Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced that Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) has selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to run its advanced SAP S/4 HANA mission-critical environment to improve performance, accelerate digitization, reduce transaction processing and gain better insights from improved analytics. ONGC, which boasts one of the largest SAP implementations in the world, chose to host the SAP S/4 HANA workloads on the HPE GreenLake platform in ONGC data centers, due to strategic compliance, performance, and security priorities.
ONGC is an energy supplier in India that contributes an estimated 71% of the nation’s domestic oil and gas production. To continue its commitment to national production while meeting new regulatory requirements and security protocols, ONGC recognized the need to modernize its SAP workloads to be flexible and scale up or down based on new demands and allow it to digitize more applications, improve analytics and eliminate critical data loss. ONGC was looking for a pay-per-use model that could be implemented quickly without any impact on security and availability. In addition, they wanted to be able to accomplish their digital transformation project quickly with minimal upfront investment.
As an existing HPE customer, ONGC already had first-hand experience of the simplicity, ease, and agility of the HPE GreenLake cloud services for its storage environment, and therefore also selected the HPE GreenLake platform to deliver a scalable, secure, cloud service for its mission-critical SAP S/4 HANA infrastructure and underlying network environment. ONGC decided to run HPE Superdome Flex on the HPE GreenLake platform because it can process more data in real-time, speed up analytics and maintain fault-tolerant operations with in-memory computing, resulting in superior performance for SAP S/4 HANA workloads.
