Oracle on Linux (on Azure)
I have a client looking to migrate their SAP Estate to Azure (as a precursor to ultimately migrating to S/4HANA).
They are currently using multiple SAP Business suite component – on NW 7.4 on Oracle 126.96.36.199, on RHEL 6.4 – a OSDB combination supported as per the PAM.
However, as per the note 1928533 – SAP Applications on Azure, this combination is not supported on Azure. We have confirmed that the stack Oracle on RHEL is available and supported on Azure, which infers that this is a constraint from SAP.
Please can I inquire on why this constraint is in place?
I am obviously looking to avoid the additional complication (effort, risk, cost, time) that would be incurred by a heterogeneous platform migration.
Many thanks, Parag
