Companies migrating to SAP S/4HANA need to learn about Linux, the only supported operating system for SAP S/4HANA. SUSE provides the leading solution for supporting and optimizing SAP S/4 HANA on premise and in the cloud – the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications.

Join this live Q&A to get answers to questions such as:

  • Which key features of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications are relevant for SAP S/4HANA?
  • How can I deploy SAP S/4HANA with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on premise?
  • What about deployments in public clouds such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Cloud Platform?
  • How does SUSE’s “Towards Zero Downtime” strategy fit in with SAP S/4 HANA deployments?
  • How do I make SAP S/4HANA highly available using SUSE’s high availability (HA)/disaster recovery (DR) technologies, which are built into the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications?
  • Which SAP HANA System Replication scenarios are currently supported?
  • What about operating system security for SAP S/4HANA, and how does SUSE handle Meltdown and Spectre issues?

As a special bonus, registration to the Q&A provides access to a whitepaper, “Overcome Complexity and Shadow IT in the Digital Enterprise with SAP HANA and OpenStack Cloud.”
