SUSE has announced that SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is now a SAP endorsed application and is available on SAP Store. Earning SAP’s premium certification underscores SUSE Linux Enterprise Server’s proven results and helps reinforce customer confidence to deploy SAP solutions more efficiently.
The collaboration also brings together top container management specialists across SUSE and SAP to support the development of deployment tools and customer backend integration for on-premises customers.
Paul Devlin, chief customer officer at SUSE, said: “SUSE continues to strengthen the long-lasting partnership with SAP and give customers confidence to deploy SAP solutions faster and more efficiently. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is the leading Linux platform for SAP HANA, SAP S/4HANA solutions and SAP NetWeaver, and SUSE Linux Enterprise is also the development operating system for SAP HANA. We are honoured that our solution has earned distinction as a SAP endorsed app, which will lead to better serving our customers in their transformation journey to an intelligent enterprise.”
SAP endorsed app status for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server reflects many years of partnership and innovation between the two companies.
