SUSE and AWS have entered into a multi-year strategic collaboration agreement that will offer migration acceleration programs for SAP customers looking to move to the cloud.

The collaboration between the two companies outlines deliverables and investment areas that will ensure smoother migration of customers’ SAP landscapes to AWS. These deliverables include joint go-to-market activities across sales and marketing, channel enablement and training, and dedicated personnel worldwide.

Kelly Collins, global head of Cloud for SUSE, said: “SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is a leading operating system platform for SAP solutions on Linux, offering a reliable, manageable and highly available platform designed to minimize the time and effort to deploy SAP landscapes.”

“By deepening our collaboration with AWS and their top Global System Integrators, we are making a promise to our customers that we are committed to supporting their most mission-critical workloads being migrated and modernized on AWS.”

Kathleen Curry, director of AWS Strategic Alliances, said: “This multi-year collaboration will facilitate stronger marketing and co-selling programs to complement our respective technologies. SUSE frequently leans in as an AWS collaborator, delivering SAP customers a seamless experience as they migrate operation systems from on-premises to AWS. Our work will help SAP customers modernize, shorten migration timelines, and accelerate time to value.”
