Xtium Now an SAP-Certified Provider of Hosting and Cloud Services
Xtium, Inc., a leading enterprise software and solutions company providing managed cloud hosting, online backup and virtual disaster recovery services, has announced it is now an SAP-certified provider of hosting and cloud services for SAP® solutions.
Xtium earned certification as a provider of hosting and cloud services after meeting rigorous requirements of its ability to deliver on-demand hosting services utilizing virtualization and cloud technologies.
“Xtium is thrilled to have been certified by SAP as a provider of hosting and cloud services,” said Colleen Cody, head of enterprise operations, Xtium. “Most of our customers that utilize Xtium to host their SAP instances come through our partnerships with system integrators, such as YASH Technologies. We highly value these partnerships and are working towards adding more partnerships this year, so it was important for us to achieve these certifications.”
Xtium offers complete hosting packages for SAP business applications and the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. The certifications are significant for customers that want to ensure high-quality, sustainable and cost-effective operation of their SAP solutions.
“Our hosting solution allows customers to bring their own SAP application teams, and Xtium provides the flexible infrastructure to support those applications, which are all governed by the certifications set forth in the audit,” said Cody. “We have resources in place to make changes quickly, allowing customers to be more agile and gain operational efficiency.”
To receive SAP certification as a provider of hosting services, Xtium passed a detailed certification process to demonstrate its delivery capabilities for operating SAP solutions. The audit also analyzed many aspects of Xtium’s service offerings, such as the number of SAP systems that are currently hosted and the company’s experience deploying SAP solutions in the cloud. In addition to this, the data center facilities were also evaluated for infrastructure redundancy and fail-safe testing.
To achieve certification as an SAP-certified provider of cloud services, Xtium’s cloud delivery platform underwent review by SAP to validate the operational integration of its cloud-computing platform with supported SAP applications. The audit also included technical reviews of the physical and logical security processes supporting those cloud services.
