Good performance, integrates well with Active Directory, and has an inbuilt HANA firewall

What is our primary use case?

We implement SAP solutions for our customers using SUSE Linux Enterprise as the operating system. We perform migrations from on-premises to cloud, where customers ask us to migrate their applications and data. When they want to implement SAP HANA they have two choices, which are SUSE Linux Enterprise and Red Hat.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that there is an inbuilt HANA firewall."
  • "We have had trouble integrating Autodesk with the SUSE manager."

What other advice do I have?

After working with both SUSE and Red Hat, I would absolutely recommend people implement SUSE Linux Enterprise. The features that it provides in terms of security, managing the storage, and encryption/decryption, all contribute to why I recommend it. In summary, this is a good product and it has the features that everyone needs. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Flexible, stable, and works well with web-based applications

What is our primary use case?

We use SUSE Linux on some of the servers that are in our data center.

Pros and Cons

  • "The main feature is that Linux is flexible to work with for most web-based applications."
  • "I would like to see better functionality for interacting with cloud-based systems."

What other advice do I have?

We have a variety of versions, and the one being used depends on the application, or what the developer prescribes. We have the latest version, as well as version 11 and version 12. Overall, this is a good product and I can recommend it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
