Open source software leader, SUSE, is expanding its collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide increased support and flexible, on-demand pricing to AWS customers running SAP workloads on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications.
SUSE and AWS extended their relationship in an effort to satisfy increasing demand for the agility and cost savings of cloud-based business-critical applications. The previous agreement, which commenced in 2014, allowed AWS to resell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on AWS Marketplace.
“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, vice president, Global Alliances, SUSE. “The marketplace can expect continued collaboration, which will enable us to meet and surpass customers’ demanding requirements for SAP workloads on AWS.”
“We are excited to extend our relationship with SUSE to offer SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on AWS Marketplace,” said Bas Kamphuis, general manager, Amazon Web Services, Inc.
The increased level of collaboration bodes well for the future as many large enterprise customers currently use SUSE solutions to develop, test and run their production SAP workloads on AWS and SAP HANA workloads on AWS have been increasing since the release of X1 and X1e.32xlarge Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).
