Symmetry Global cloud hosting platform deployed in Europe

Symmetry has announced the new deployment of its cloud hosting platform in Amsterdam, significantly extending the company´s global infrastructure for providing SAP application management; security; governance, risk and compliance (GRC); and hosting services, the company said.

Deployed in a new Tier 3 green data center, the Amsterdam cloud platform integrates with Symmetry´s four other global platform deployments to provide hosting clients with greater operational flexibility, geographic redundancy and cost effectiveness for their SAP and SAP HANA implementations.

The European expansion further extends Symmetry´s ability to support multinational enterprises that value implementing SAP instances in close proximity to European offices. It is also ideally suited to European businesses requiring an initial site that can be expanded on a unified global platform. Symmetry has wrapped next-generation application monitoring and reporting technology for SAP and SAP HANA applications as a standard part of its offerings, and rolled out innovative new services to clients, including disaster recovery as a service and SIEM as a service, along with its ControlPanelGRC® software suite, an industry provider of governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) automation for SAP environments.

Symmetry also announced it has partnered with smartShift Technologies to drive the initial customer deployment on the Amsterdam platform. The Symmetry cloud platform will be the hosting environment for one of smartShift´s customer´s SAP Business Suite on HANA and SAP Business Warehouse on HANA implementations. This large multinational industrial equipment manufacturer´s deployment, live on the platform and scheduled to go into full production in Q1 of 2018, has also expanded to incorporate Symmetry´s Disaster Recovery as a Service.
