Did You Know? – Labs IT and Linux

I was a little suprised last week when I was talking to some developers about Linux and they had no idea that Labs IT has an LTS in operation.  Linux Terminal Server has got to be the easiest way to get a Linux environment, regardless of the SAP desktop you are running. It is intended for Windows users who want to check out what Linux is like, need to test something under Linux, or run an application that is not available on their local workstation.

Labs IT has four Linux flavours available – Redhat, SUSE Enterprise Server, Ubuntu and Debian.

Try out LTS. (Redhat)

Try out LTS (SUSE)

Try out LTS (Ubuntu)

Try out LTS (Debian)

We also have the Image Library for Dev, Test and Crash and Burn, which is a self-service environment of template images of SAP systems and servers: NW 730, LAMP, NJP, and Linux, with more on the way, based on requests from development groups.   For more information on the Image Library go here:–image-library-for-dev-test-and-crash-and-burn

      Hi Irin,

      apologies for the delay in responding....was travelling to Brazil, took two days 🙂

      Not sure what the issue is...I tried all the links again and they are working for me.   I asked my wife to try them (she works at SAP but not in IT) and they worked for her as well.    I will point you direct to the Labs IT Community....

      this is the list of Labs Services we have...half way down is the entry for Linux Terminal Server with associated links.

      Best Regards

      Mike Thompson

      Best regards

      Maybe it's worth mentioning that the links are accessible only within SAP's network, sap.corp isn't resolvable externally.
