Since joining forces more than 17 years ago, Red Hat and SAP have worked together to champion innovation in the enterprise datacenter, first with Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® for SAP® Applications (Netweaver) and later with Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA®.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP Solutions reflects the growing technical and business collaboration between the 2 companies to take full advantage of our respective strengths: Red Hat’s position as the market-leading provider of open source platforms and SAP’s global strength in business software.
SAP and Red Hat are committed to open source initiatives and understand the best way to benefit from open source solutions, including adhering to industry standards and enabling rapid innovation, interoperability, and customer choice. Red Hat’s open source operating system, virtualization technology, and JavaTM middleware platforms give companies an industry-leading foundation on which to run SAP applications, enabling customers to develop and deploy additional strategic business applications. Whether a customer’s systems are bare metal, virtualized, or in the cloud—or a combination of all 3—the powerful foundation provided by Red Hat and SAP lets them work across these environments with ease.
We offer much more than the operating system: Our solutions, services, and partners create an ecosystem that extends throughout the enterprise and supports development of all types of application, datacenter, and business initiatives.
