Enterprise Linux

Create and Support Agile and Mission Critical Infrastructure

As organizations around the world transform their enterprise systems to embrace modern and software-defined technologies, multiple infrastructures for different workloads and applications are needed. This often means integrating cloud-based platforms into enterprise systems, merging containerized development with traditional development, or combining legacy applications with microservices, essentially leading to a multimodal IT scenario. To bridge traditional and software-defined infrastructure, SUSE has built a multimodal operating system – SUSE Linux Enterprise 15.

The modern and modular OS helps simplify multimodal IT, makes traditional IT infrastructure efficient and provides an engaging platform for developers. As a result, you can easily deploy and transition business-critical workloads across on-premise and public cloud environments. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, based on latest SUSE Linux Enterprise 15, is another example of SUSE's open, open approach helping you optimize and modernize your multimodal IT infrastructure.

  • Simplify multimodal IT by bridging your traditional and software-defined infrastructures. The SUSE Linux Enterprise “common code base” platform helps break the silos of IT systems while bridging traditional and software-defined infrastructure. This enables easy migration of application workloads, improves systems management and eases adoption of containers.
  • Make traditional IT infrastructure more efficient with a Modular+ architecture that enables you to innovate and improve efficiency without disrupting the traditional IT infrastructure pillars—stability, security and proven standards. The Modular+ architecture also helps you to easily deploy and transition business-critical workloads across on-premise and public cloud environments.
  • Accelerate the transition from developer setups to production deployments when you start with a free developer subscription or community Linux (openSUSE Leap) and easily move to fully supported enterprise Linux. Achieve faster time to market by leveraging open source technology, methods, and existing knowledge.

  • The Leading Platform for SAP Applications on Linux

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) for SAP Applications is the premier operating environment for SAP environments, and the only solution that supports both x86-64 and IBM Power Systems servers.

    Boost performance for mission-critical SAP applications with the Linux OS that is performance-optimized and configurable to sustain high performance of SAP applications. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is a reference platform used for SAP application development, and is updated to optimize performance as SAP applications are updated.

  • Built-in high-availability clustering and automated failover for SAP HANA reduces downtime
  • Installation wizard fully automates SAP HANA and NetWeaver installations, and integrates with SUSE Manager
  • Aids to transition SAP landscapes on Microsoft Windows to S/4HANA on Linux

  • The World's Leading Enterprise Linux Platform

    Traditional approaches to solving infrastructure problems don’t work anymore. You need a next-generation operating system for your business.

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) delivers military-grade security, 99.999% uptime, support for business-critical workloads, and so much more. Ultimately, the platform helps you reallocate resources from maintaining the status quo to tackling new challenges. It's just one reason why more than 90% of Fortune Global 500 companies use Red Hat products and solutions. Red Hat Enterprise Linux includes military-grade security technologies - from network firewall control to secure containers for application isolation - to prevent intrusions and protect your data. With the Product Security Team's support of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you can safely deploy apps across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.


    The #1 Linux Platform for SAP HANA

    SUSE and SAP have worked together since 2011 to improve the scalability and high availability of SAP HANA. In fact, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is the recommended and supported OS for SAP HANA, currently running in thousands of SAP HANA installations, including SAP’s own.

    SUSE Linux Enterprise is the leading platform for SAP solutions on Linux and the recommended and supported OS of choice for SAP HANA. It is also a reference development platform for SAP HANA. SAP and SUSE have a close joint testing and development relationship that starts at the SAP Linux Lab in Germany.

    To ensure high availability and disaster recovery, SAP HANA can replicate your SAP HANA system within the same data center or across two data centers. SUSE was the first to automate this process, reducing downtime as compared to manual recovery. In order to further improve the security standard specifically for SAP HANA, SUSE has developed the Operating System Security Hardening for SAP HANA guide and Tech-cast. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications includes a firewall solution specifically for SAP HANA in-memory data.

  • High availability with automated failover, including the SAP HANA database
  • Operating system, and in-memory data security hardening
  • Simplified, automated SAP HANA installation and management
  • Linux page cache management to sustain SAP application performance
  • Unparalleled performance and outstanding uptime
  • Seamless priority support from SAP and SUSE
