SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on AWS Outposts

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications both now support AWS Outposts, a fully managed service that offers the same AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.

Simplify and modernize your IT environment through bridging the gap between traditional and software-defined infrastructure to support business-critical workloads that require low latency access to on-premises systems, local data processing, data residency, and migration of applications with local system interdependencies in a hybrid cloud environment.

You can launch Amazon EC2 instances that run on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server through the AWS Management Console and then select the AWS storage, database, and other services that run locally on AWS Outposts. You may purchase images for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications in the AWS Marketplace and select the Outposts region available. You can access the full range of AWS services available in the AWS region to build, manage, and scale your on-premises applications to your Outpost using familiar AWS services and tools.
