Minimize the time and effort to transition to S/4HANA and deploy SAP landscapes.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is a unified solution that includes application installation, aids to ease the transition to Linux, and superior support. You can eliminate headaches of managing multiple OS solutions by leveraging a single Linux distribution that supports SAP HANA, NetWeaver ERP, BPM, and other applications.

The following features enable faster deployment of SAP systems:

S/4HANA transition
Because all SAP applications and SAP HANA databases will be required to run on Linux in 2025, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications includes support for the Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol environment. This provides a familiar interface for SAP NetWeaver and SAP HANA administrators who need to transition and manage systems that currently run on Microsoft Windows Server. There is also documentation that includes a guide to executing common Windows Server commands in Linux. Enhanced Active Directory integration supports both Linux and Microsoft user IDs and passwords, eliminating the need to rebuild or duplicate accounts.

Installation Wizard
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications provides an end-to-end installation framework that enables an integrated, unattended and automated installation workflow for validated SAP solutions. The installation interface gives administrators a guided workflow including configuration and tuning parameters for SAP HANA, SAP NetWeaver, SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise SAP Business Objects, and SAP Business One applications. This allows you to easily optimize your SAP systems for better performance.

Installation configuration package
SAP application installations include a lot of parameters to be configured to meet the prerequisites required by the installation guides. This requires reading the many different documents found in various SAP Notes. SUSE provides packages to quickly and accurately configure SAP applications for optimal performance and the SAP high availability stack, including support for SAP HANA tailored datacenter integration (TDI) deployments.

SUSE Manager integration
The SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications installation wizard integrates with SUSE Manager providing a single pane of glass to configure and manage SAP environments.
