Step by Step to a Finished Installation
To facilitate the transition to a SUSE Cloud-based SAP system environment, SUSE and B1 systems have created a simple installation guide. This document describes, step by step, how the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications, the preferred Linux platform from SAP, can be made “cloud-ready” and demonstrates, using an example, how users can make an SAP application available on this server in the SUSE Cloud.
The document introduces the following products, provides exemplary implementation recommendations, and explains, in particular, the relevant hardware requirements:
- SUSE Cloud and SUSE Cloud components
