The version 3.0 is now certified for running SAP business applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the company said.

Customers can now support workloads and users as well as scale the compatibility between Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and the SAP ecosystem, all based on open source virtualisation technology.

In two-tier SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmarks, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and its Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor running the SAP ERP 6.0 application achieved increased performance results.

"With Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization available for production for use with SAP solutions, we’re now able to offer these benefits to joint Red Hat and SAP customers worldwid," Cormier said.
