SUSE Expands Collaboration with Amazon Web Services to Further Accelerate SAP Migrations to Linux on AWS

Amazon Web Services and SUSE expand relationship to enhance customer support experience and enable competitive, on-demand pricing for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications

NUREMBERG, Germany, Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SUSE® today announced the expansion of its relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS), which allows AWS to resell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications directly on AWS Marketplace. AWS customers running SAP workloads on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications – a leading platform for SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA – will get an integrated and streamlined support experience from AWS and SUSE. AWS customers can purchase the SUSE Linux Enterprise solution on demand, paying only for what they use. This expanded collaboration allows SUSE and AWS to meet growing customer demand for the agility and cost benefits of cloud-based business-critical applications.

"Tens of thousands of enterprises around the world, spanning major industries, count on SUSE for their mission-critical computing environments, including those running SAP workloads," said Naji Almahmoud, SUSE vice president of Global Alliances. "Our commitment to those enterprise users is unwavering, and this expanded collaboration demonstrates how AWS and SUSE are continually finding ways to enhance the customer experience for business-critical applications on the cloud using SUSE Linux for SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA. The marketplace can expect continued collaboration, which will enable us to meet and surpass customers' demanding requirements for SAP workloads on AWS."

Bas Kamphuis, general manager, Amazon Web Services, Inc., said, "We are excited to extend our relationship with SUSE to offer SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on AWS Marketplace. Our customers will receive Amazon Business support by default, providing a single point of contact. Further, the collaboration is designed to help customers deploy and scale SAP HANA workloads on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications more easily and at a more compelling price point."

Since AWS first certified its platform for SAP applications in 2012, customers have been using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server to run their SAP workloads on AWS. In 2014, when AWS certified its instances for SAP HANA, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications was also made available on AWS. To date, customers have largely relied on SUSE's bring-your-own-subscription program to deploy SAP workloads on AWS. The expanded collaboration lets customers benefit from on-demand pricing and Reserved Instances as they grow their SAP footprint on AWS.

Most SAP HANA customers use SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications as they develop, test and run production workloads, and many large enterprise customers are currently using SUSE solutions to develop, test and run their production SAP workloads on AWS. Following the release of X1 and X1e.32xlarge Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, which are purpose-built for in-memory workloads, deployments of SAP HANA workloads on AWS are increasing. Customers looking for production-grade SAP workloads on AWS can take advantage of the SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension, which allows SAP HANA instances to failover between Availability Zones. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications also includes enhancements such as page cache management and kernel settings that are optimized for SAP workloads.

Customers can easily get started with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications for their SAP HANA workloads using the AWS SAP HANA Quick Start. It helps provision and configure the infrastructure required to deploy SAP HANA, often in less than an hour, using best practices from AWS, SAP and SUSE.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
