Hess Selects Virtustream for SAP HANA Cloud Deployment

Virtustream xStream enables easy-to-implement, high-performance Cloud Managed Service solution for SAP HANA

Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON - Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - Virtustream,  the enterprise-class cloud software and services provider, today announced that Hess Corporation, a leading global independent energy company engaged in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas, has migrated its SAP HANA test, dev and QA environments to Virtustream’s xStream cloud platform. 

Prior to selecting Virtustream, Hess faced challenges with the management and maintenance of its SAP HANA deployment. In need of a cloud solution that offered an OPEX instead of CAPEX model, Hess evaluated Virtustream and determined that the company’s SAP-certified xStream cloud offering and expertise with complex HANA deployments matched their requirements. 

“Hess is a great example of a large company taking advantage of the many benefits of deploying HANA in the cloud,” said Michael Hoch, senior vice president for Cloud Advisory Services at Virtustream. “They wanted their SAP HANA environment in the cloud up and running quickly for production and non-production purposes. We were able to provide the solution and support to deploy ahead of their proposed timeline, and Hess is already taking advantage of our high-performance and flexible cloud platform to meet their business needs and accelerate their business.” 

By specializing in the migration of mission-critical applications to the cloud, Virtustream is able to help enterprises, such as Hess, enhance the capabilities of their IT environments using the cloud. Within 10 days, the implementation was complete – despite an initial timeline of 30 days. Virtustream also assisted Hess with the deployment of its production SAP environment to the company’s on-premise data center and will provide maintenance and management support for both the production and non-production cloud environments. Hess is also using Virtustream cloud storage for backup and disaster recovery purposes. 

Virtustream xStream leverages its micro-VMTM (µVM) technology to provide application performance SLAs, multi-tenant efficiency, and a consumption-based pricing model for both legacy (SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, etc.) and modern web-scale applications. Virtustream unveiled HANA Managed Service last year when the company went live with the first ever SAP ECC production HANA system in its cloud.
