SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is now available as the operating system for SAP solutions on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), becoming the first supported Linux system for SAP HANA on Google Cloud.
According to SUSE, this option will help enterprise customers be more agile and reduce operating costs by only paying for what they use.
“SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on GCP highlights a key benefit of the operating system – customers saving time, effort and budget as they implement SAP landscapes, including on premise and now on demand,” said Naji Almahmoud, vice president, global alliances, SUSE. “SUSE software-defined infrastructure solutions enable customers to meet the changing demands of the digital economy, and support for Google Cloud Platform gives businesses flexibility to choose the deployment method that meets their needs with the leading Linux for SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA.”
With the addition of Google Cloud Platform, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is now available on three major cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
Brenton O’Callaghan, regional vice president of SUSE partner Bluefin North America, is positive about this new option.
“Bluefin Solutions believes the capability to run SAP on the Google Cloud Platform is going to drive innovation and disruption that will benefit enterprise customers for years to come. As a SUSE partner and one of the only service providers in the world to have experience running SAP on the three major public cloud providers, we believe there is no better time for enterprise customers to build public cloud into their digital roadmap.”
