Xtium needed to deliver SAP "test drive" environments complete with Microsoft SQL Server databases to enable SAP customers to try and buy software, while meeting SaaS expectation of swift installation and delivery. To meet SAP’s requirements, it needed to fully provision these customers within 24 hours.
