SUSE aims arrows at SAP HANA at Azure

SUSE has announced the first Enterprise Linux image for SAP HANA ‘large instances’ on Azure. The SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) for SAP Applications image on Azure must provide consistent build and management capabilities on Azure.

SAP HANA Large Instances on Azure are hardware configurations developed specifically for SAP HANA workloads that require more than 0.5 TB of memory.

SUSE states that it worked with Microsoft to support mission-critical workloads for SAP HANA environments up to 60 TB in size, with the stability and reliability of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications, writes IT Wire.

“This is a customer-driven solution developed in conjunction with Microsoft to provide the advanced high availability and storage security of SAP HANA Large Instances that customers need,” said Daniel Nelson, vice president of Products and Solutions at SUSE. The SAP-certified platform for Azure is pre-configured to make customers “productive” faster.

Intel Xeon Scalable

SUSE also announced support for the second generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, which is officially codenamed “Cascade Lake”. According to Thomas Di Giacomo, president of Engineering, Product and Innovation, organizations are under increasing pressure to become more agile and economically efficient in order to grow, compete and survive.

“We help them to use today’s explosive innovation as they embrace hybrid and multicold, as well as on premise environments to drive and enable their digital transformation. Intel’s persistent memory technology will create new applications for data access and storage, where memory database solutions are just one application.”

SUSE announced last month that it has regained its independence for the first time since 2004. The company was acquired for $2.5 billion from Micro Focus by growth investor EQT. In the past, the company was owned by Novell and Attachmate. Under Micro Focus, the company became an independent division.
