Sparkle has boosted its ERP Infrastructure solution by introducing certified SAP HANA hardware in its Instanbul data centre facility.

The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Infrastructure service, which is available in both Turkey and Greece, offers Sparkle’s multinational and domestic enterprise customers a secure environment for business-critical applications.

Sparkle’s ERP solution means that enterprises of all sizes can host key applications on a cloud platform instead of on-premise, helping to reduce capital investments in hardware plus running costs for maintenance.

The solution is fully integrated with Sparkle’s Tier-1 global IP transit service Seabone and also its Cloud Connect connectivity service. The addition of cloud-based SAP HANA services means Sparkle can offer enterprises an ERP platform with enterprise-grade SLAs, providing remote branches and mobile teams secure access to their company’s business-critical applications at any time and from any location.

The solution also features quality assurance (QA) and development (DEV) environments, SAP HANA high availability, backupsSolutions with alternative remote site, as well as managed services for tailor-made projects, Sparkle said.

It is being offered from Sparkle’s 2000sqm Istanbul data centre, which is located in Yenibosna. Sparkle's Mediterranean backbone is the first and only ring protected network in the region based on leading edge DWDM technology, providing seamless connectivity between Italy, Greece, Turkey, Israel and Cyprus by way of a 10,800 km Submarine System fully interconnected with Sparkle's Pan-European and Atlantic backbones.
