Red Hat Broadens Global Cooperation With Amazon Web Services and SAP on the Cloud
RaleighNC, United States, September 13, 2011
Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Support for SAP® Applications Available on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud
Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced support for SAP® solutions running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). This complements today’s separate announcement Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 with Support for SAP Business Applications Now Available.
“Today’s announcement fortifies Red Hat’s continued effort to provide customers flexibility in software deployment options and innovations in cloud computing,” said Gus Robertson, vice president of business development at Red Hat.
“Now customers have even more choice in procuring and provisioning Red Hat Enterprise Linux, now SAP-certified and recommended to run SAP applications.”
Amazon EC2 provides highly available, secure, on-demand, pay-as-you-go, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make Web-scale computing easier for developers, commercial ISVs and enterprise IT organizations worldwide. SAP customers can utilize both Red Hat Cloud Access and Red Hat Hourly-On-Demand supported images in all Amazon EC2 regions.
“SAP – together with our global technology partners – is leading the migration to cloud computing,” said Allen Bannon, vice president, Virtualization and Cloud Management, SAP. “Through our cooperation with Red Hat and Amazon Web Services, customers can now benefit from innovations including increased convenience and choice."
“We are pleased to extend our offering of supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux on demand for SAP applications,” said Terry Wise, director of Business Development for Amazon Web Services. “With AWS, SAP customers now have a broader choice of enterprise-class Linux platforms to choose from when they deploy SAP applications on AWS. This represents the ongoing commitment from AWS to provide customers with the enterprise software and support they demand.”
SAP sees a steady stream of customers moving to the cloud with many currently creating their landscape of SAP solutions to become “cloud ready.” Customers are looking for fast-scaling and pay-only-for-what-you-use flexibility associated with cloud computing. Red Hat already delivers an open source, enterprise-ready platform in support of SAP applications on premise. Through this expanded cooperation, customers can leverage Amazon’s EC2 for running SAP applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This will enable customers to utilize the world-class support options available from Amazon, Red Hat and SAP in a collaborative way.
Red Hat and AWS began working together in cloud computing in 2007 with the availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux through Amazon EC2. As Red Hat’s first Premier Certified Cloud Provider, AWS enables customers to use their own Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions or easily purchase Red Hat Enterprise Linux on-demand, pay-as-you-go options through Amazon EC2.
Red Hat provides a comprehensive set of cloud products, services, and technologies to prepare customers’ infrastructures for the cloud. Offering solutions, step-by-step instructions, consulting services, training, and exceptional customer support, Red Hat enables enterprise customers to build, manage, and utilize private and public clouds.
