“Customers have an additional choice for running highly scalable, big data applications in production on AWS,” says Amazon
Red Hat has expanded its Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA remit into Amazon Web Services’ territory, listing the service on the AWS Marketplace.
Customers will also be able to use their own subscriptions to deploy on AWS with Red Hat Cloud Access for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, JBoss Enterprise Web Server, OpenShift by Red Hat and Red Hat Gluster Storage.
According to Jim Totton, vice president of the Platforms Business Unit at Red Hat, the move “answers enterprise IT’s demands for choice” when it comes to deploying big data solutions.
“Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA can fit nearly every enterprise big-data scenario, from the mundane to the extreme, helping our customers leverage the power, stability and flexibility of the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform across their entire infrastructure,” said Totton.
Terry Wise of AWS’ partner ecosystem division said: “We are pleased to see Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA made accessible for AWS customers via a listing in AWS Marketplace. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA available in AWS Marketplace, customers have an additional choice for running highly scalable, big data applications in production on AWS.”
Enterprise Linux was launched in June 2014 in an effort to increase collaboration between Red Hat and SAP. Customers on the AWS Marketplace will now be able to use Enterprise Linux’s on-demand analytics power, whilst allegedly reducing the overall cost of extreme data workloads.
