Using current multicore commodity hardware, SAP customers who have migrated their SAP applications from legacy UNIX systems have experienced many-fold performance improvements—along with less cost and a smaller footprint.
Red Hat's partner engineering team works with SAP to ensure that SAP products are optimized and certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Red Hat maintains a full-time engineering presence on-site at SAP to bolster the ongoing working relationship between the SAP Linux Lab and Red Hat product development. Plus, SAP has access to pre-release versions of Red Hat software, and Red Hat includes testing of SAP software against development versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux in a nightly test suite provided by SAP.
This relationship has resulted in:
- The addition of SAP-specific features for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
- Joint testing.
- Problem resolution.
- Ongoing performance work by Red Hat.
- Close cooperation between the partners around virtualization.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is designed by—and for—the most security-conscious organizations in the world. We lead the way in developing new security technology, making a secure operating system architecture affordable and mainstream.
High-level Linux security
Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux), a Red Hat Enterprise Linux feature, was developed in coordination with the open source community and the National Security Agency to provide the highest levels of security for the Linux operating system. This kind of functionality was previously available only in special-purpose operating systems for the military.
Preventing memory-based attacks
Red Hat Enterprise Linux features many innovations to prevent buffer overflow and other memory-based attacks:
- Fortify Source
- Stack-smashing protection (canary values)
- Pointer encryption
- SELinux memory protection
