SAP Cloud Appliance Library and SUSE Linux Enterprise on Amazon AWS

SAP and SUSE share along history of successful partnership. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) has exclusively been the base operating system for SAP HANA for quite some time and the market values this. It is just a logical step, that what works for the data center also works for the cloud.

“HANA is just the start. We embarked on this journey with SUSE and we’ll continue on it with SUSE.” Chris Hallenbeck, Global Vice President of HANA Solution Management at SAP, used these words in his keynote speech at SUSECon 2013 in Orlando to sum up the latest highlight of this long-standing collaboration.

Vojtěch’s announcement about kGraft started a number of interesting discussions, e.g. at LWN, Reddit, and German Heise. All of those discussions have some common topics. One of these is the question whether a live kernel patching solution such as kGraft is necessary at all. Some typical comments sound like this: What’s so bad about rebooting?
