SAP is a mission critical application workload that is pervasive across many industries including: Financial Services, Manufacturing, Life Sciences, Consumer Packaged Goods, and Highly regulated Industries. Many of these SAP workloads are virtualized across multinational companies’ vast geographical facilities. The majority of SAP customers rely on VMware as the underlying virtualization platform for these enterprise workloads, within their on-premise datacenter.

Today, IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions is the only VMware-based cloud providing this automated delivery of a secure single-tenant SAP certified infrastructure with full customer access control.
