Elastifile, a pioneer of enterprise-grade, scalable file storage for the public cloud, today announced that it has become an SAP PartnerEdge Open Ecosystem “ Build partner, further strengthening the synergistic bonds between Elastifiles enterprise-grade, cloud-native file storage and the cutting-edge cloud application suite from SAP.
As organizations seek to excel in the cloud era, public cloud integration has emerged as a crucial element of a winning IT strategy. The clouds elasticity, scalability, and flexible consumption models are a perfect match for the agility required by the competitive modern enterprise. SAP, via its full suite of cloud-hosted business applications, has harnessed the best attributes of cloud to enable flexible business process flows and powerful analytics. However, to deliver robust end-to-end solutions, the associated applications require an equally flexible, highly-available data management layer. Elastifiles cutting-edge storage services uniquely satisfy those challenging cloud requirements without introducing cumbersome management complexity. SAP users can smoothly connect their cloud-based applications to Elastifile file storage in the cloud, just as they would if running those applications on-premises and connecting to a physical storage array.
