An Information Management (IM) system turns documents into a resource rather than a burden, making them securely accessible to those who need them, whenever they need them, without affecting the performance of the organization’s SAP solutions. OpenText is not only a market leader in IM, but it also has been a long-time SAP strategic partner with active solution co-development. Google Cloud selected OpenText as its preferred IM. This allows SAP customers to combine OpenText capabilities along with advanced technologies like analytics and AI to streamline and automate workflows, and capitalize on critical data.Read more here.

Data protection experts have a vital role to play in this team effort. With Google Cloud backup and storage administrators have multiple tools to safeguard their organization’s data during and after cloud migration.Google Cloud Storage was architected to address two common administrator needs - for multi-region storage and for performant, low-latency cold storage - and to ensure conventional RTO, RPO, and compliance requirements can easily be met. All of this facilitates team-wide adoption of cloud storage for backup use cases. Chris Schilling is writing about it and a number of offerings that allow GCP customers to architect a data protection strategy that meets their compliance and operational requirements. https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/storage-data-transfer/guide-data-protection-offerings-google-cloud
The product team rolled out the new GKE autopilot last week and I wanted to assess whether the community sees this as a big deal, about time, under the noise floor? We are working on building out some applications and infrastructure programming for the community and I wanted to test whether it was worth chasing down Drew and the GKE product team around this topic.

For Really Big SAP workloads -- Announcing Google Cloud Bare Metal Solution for SAP. #brilliantbaremetalWhen customers run SAP workloads on Google Cloud, we know that scalability is a major concern. It's why SAP on Google Cloud offers some of the industry's most powerful SAP-certified infrastructure options: single-node 6TB and 12TB VMs optimized for S/4HANA OLTP workloads.Some of our customers, however, run on-premises SAP environments that are far bigger than the biggest and most robust VMs. As you might expect, running SAP workloads at such massive scale can be an expensive, complex, and generally burdensome undertaking. But customers can see major operational benefits like greater scalability and lower cost of ownership if they move these mega-scale SAP workloads to a cloud environment. Performance is critical as well. See below for details on our record setting bare metal performance benchmark for SAP. Check out the details here. Helpful? Let us know.
