SUSE and SAP work together to create a powerful SAP Cloud Platform as announced during the Susecon 2017 conference in Prague. SUSE OpenStack Cloud and SUSE Enterprise Storage are important building blocks.
The combination of SUSE and SAP makes the SAP Cloud Platform in SAP data centers more powerful, according to the two partners. SUSE OpenStack Cloud and SUSE Enterprise Storage are key elements in the SAP Cloud Platform, delivering robust infrastructure services that run applications that allow companies to collect, manage, analyze, and use all kinds of information, and connect to business systems.
SAP Cloud Platform is SAP’s agile platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for digital transformation with extensive application development services and capabilities that enables companies to collect, manage, analyze, use, expand and connect information with all types of business, and to innovate new edge scenarios to continuously update and promote companies. It enables customers to achieve business agility, create a truly integrated and optimized business and speed up digital transformation across the business – all without the need to maintain or invest in infrastructure, SAP says.
SUSE OpenStack Cloud is an automated cloud computing platform that enables organizations to quickly deploy and manage quickly accessible, mixed hypervisor private clouds. The latest version is based on the release of OpenStack Newton. SUSE Enterprise Storage is an intelligent software-defined storage management solution, powered by Ceph technology. It enables IT to transform their enterprise storage infrastructure to seamlessly adapt to changing business and data requirements by delivering cost effective, highly scalable and resilient storage using commodity off-the-shelf servers and disks, reporting SUSE .
