In a keynote exclusive to SUSECON Digital, we are excited to hear from Lalit Patil, Chief Technology Officer, SAP Enterprise Cloud Services. SAP Enterprise Cloud Services, commonly known as RISE with SAP, is one of the largest private cloud deployments, with more than 105,00 servers running in scale in an industrial manner.

The success of such a flagship cloud service relies on the robust infrastructure behind it, as the underlying platform needs to be equally scalable, secure and compatible with the major hyperscalers. Join the virtual keynote and learn from Lalit Patel about how SAP works with SUSE to keep RISE with SAP scalable and secure.

Two years ago, SAP launched RISE with SAP, a bundling of existing SAP assets that focuses on providing customers with business transformation as a service. Today, more than 4,500 customers have adopted RISE with SAP powered by SUSE. Most of the RISE with SAP infrastructure, with over 100,000 servers and Petabytes of memory and storage, runs on SUSE products. The SUSE-based reference architecture helps customers transition to the cloud quickly and smoothly. The operating system is a core area when it comes to security and scalability. As such, SAP trusts SUSE to help achieve Zero Trust security.
