Global managed cloud provider, Rackspace, has announced the launch of a ‘partner managed cloud’ for SAP software solutions. This ready-to-use, subscription-based offering of SAP solutions in Rackspace’s private hosted cloud would enable their 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.”
Following the acquisition of TriCore Solutions in June 2017, Rackspace will provide their customers with an on-demand, cloud-based delivery model of SAP software solutions. The managed cloud provider will supplement these services with application migration, implementation, management and support services.
With Rackspace’s recent acquisition of TriCore Solutions, 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 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.
