Online PR News – 22-February-2012 – – Wharfedale Technologies Inc. (WFT Cloud), a leading professional IT services consulting firm specializing in cloud infrastructure integration, today announced a railway company based in North America moved their SAP ® landscape to WFT Cloud. WFT is an SAP certified provider of cloud services and implements, supports virtualization, private and public cloud services. The railway company plans to leverage WFT Cloud for its SAP solutions to reduce hardware costs and increase flexibility. WFTCloud is getting accredited by industry experts as leaders with SAP on Private Cloud.

The customer decided to phase out as much hardware as it could, keeping all of its non-production SAP solution-based landscapes and solutions including development, testing, training and sandbox systems in WFT Cloud where they’re secure and accessible.

“Many of our customers are big enterprise companies running SAP solutions and they are moving from traditional on-premise data center to WFT Cloud for all their non-production and other non-critical applications,” said Ganesh Radhakrishnan, CEO, Wharfedale Technologies Inc.

The customer is in the process of revamping its SAP landscape with new applications, and extensive, multi-phased roll-out development is taking place within the organization. Provisioning of new systems became very challenging within its existing environment and the CIO decided to move to the cloud for enabling its development team to meet the timelines. A decision was made to move all of its SAP solution development and sandbox system to WFT Cloud.

“The decision is not only to move to WFT Cloud for easy provisioning but also to reduce development cost by 20 to 25 percent,” said Mahesh Reddy, CTO, Wharfedale Technologies. “Since WFT Cloud provides scalability and elasticity, customers only pay for what they consume within the cloud. The biggest part of that savings is liberation from the need to commit to specific hardware requirements for a specific time.

“When customers need to add capacity or storage, they are often constrained by technology,” said Praveen Gadura, Senior Vice-President, Wharfedale Technologies. “This often requires a longer commitment involving provisioning, racking, stacking and managing the new technology.”

“Freedom from physical capacity planning makes a big difference in costs and is made possible in WFT Cloud, on which the service provider has created a dedicated virtual private cloud within a public cloud as necessary to raise utilization and make operation efficient,” added Ganesh Radhakrishnan, CEO, Wharfedale Technologies (WFT Cloud).

For the transportation business, where regulation and data sensitivity don’t compare to defense or healthcare or finance, the risk is low enough that economics outweighed them easily, still WFT Cloud enhanced customer confidence with its reliability, stability, security, compliance, capacity on-demand and seamless migration, which met all performance criteria defined by the customer.
