Red Hat Expands Collaboration with SAP on Virtualization Projects

Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced new steps in its collaboration with SAP AG focused on virtualization. Red Hat is working with SAP to provide customers with easier deployments of SAP applications on physical Red Hat servers, in virtualized environments or in the cloud. The news comes as Irfan Khan, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Sybase, an SAP company, delivers a keynote address at the Red Hat Summit event in Boston.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization offers a comprehensive virtualization management solution for server and desktop virtualization. With version 3.0, delivered in January 2012, Red Hat delivered the first enterprise-ready, fully open source virtualization platform. Today, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is certified for running SAP business applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With this, customers gain a virtualization platform with the ability to scale to support growing numbers of workloads and users as well as compatibility between Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and the SAP ecosystem, all based on open source virtualization technology.

In two two-tier SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmarks, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and its Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor running the SAP ERP 6.0 application achieved leading performance results. These results were achieved using Red Hat Enterprise Linux on KVM with IBM System x processors and with Cisco UCS systems.

Availability

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 is available for production use with SAP solutions today.
