LONDON, UK – 5th JUNE 2018 – Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies business, today announced an expanded partnership with SAP, becoming one of the first global cloud providers to offer the SAP Data Hub solution on the cloud via Virtustream® Enterprise Cloud.

Customers can get up and running quickly with a comprehensive solution that is installed, managed and maintained by Virtustream, giving IT teams more time to focus on solving strategic business problems.
“We are evolving our solution through the addition of SAP Data Hub, which brings the latest in big data management capabilities to the cloud experience our customers know and love,” said Christina Colby, SVP, Alliances, Virtustream. “Our partnership with SAP means customers can now manage mission-critical big data workloads and cloud native workloads easier than ever before, which allows them to scale their big data solutions.”
Virtustream customers can leverage SAP Data Hub to build scalable, data-driven applications and services, bring them to market quickly, and have one location for data management and visibility. Customers also receive the many benefits of Virtustream Enterprise Cloud, including:
- A true enterprise-class cloud. Virtustream Enterprise Cloud is designed to run complex, mission-critical enterprise applications with a full suite of professional services. Virtustream offers high availability and performance speeds, backed by industry leading SLAs and integrated rigorous security.

Customers only pay for the resources used, reducing inefficiencies and creating significant cost savings, while eliminating overhead from unused virtual machines.
- Critical business systems are secure and protected by comprehensive IT security infrastructure. When combined with a wide range of industry-specific and government certifications, Virtustream Enterprise Cloud creates a trusted environment to run even the most sensitive enterprise data.
