Verizon Enterprise Solutions plans to deploy the SAP HANA platform in Verizon's data centers, making it available to customers across Verizon's cloud offerings, including eCloud, Managed Hosting and the new Verizon Cloud.
SAP HANA is the in-memory data base platform at the core of SAP's cloud vision. SAP HANA was introduced to the market two years ago and has since gained more than 3,000 customers.
"As cloud computing trends upward in our industry, our ecosystem will play an even more important role in our overall strategy and vision for offering a complete portfolio of cloud solutions," said Bob Grazioli, global head, Cloud Ecosystem, SAP. "Through collaboration with leading companies such as Verizon, we intend to provide our customers with even more choices to run applications developed on SAP HANA. We expect that our partners' cloud offerings will be able to offer SAP customers the world-class service and innovation they have come to expect from SAP."
Verizon Cloud was announced in October 2013 and is currently in beta.
