UAE.  Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Red Hat Virtualization now supports the SAP HANA® platform, a market-leading in-memory data and application development platform for running big data workloads.

Red Hat is now able to offer an operating system (Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA) and hypervisor that are both validated for use with SAP HANA environments, providing a level of open standardization to organizations seeking greater choice of virtualized solutions, operational efficiencies and cost reductions in their datacenters.

A scalable, flexible, Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) powered virtualization solution, Red Hat Virtualization provides an open, easy to use, and more secure virtualization platform that can handle diverse workloads, like those posed by big data applications and analysis, without extensive modifications or custom hardware.

By now supporting SAP HANA deployments, Red Hat Virtualization helps customers consolidate physical hardware to reduce IT expenses without losing operating capacity or functionality. Additionally, Red Hat Virtualization forms a solid foundation for innovative technologies, like Linux containers and cloud computing, while remaining easy to integrate with existing IT investments.

Because Red Hat Virtualization forms the basis for many of Red Hat’s next-generation computing technologies, this capability further enables customers to standardize on the Red Hat portfolio for their SAP HANA deployments. This can help to extend the flexibility of customer big data operations and provide more options when it comes to scaling to address extreme computing tasks.

Availability
Red Hat Virtualization support for SAP HANA workloads is available today.
