Oracle Corporation and SAP SE support our joint customers with long-standing reseller and customer support agreements that provide enhanced access to Oracle hardware and software technologies and world-class customer service—on premises in your own data center as well as in the cloud.
SAP and Oracle have agreed to a long-term extension of SAP's global reseller and technical support relationship. For more than 25 years, SAP and Oracle have worked together to provide customers with a supported SAP/Oracle environment, running SAP applications and an Oracle database. During this extension, new and existing SAP customers can continue to acquire Oracle licenses from SAP or Oracle to support their SAP business applications and SAP and Oracle will continue to offer technical support for the combined Oracle/SAP offering.
The Oracle development teams manage and implement joint integration projects for Oracle/SAP database, Oracle Solaris, and Oracle Linux, while Oracle Global Technology Centers for SAP provide presales support, including sizing and IT infrastructure optimization. Oracle Database and Oracle support teams are also onsite at SAP support centers in Tokyo, Palo Alto, CA, and St. Leon-Rot/Walldorf, Germany.
Continuing its Oracle Cloud Platform innovation, Oracle works with SAP to certify SAP NetWeaver applications on the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) Oracle Cloud Platform making it easier for organizations to move Oracle database-based SAP applications to the cloud. Oracle will offer various shapes and grades of its IaaS Bare Metal Cloud Services for Oracle’s high-performance, next-generation IaaS. These offerings enable more customers to deploy and access Oracle Database applications in the cloud, achieving performance, security, and availability similar or equal to their on-premises systems. Compared with Oracle running on a competitor’s clouds, customers can gain performance that scales with ease.
Oracle is the only cloud vendor to provide customers with complete and highly available enterprise application environments in the cloud. Oracle is delivering unique, integrated platform services to midsize and large enterprises that don’t have the expertise or capital to maintain comparable on-premises systems.
Oracle Database 12c
for SAP Certification Roadmap
As of February 2017, Oracle Multitenant, the last major Oracle Database 12c (12.1) option to be certified for SAP environments, is generally available for all SAP on Oracle customers. Customers interested in testing or implementing Oracle Multitenant no longer need to contact SAP in advance to get support and access to the relevant documentation.
Oracle Multitenant databases can be used for all SAP NetWeaver-based applications, with the only exception being that a mix of SAP OLAP (BW) and SAP OLTP systems (ERP, CRM, and other applications) in the same container database is not supported.
For details see SAP Note 2336881.
Optimized for Oracle Database and SAP applications, Oracle’s Engineered Systems reduce the time needed to get SAP landscapes up and running. The systems are factory integrated, configured, and tested and arrive ready for an on-premises SAP installation. Each system is tuned for a specific purpose, reducing the need for customization and infrastructure modifications.
As of April 2016, new Oracle Exadata X7-2 and X7-8 with Oracle Exadata software version 188.8.131.52.0 are certified for SAP applications.
New Oracle Exadata X7 Database Server processors deliver up to 25 percent higher performance than the previous-generation Oracle Exadata X6 processors and the same is valid for the new Oracle Exadata Storage Server, which offers high capacity and extreme flash with new processors that are up to 25 percent faster than Oracle Exadata X6.
