SAP on Microsoft Azure – announcing new certifications including Oracle Database
Posted on September 30, 2014
Continuing the partnership between Microsoft and SAP and our commitment to our customers, we are proud to announce new certifications. SAP on Azure is now certified to run on Oracle Database and SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise. Starting today, you can run SAP Business Suite, Business All-In-One, and NetWeaver Application Server using Oracle DB or SAP ASE on Azure. This new certification builds on the partnership Microsoft and Oracle announced last year. As part of that partnership, Oracle enabled its customers to bring their existing Oracle Database licenses to Azure – with full technical support from Oracle. If you do not have an existing Oracle Database license you want to use, you can pay as you go with a license-included virtual machine image provided and supported by Microsoft. As before, customers can bring their SAP licenses for use in Microsoft Azure. For more details, see this page on running SAP on Azure.
