March 3, 2022

SAP and Arvato Systems collaboration

SAP and Arvato Systems plan to invest in a sovereign cloud platform for the German administration. The new cloud offering must meet specific national requirements as part of the German cloud strategy, the two companies say. Under the new proposal, there will be no dependence on networks outside of Germany – both data processing and data storage, as well as the operation of all services, take place in the Federal Republic. There is also a complete separation from Microsoft’s global data centers and the existing public cloud infrastructure in Germany.

The technical offering is based on the proven Microsoft Azure cloud platform and can provide both Microsoft services and SAP enterprise solutions and applications.
