There is no doubt that SUSE provides leading SAP Solutions on Linux.
SUSE has always proved themselves one step ahead than all other Linux distros.
They are offering SUSE OpenStack Cloud to run SAP Applications to create and manage virtual machines to test and run SAP Applications without having advanced system expertise.
This time, SUSE and Huawei is collaborating to make SUSE Linux Enterprise Server compatible as an operating environment for Huawei's new SAP HANA Appliance Solution. By this , Huawei could continue to serve their customer better by speeding up the real time data analysis and processing data for enterprise customer.
Huawei introduced RH8100 V3 8P Mission Critical Server which is designed based upon RAS 2.0 technology (R : Reliability , Availability, Serviceability ) and in-memory computing would be used for a faster data processing which would be supported by SAP HANA.
Huawei and SUSE is collaborating to include SUSE Linux Enterprise Server as an operating environment for Huawei's SAP HANA Appliance solution on the Mission Critical Server.
Scaling up the Server Trends is the prime objective of the Mission Critical Servers .
It's designed in such a way thus it could handle critical business decisions in faster way.
It's more modular and designed in such a way thus In-Memory computing could support the architecture of this server. It's hot swappable parts provides the privileges of maintaining and swapping hardware parts keeping everything running. The server supports upto 32TB SAP HANA Database System. Have a look at it's specification as shown below .

Maximum 144 CPU cores, 12 TB Memory , 24 HDDs and 18 PCIe slots makes it's hardware components hot swappable with 2X performance because its 144 cores. Huge local storage make's it compatible for Big Data and SAP HANA applications.
As we all know , SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Edition is the most compatible operating environment with SAP HANA, that's also a big reason that Huawei and SUSE is working together to make Huawei's SAP HANA appliances most fit with the newly introduces Server. With all this , the server would have the capability of OLTP 2X than ever, Virtualization 2x upto 300 VMs and OLAP upto 6TB supported by SAP HANA.
