AWS lets users run SAP apps directly on SUSE Linux

Partnership brings SUSE's Enterprise Server for SAP into Amazon's cloud

Businesses can now buy SUSE's Linux Enterprise Server for SAP apps directly from the Amazon Web Services (AWS) marketplace.

SUSE and AWS said their closer collaboration means customers of both can benefit from dual business support and more flexible payment options, with organisations only paying for the services they use and scalability across the organisation.

"Tens of thousands of enterprises around the world, spanning major industries, count on SUSE for their mission-critical computing environments, including those running SAP workloads," said Naji Almahmoud, SUSE vice president of global alliances.

"Our commitment to those enterprise users is unwavering, and this expanded collaboration demonstrates how AWS and SUSE are continually finding ways to enhance the customer experience for business-critical applications on the cloud using SUSE Linux for SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA."

The partnership between SUSE and AWS means businesses can save costs and make use of Reserved Instances as they increase the use of their SAP apps on AWS, the firms said.

They can also get up and running quickly, making use of the AWS SAP HANA Quick Start tool, which helps provision and configure the infrastructure required to deploy SAP HANA in less than an hour. Everything is set up using AWS, SAP and SUSE best practice. Of course, first a company would need to decide whether running their SAP platform in the cloud suits their business needs or not.

"We are excited to extend our relationship with SUSE to offer SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on AWS Marketplace," Bas Kamphuis, general manager of AWS, said.

"Our customers will receive Amazon Business support by default, providing a single point of contact. Further, the collaboration is designed to help customers deploy and scale SAP HANA workloads on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications more easily and at a more compelling price point."
