Germany-based open source company SUSE has announced the release of the first enterprise Linux image for SAP Hana large instances on Microsoft Azure.

The company made the announcement on Wednesday at its annual conference, SUSECON, which taking place in Nashville, Tennessee, this week.

It said the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications image on Azure offered consistent build and management capabilities on Azure.

SAP HANA Large Instances on Azure are purpose-built hardware configurations for SAP HANA workloads that require memory sizes larger than 0.5 terabyte.

{loadpositionn sam08}SUSE said it was collaborating with Microsoft to support mission-critical workloads for SAP HANA environments up to 60TB in size with the stability and reliability of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications.

“This is a customer-driven solution jointly developed with Microsoft to provide the advanced high availability and storage security for SAP HANA Large Instances that customers need,” said Daniel Nelson, vice-president of Products and Solutions for SUSE.

“We’re delivering a SAP-certified platform for Azure that is pre-configured and able to make customers productive faster. SUSE enables enterprises with open source solutions like this to implement best-of-breed digital transformation and realise the hybrid and multi-cloud workload management they require to power continuous innovation, competitiveness and growth.”

K.Y. Srinivasan, general manager, OSS at Microsoft, said, “Our joint customers are using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications as the underlying operating system to ensure a reliable platform that is validated on Azure Large Instances. It represents the innovation that marks our long relationship as we continue to work together to provide solutions that meet demanding enterprise customer requirements.”

SUSE also announced support for 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, formerly codenamed “Cascade Lake.” Earlier this year, it it became the first enterprise Linux optimised for Intel Optane DC persistent memory with SAP HANA workloads.

“Organisations today face increasing pressure to become more agile and economically efficient in order to grow, compete and survive,” said Thomas Di Giacomo, SUSE president of Engineering, Product and Innovation.

“We’re helping them harness today’s explosive innovation as they embrace hybrid and multi-cloud as well as on-premises environments to fuel and enable their digital transformation. Intel’s persistent memory technology will spark new applications for data access and storage, with in-memory database solutions being just one application.

"It is customer needs that drive our joint innovation with Intel, and we continue to partner to serve customers worldwide who are looking to fuel growth by transforming their IT infrastructure.”

Alper Ilkbahar, vice-president and general manager of Datacentre Memory and Storage Solutions at Intel, said, “Intel is focused on data-centric transformation by disrupting the memory and storage hierarchy and helping our customers address the massive increase in data they face daily.

"By collaborating with software leaders like SUSE, we are able to help customers more quickly and confidently deploy Intel Optane DC persistent memory, and reap the rewards of this transformational technology.”
