News Desk -

SAP SE and Red Hat, Inc., a global provider of open-source solutions, announced an expanded partnership to significantly increase SAP’s use of and support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This collaboration aims to enhance intelligent business operations, support cloud transformation across industries and drive holistic IT innovation.

Building on their long-standing partnership, SAP is gradually transferring parts of its internal IT infrastructure and the SAP® Enterprise Cloud Services portfolio to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, a move made to better accommodate SAP’s changing business and IT requirements. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is becoming the preferred operating system for net new business for RISE with SAP solution deployments as part of SAP’s migration roadmap, which will increase support for the RISE with SAP solution.

Lalit Patil, CTO, SAP Enterprise Cloud Services, SAP SE said “Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers a robust, open infrastructure to support SAP software deployments, providing a consistent foundation for hybrid cloud workloads. We look forward to building on our legacy of innovation together with Red Hat to empower our customers with greater flexibility and resilience across cloud environments.”

A hardened, production-ready Linux operating system for hybrid cloud innovation, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is trusted by global enterprises across industries worldwide. The platform builds on this trust by offering a consistent, reliable foundation for SAP software deployments, providing a standard Linux backbone to support SAP customers across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

By adopting Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SAP’s internal IT systems and SAP Enterprise Cloud Services can achieve increased flexibility to meet current and future technology needs. The combination of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the RISE with SAP solution offers improved performance for RISE with SAP deployments in cloud environments, making it easier for customers to embrace cloud adoption and transformation as they plan for future IT advancements. In the coming year, Red Hat and SAP will work closely together to expand support for RISE with SAP workloads on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and speed up SAP’s wider adoption of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Gunnar Hellekson, vice president and general manager, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Business Unit, Red Hat said “As organizations look to expand business intelligence and analytics systems across the open hybrid cloud, they need an operating system foundation that is tested, validated and trusted for these critical operations on every footprint.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux already serves as a trusted backbone for the global Fortune 500, and we are pleased to further extend this trust to SAP and our joint customers as the common operating system supporting SAP software workloads and business operations.”

To help SAP increase its use of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat is providing dedicated product engineers and on-site support to assist SAP’s engineering and technical teams in standardizing Red Hat Enterprise Linux and improving compatibility between SAP and Red Hat solutions. Through virtual and in-person Red Hat training courses, SAP staff can acquire vital technical skills and gain a deeper understanding of Red Hat’s hybrid cloud technologies via the Red Hat Learning Subscription Premium program, which includes hands-on labs.

By leveraging Red Hat’s scalable, flexible, open hybrid cloud infrastructure, this joint initiative to extend SAP software workloads on Red Hat Enterprise Linux aims to make it simpler for SAP customers to achieve greater business agility, accelerate cloud deployments, and foster business innovation. Based on the RISE with SAP solution supported by Red Hat Enterprise Linux, customers may now more easily streamline cloud transformation initiatives based on SAP software, including SAP S/4HANA.
