Most technology innovation today is cloud-native or cloud-inspired. “Cloud computing” is morphing into just “computing,” and so application leaders must seek cloud-style quality of service across their hybrid information and technology environments.
This makes it clear that SAP’s decision to offer SAP S/4HANA on the cloud was a wise one. At SUSE, neither of these shifts have come as a surprise. In fact, we’ve been helping enterprises move to the cloud for years, and have already worked with multiple customers to help them successfully capture the benefits of SAP S/4HANA.
Cloud options are many. At SUSE, we believe there’s a place for all clouds: public, private and hybrid. In fact, we offer our own version of private cloud software in SUSE® OpenStack Cloud.
SAP applications in the public cloud
Our flagship Linux operating system, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, is available on all the major cloud vendors. Most importantly for those considering SAP S/4HANA on the cloud, we’ve made our SAP leadership solution SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications available on the public cloud as well.
- If you are concerned about the flexibility and availability of your enterprise resource planning system in the cloud, consider the unique capabilities of SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server on Microsoft Azure.
- AWS has worked closely with SAP to certify the AWS cloud platform for SAP solutions. It also provides tools such as AWS SAP HANA Quick Start, which can help you deploy a Multi-Availability Zone (single-node, high-availability architecture based on SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension) using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications in less than one hour.
- While Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure currently lead the industry, you also have a range of other options, including Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, Alibaba and even a slate of regional hosts that offer dedicated managed services.
SAP applications in the private cloud
Do you consider a private or hybrid cloud environment?
- OpenStack software provides an open source cloud computing solution. SUSE OpenStack is the ideal private cloud platform to help transform your data center. It delivers the next level of efficiency and innovation without the risks of vendor lock-in and high costs.
