It is now possible to run SAP Business Suite, Business All-In-One, and NetWeaver Application Server using Oracle DB or SAP ASE on Azure. Moreover, SAP on Azure is now certified to run on Oracle Database and SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise.
The new development is the result of the partnership between Microsoft and Oracle announced last year. As part of the deal, Oracle enabled its customers to bring their existing Oracle database licenses to Azure. However, the technical support will be provided by Oracle.
“As before, customers can bring their SAP licenses for use in Microsoft Azure.” said Tat Yang Koh, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Cloud Platform Marketing.
If you do not have an existing Oracle database license, you can purchase pay as you go with a license-included virtual machine image provided and supported by Microsoft.
