What these WIKI pages contain are the historical certification reports, generally from before when SAP acquired Sybase.  The information is most likely of use for customers who are still running on older versions of ASE.  For the certification status of the current actively supported versions (ASE 15.7 and ASE 16.0) please refer to the Product Availability Matrix (PAM) ( . 

Certifications for the 15.5 and 15.7 version are listed under the major family version 15.0 in the "Version" column.  For ASE, as long as the O/S is covered by ASE certification (eg., Sol 10 or 11 are both supported by ASE per SMP), then we support it.The sub-capacity supporting VM can be found at this link.  

Certification information for SAP ASE is published in the Technical Release Information under the Product Availability Matrix (PAM). Certification means Support.   Unless otherwise specified, for a certified UNIX O/S version X.Y, where X indicates the major release number and Y indicates the minor release number or a release update, version X.Z where Z > Y is supported. For instance, ASE 16.0 is certified on Red Hat 6.1 All the subsequent versions of 6.x, including 6.2, 6.3, etc. are supported. Similarly, since ASE 16.0 is certified for Solaris 11 GA (11.0), Solaris 11 update 2 (aka 11.2) is implicitly supported and certified for ASE 16.0.    The same policy applies to IBM AIX TLs and SPs and HP-UX 11i Releases.   Microsoft Windows new “RX” releases such as Win2012 R2 are considered major releases and not covered under this implicit cert policy.   Relevant MSFT Security patches (KBXXXXXXX) are ok to apply.

Exceptions to this implicit ASE Certification policy, if necessary, will be called out in PAM.

Derived Linux kernels, notably (but not limited to) CentOS and Oracle Linux are not certified. However, SAP takes a pragmatic approach in supporting ASE on derived kernels. If an issue can be reproduced on a certified and supported Linux distribution, SAP will make a reasonable attempt to look into the issue. It remains the customer's responsibility to ensure / prove the issue can be reproduced on a certified platform.
