Globally Available, Rapidly Scalable

Implementing SAP HANA on the AWS cloud using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications provides stable environments for innovation, whether it's for internal line-of-business or external users.

Building the next generation of SAP applications on top of a suite of infrastructure services such as AWS enable businesses to deploy new technology in a highly available, fault-tolerant, and economic way. Take advantage of the many capabilities of SAP HANA along with the flexibility and security of AWS on the recommended Linux for SAP.

Hardened and Reliable

Secure OS and Public Cloud for SAP

At least as important as the security of the SAP HANA database is the security of the underlying operating system. SUSE has a long-running history in IT security for Linux operating systems and offers a comprehensive security package for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server to protect systems from all kinds of security incidents. In order to further improve the security standard specifically for SAP HANA, trust SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on the secure platform with a full portfolio of security compliance guarantees that your application may require.

Optimized for Performance

High Performance Cloud Infrastructure

The X1 instance on Amazon Web Services provides a purpose-built on-demand infrastructure to power a next generation of SAP applications. The goal was to build a fully elastic cloud offering that provides the performance, memory, and CPU to meet the demands of powerful in-memory workloads. These instances also offer high storage throughout with up to 20 Gbps of network bandwidth and up to 10 Gbps of dedicated bandwidth to Amazon Elastic Block Store.

Building with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on the X1 instances provide a best-in-class, scalable operating environment for a number of SAP applications ready for SAP HANA. Whether building a data lake to strategize on new business initiatives or running a mission-critical Business Suite on HANA—you can expect the support and performance of SUSE at the same level of reliability as you would an on-premises deployment.

Optimized for Availability

HA for SAP on Public Cloud

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on AWS enables companies looking to simplify the management of high availability (HA) for the often complex SAP landscape.

Detecting and responding to single-component failures within an SAP or SAP HANA environment and the underlying infrastructure is often a key requirement. The HA Extension (HAE) built into SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is able to detect failures, change the network topology, and make sure that another AWS instance hosting a secondary SAP HANA database is brought online. SUSE and AWS jointly engineered the solution to leverage the AWS platform and infrastructure to ensure HA clusters that are resilient and high-performing.

Product of the Year
Storage Product of the Year

To us SUSE has always been at the forefront of innovation, and their product offerings have always stood head and shoulders above the rest.

And now...self-healing, self-managing, distributed software-based enterprise storage. The enterprise needs it, and SUSE has it. This is a brilliant move by a company that should be on the radar of every enterprise business.

The major claim to fame for SUSE is taking open source technology and all of its relevant components and making it available to its customers in an easy-to-install, easy-to-use, supported way.
