The SAP HANA 2 platform, announced on November 8, 2016, is now available for deployment on the 64-bit little-endian variant of IBM POWER8 systems running SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12 Service Pack 1.

This announcement enables SAP HANA 2 customers to exploit the capabilities of SLES 12 including features such as the systemd service manager, system rollback via the btrfs filesystem, and automated fail over of SAP HANA environments by the SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension.

To support the SAP HANA 2 platform, SUSE is providing SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP® Applications 12 Service Pack 1 for POWER.  Like the previous releases of SLES for SAP Applications, it is designed to improve SAP HANA availability and performance by providing multiple high availability options that can automate SAP HANA System replication and fail over, maintain performance with Page Cache limits, and provide seamless priority support from SUSE and SAP.

SUSE support for the latest generation of SAP HANA extends SUSE market leadership in SAP HANA deployments, built on over 13 years of partnership with SAP to supporting thousands of customers.

Please note that the ISO image for SLES 12 SP1 for SAP Applications is not available but update channels can be used instead.
