Cloud. Lemongrass hopes to substantially speed up SAP migration for business clients with its new relationship with Google Cloud.
“We’re proud to partner with Lemongrass to accelerate customers’ migrations of their most critical workloads to Google Cloud,” said Rob Enslin, President at Google Cloud. “Lemongrass provides leading migration support and managed services for SAP, and their expertise will help businesses benefit at scale from Google Cloud’s global infrastructure, and capabilities in AI, ML, and analytics.”
