Simplify Infrastructure Management for SAP Deployments

Minimize infrastructure complexity, drive IT efficiency, and improve service delivery with a growing list of automation features and tools built into the SUSE portfolio

Working with SAP in the SAP Linux Lab in Walldorf, Germany, SUSE engineers are constantly developing new features and tools to help your IT team simplify the management of your SAP environment. Many of these features you already know – including packages (sapconf and saptune) that configure your implementation based on SAP Notes, an Installation Wizard that supports unattended installations, and live kernel patching that automates OS security compliance by patching the Linux kernel while the system runs.


But to keep pace with the complexity of hybrid environments that blend cloud and on-premise options, you need even more automation. SUSE is on the job.


This document highlights new automation features  available  with  SUSE  Linux  Enterprise Server (SLES) for SAP Applications and SUSE Manager.

  • Proactively identify issues with integrated system monitoring dashboards based on open source tools Prometheus and Grafana

  • Analyze cluster behavior and troubleshoot failovers with SAP HANA system replication tooling

  • Automate SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA deployments in the cloud with built-in configuration scripts based on Terraform and SALT

  • Perform fast, error-free upgrades to SAP S/4HANA with features for importing data from sizing tools into Terraform scripts
