Alibaba Cloud Offers Customers Wide Variety of Options to Run SAP Solutions

Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group and an SAP global technology partner, announced at SAPPHIRE NOW that it offers a wide variety of options for customers to run their SAP solutions on Alibaba Cloud, on operating systems of their choice and on SAP HANA. Enterprises can leverage Alibaba Cloud's robust infrastructure and computing power to realize greater business value through Alibaba Cloud's global infrastructure.

Alibaba Cloud and SAP China started a strategic partnership back in April 2016. Alibaba Cloud was Certified for SAP HANA on Alibaba Cloud's enterprise-level memory-enhanced ECS in August 2017, and was one of the first in China to pass SAP's certification of running SAP Business Suite (on SUSE Linux) on Alibaba Cloud in Dec 2017.

In 2018, Alibaba Cloud has quickly expanded its support to SAP systems including:

  • Supported on Linux - SAP HANA, SAP MaxDB, and SAP ASE
  • Supported on Windows - SAP MaxDB, SQL Serve to run SAP Business Suite, and other applications on the SAP Application Server ABAP

Alibaba Cloud also passed the certification to run SAP Business One on HANA on Alibaba Cloud.

Alibaba Cloud and SAP will continue to work together to offer joint technical solutions, ensuring our customers with high serviceability and supportability.

More information on Alibaba VM types can be found on Alibaba Cloud's official website.

"Partnering with SAP adds to Alibaba Cloud's robust global IT infrastructure and computing strengths, while extending the range of world-class enterprise applications for both our sets of customers," said Danny Liu, General Manager of Global Technology Partnership, Alibaba Cloud. "The partnership is bringing a versatile, one-stop cloud computing environment by Alibaba Cloud's reliable, high-performance and secure infrastructure, interoperating with enterprise-level business application solutions from SAP."

Since December 2017, more than 70 joint customers have deployed the service. Now, Alibaba Cloud is engaged in an active partnership with SAP to deliver enhanced ERP services in cloud environments, helping enterprises drive their digital transformation. The two companies are jointly exploring in product and development in the innovative areas.

SAP products and solutions on Alibaba Cloud will be showcased at the Alibaba Cloud Booth 1133 throughout the 2018 SAPPHIRE NOW from June 5-7, 2018.
