This week, SAP announced the launch of its first data center in the Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region, situated in Sydney. The company says that the new data center will provide locally hosted cloud-based solutions to private and public sector organizations as they transition to the cloud.
The new data center hosts SAP’s Hybris Commerce Cloud Edition so far, however the company is looking to host other cloud products such as Hybris as a Service, Hybris Engagement Center, Hybris Cloud for Customer and Hybris Marketing.
Stuart O’Neill, Head of Business – SAP Hybris ANZ said :
SAP Hybris has a commitment to build on our investment and technology partnerships here and across the APJ region.
The new service addresses the requirements of many Australian organisations eager to move to the cloud to innovate, create, deploy and host services in a single location.
The Sydney data center is the company’s third data center globally. SAP Hybris also has data centers in Germany and the US. The company says that the new data center is part of its global strategy to provide security and regional data compliance to all customers worldwide.
