Webair has announced the launch of its SAP Cloud Hosting solution, which combines Webair's end-to-end managed infrastructure and expertise with global enterprise and business solutions provider HMS Technology Group LLC's management of SAP software and applications.

Providing a secure, scalable, and effective solution, Webair's SAP Cloud Hosting offering includes legacy migration, installation and configuration, licensing and application support, and post-migration optimization. Hosting and Infrastructure solutions encompass high availability hosting, business continuity and disaster recovery, and SAP BASIS support. The development underscores Webair's mission to focus on providing the right solutions to customer needs as efficiently as possible, as well as its core belief in taking complete ownership, accountability and control of the entire technology stack — from the physical data center to the enduser application.

"By deploying Webair's SAP Cloud Hosting solution, enterprises become empowered to gain real-time insight into operations and key stakeholders to make intelligent business decisions, faster," states Sagi Brody, chief technology officer at Webair. "We take complete ownership and responsibility for all layers of customers' SAP infrastructure, providing full stack management and enterprise-grade hardware with accountability from one provider — from the bare metal to the application."

A key SAP focus for Webair is SAP HANA. SAP HANA combines database and application platform capabilities, enabling enterprises to reduce transactional speeds from weeks to seconds, obtain real-time analytics, improve predictive and spatial processing, and reduce their footprint and storage costs by eliminating additional systems. Additional platform advantages for customers include text analytics and search, spatial data processing, predictive analytics and processing, series data processing, and streaming data processing. SAP HANA implementation is fast, cost-effective and operationally efficient, requiring no expensive implementation consultants, nor changing of SQL queries. Customers can also optimize their SAP Cloud Hosting solution with access to Webair's value-added services, including Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), Hybrid Cloud services including colocation, private and public cloud, managed backups and tiered cloud storage. 

"Our SAP Private Cloud Hosting solution eliminates business' largest SAP infrastructure challenge — a lack of synergy between their infrastructure and application layers," adds Hillel Zafir, co-founder of HMS Technology Group. "Companies can now go to a single, highly experienced provider for everything from SAP implementation to ongoing support and optimization, all delivered with innovation and agility in mind."

Webair can deliver SAP applications through a host of delivery options, including directly via the Internet and Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnels, private line to customer networks or through customers' existing Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks. Webair backs SAP Cloud Hosting with industry-leading Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that guarantee up to 99.999% uptime with high availability, defined performance, application latency, throughput and consistency, and response-time attributes.
