Long term support for SLES 11 SP4 for POWER

sles_power_download_icon

I am now the new product manager at SUSE for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) for POWER. SLES for POWER has been extremely successful since the introduction of SAP HANA for POWER in late 21015.

Workloads like SAP HANA require a long support life for the underlying operating systems – in this case SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 4. General support for Service Pack 4 will end March of 2019.

To provide extended support for POWER clients running SLES 11 SP4 for their SAP HANA environments, I created my very first new offering at SUSE,  long term service pack support (LTSS) offering for SLES 11 Service Pack 4 for POWER.
