AWS customers running SAP workloads on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications would 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 would allow 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.”
SAP Workloads on AWS Cloud
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 Cloud. In 2014, when AWS certified its instances for SAP HANA, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications was also made available on AWS Cloud. The expanded collaboration would let customers benefit from on-demand pricing and Reserved Instances as they grow their SAP footprint on AWS Cloud.
“We are excited to extend our relationship with SUSE to offer SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on AWS Marketplace,’ said Bas Kamphuis, general manager, Amazon Web Services. “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.”
