Bangalore: India’s ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited) has selected the HPE GreenLake platform to modernize its critical infrastructure, HPE said in a statement.
Via HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform, ONGC will run an advanced SAP S/4HANA critical environment to improve business processes. The includes business performance, digitization, reduce transaction processing and gaining better insights from improved analytics.
ONGC has one of the largest SAP implementations in the world chose to host the SAP S/4HANA workloads on the HPE GreenLake platform in ONGC data centres, due to strategic compliance, performance, and security priorities.
ONGC contributes an estimated 71% of India’s domestic oil and gas production. In a bid to increase production with new regulatory requirements and security protocols, ONGC needed to modernize its SAP workloads in a flexible and scalable manner.
The modernization would help ONGC to digitize more applications, improve analytics and eliminate critical data loss.
ONGC’s need was a pay-per-use model that could be implemented quickly without any impact on security and availability. Moreover, it wanted to accomplish digital transformation projects quickly with minimal upfront investment.
“At ONGC, we are driving improved process efficiency through information consolidation without compromising data security,” said H.P Singh, CIO – ONGC.
“HPE has been a trusted partner for a number of years, and through its strong partnership with SAP, we knew they had a deep understanding of our requirements,” added Singh.
“ HPE GreenLake enables us to manage edge-to-cloud data from one platform and retain our mission-critical infrastructure within our own data centers, maintaining the best levels of security, which is crucial to our business,” Singh commented on the HPE GreenLake platform.
ONGC is an existing HPE customer and it already had firsthand experience of the simplicity, ease and agility of the HPE GreenLake cloud services for its storage environment. Hence it selected the HPE GreenLake platform to deliver a scalable, secure, cloud service for its mission-critical SAP S/4HANA 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.
The expanded HPE GreenLake agreement also supports a new deployment of Aruba networking solutions to deliver faster, more reliable connectivity and reduce network latency. As a result, ONGC’s full edge-to-cloud infrastructure for the SAP environment is now running on the HPE GreenLake platform.
HPE GreenLake platform ensures a 30% buffer capacity available on-premises to scale up and down as the business demands, meaning more flexibility for ONGC as it makes a full IT refresh. HPE GreenLake Central also gives ONGC a dashboard to monitor and plan daily IT use and spend, to avoid any hidden costs.
“Customers are increasingly choosing the HPE GreenLake platform to obtain the best cloud experience for their industry-critical workloads, because it gives them the security and control of keeping and managing their apps and data wherever they want,” said Som Satsangi, MD – Hewlett Packard Enterprise, India.
“Because our HPE GreenLake cloud services run on HPE technology solutions which have been perfectly tuned to run these different workloads, we can also deliver market-leading performance,” added Satsangi,
HPE Pointnext Services worked with ONGC to build and implement a clear roadmap for the current and future refresh, without compromising on the fault-tolerant nature and security aspects of its technology environment.
