Steel Authority of India selects HPE for private cloud


BENGALURU, India — The Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) is working with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to “accelerate” its digital transformation.

SAIL selected HPE GreenLake to provide on-premises private cloud with on-demand capacity for its central marketing organization (CMO), according to HPE last month.

SAIL’s infrastructure was reaching end of life and the organization needed to migrate to SAP’s S/4 HANA enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to improve application availability and business continuity.

SAIL wanted a cloud experience with flexible capacity to handle the constant growth of its data, but also wanted to keep its data in its data center.

HPE led the design and implementation of the end-to-end solution, spanning HPE and third-party products, including data center deliverables.

HPE Pointnext Services worked with SAIL to manage the system integration project and its implementation. HPE designed an architecture based on open standards and refreshed storage. The HPE team migrated from Unix to Linux with minimal application downtime.

JThe new environment has reduced the data center footprint and resulted in reduced power consumption and operational complexity, thereby improving operating costs.

The HPE GreenLake Platform meets compliance and regulatory requirements, data stays on-premises, and delivers the private cloud through a pay-as-you-go model.

HPE GreenLake Central also provides SAIL with a dashboard to monitor and plan daily IT consumption, improve spend visibility, and improve budget planning.

The implementation enables SAIL to “address its current and future business challenges,” said Som Satsangi, Managing Director of HPE India.

“We look forward to building on this momentum and offering the same services to other public and private entities,” Satsangi said.
