This blog post is a bit different from my usual posts. In this post, I want to answer the question “Why NetApp for SAP?”


There are many reasons, but if I had to explain it in one sentence, I’d say that while SAP is the backbone of your enterprise needs, NetApp® solutions for SAP HANA help you deliver validated solutions to complete your projects in less time, with fewer resources and lower delivery risk.


17+ Years of Co-Innovation

NetApp shares a long-term partnership with SAP. Together, we’ve developed many joint ventures over the years: adaptive computing, NetApp Snap Manager® for SAP, SAP applications build on FlexPod®, integrations and optimizations of SAP operations for SAP HANA landscapes,  and ventures in digital transformation and IoT.


In this video, my colleague Tobias Brandl dives deep into our long-lasting partnership with SAP and its benefits for you.
