SUSE and Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, are expanding their global strategic partnership in public cloud services in response to rapidly growing customer demand for cost-effective and flexible SAP workloads on public cloud. Alibaba Cloud has joined the SUSE Cloud Service Provider program, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications are now available in the Alibaba Cloud Marketplace for customers worldwide.
“Modern SAP systems running critical workloads need to meet the highest standards of availability for their SAP services running in customer data centres or on public cloud environments. We are excited about our partnership with Alibaba Cloud, as it offers customers agility, pay-as-you-go capabilities and system availability up to 99.999 per cent. SUSE and partners such as Alibaba Cloud are enabling customers to manage complexity, reduce cost and deliver the business-critical services that are powering their own digital transformation. SUSE works with customers’ preferred partners and vendors in this way to support innovation as well as optimisation of their current infrastructure as they evolve their systems to meet business needs,” said Naji Almahmoud, SUSE Vice President of Global Alliances.
Dajiang Han, Head of Global Alliances, Alibaba Cloud Global, said, “We are delighted to expand our partnership with SUSE. As one of the leading global cloud service providers, Alibaba Cloud has extensive experience in the public cloud sector. Combining with our strong global infrastructure, we aim to continue to deliver more high-quality products and services to our customers worldwide with efficiency and flexibility.”
Additional SUSE products are planned for the Alibaba Cloud Marketplace in the near future.
