Overview of Our SAP Hosting Services

  • SAP Hosting

    SAP hosting in the outsourcing model gives you the ability to exert the greatest possible influence on your SAP applications while concurrently reducing the workload for your organization. In SAP hosting, Arvato Systems provides support for SAP Basis and operates the database, operating system, hardware, storage, and backup, and also provides a certified data center infrastructure in Germany. The infrastructure is provided as dedicated hardware or, in the rental model, is flexibly sourced from Arvato Systems Cloud Services.

    Customizable, reliable in-memory technology: SAP HANA database
    With its SAP HANA database, SAP launched an innovative in-memory platform in 2011 – and with SAP HANA 2, the expanded release of the SAP HANA platform is now available.

  • SAP Remote Service

    Remote support for your SAP system gives you the freedom to choose the location and platform while concurrently ensuring security and optimum monitoring of your SAP systems by our experts. In SAP remote support, Arvato Systems handles the administration of SAP Basis, the database, and the operating system at data center locations of your choosing: even in the cloud. You can use your own space, rent co-locations at central sites, or book infrastructure from a public cloud. Arvato Systems always guarantees optimum support – in the hybrid model, as well.
