As the newest member of the SUSE Product Management Team for SAP Solutions, I am delighted to announce that SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications 15 SP4 is now validated for running SAP HANA on KVM hypervisor on Intel Cascade Lake CPUs. 

Customers can now run SAP HANA on SUSE KVM hypervisor with SLES15 SP4 as follows:  

  • SAP HANA certified 2 and 4-socket Intel Cascade Lake processor-based configurations in scale-up configurations 
  • Multiple VMs spanning 1, 2 or 4 sockets 
  • Up to 6 TB of memory  
  • OLAP workloads: Class L (up tp 3 TB) or Class M (up to 6 TB) 
  • NFS, Fibre-Channel Storage, or Direct-Attached / Local Storage 

 A big thank you and well done to everybody involved in the validation efforts. The great teamwork and collaboration between the SUSE SAP Solutions Team and our partner Fujitsu allowed us to achieve this complex validation in record time.
