SUSE collaborates with Amazon Web Services to accelerate SAP migrations

The expanded collaboration allows SUSE and AWS to meet growing customer demand for the agility and cost benefits of cloud-based business-critical applications.

Feb 14 - 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.

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.
