SAP AG is the world's market leader in business software, generating annual sales of 10.25 billion Euros and employing more than 43,000 people. Customers of SAP all over the world trust in the efficiency and reliability of its hosting services. Their number is growing, since more and more users are realizing that selective hosting is a sensible alternative to in-house operation. The result is growing demand for online storage capacity and backup volumes. And there appear to be no limits to this growth. In view of this, SAP asked itself whether it ought to manage the required storage volume itself or do what its own hosting experts also recommend to customers: outsource services that are not their core competences and focus on business essentials.
