CenturyLink has signed an agreement with SAP to offer premium supplier services for SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud in Asia Pacific.
These services, delivered through data centers located in Singapore and India, can help organizations across the region accelerate their digital transformation journeys by combining the real-time computing power of the SAP HANA platform with CenturyLink's global network infrastructure and in-house expertise in SAP solutions.
SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is a private, secure cloud fully managed by SAP and supported by global partners, and is often used by companies that run mission-critical applications in the cloud.
Through this holistic approach, CenturyLink said it can support large-scale production workloads and provide metro-specific disaster recovery services.
The launch builds on CenturyLink's global premium supplier partnership agreement with SAP, and successful SAP project implementations for clients in Asia Pacific.
Early this year, CenturyLink acquired SEAL Consulting, an Edison, New Jersey-based SAP solutions provider, for an undisclosed sum. The deal underscores the Monroe, Louisiana-based telco’s intent to continue investing in its already broad portfolio of IT services after having sold its global data center fleet to Medina Capital and BC Partners.
In May, the company announced a fully managed solution with the latest SAP software–focused solution with enhanced automation for infrastructure management, SAP software deployment and configuration.
