  1. Hi Claudia.

    Do you know if there any intention of SAP to support HANA on virtual SLES over a Windows Server 2016 with Hyper-V ?

    Best regards

    Cesar Teixeira

    1. Dear Cesar,

      I answer on behalf of Claudia. The current support for HANA on virtualized environments is documented in SAP Note 1788665. And to answer your question: currently there are no plans to support HANA for on-premise Hyper-V virtual environments.

      Best Regards,

      Frank Hildenbrand

      1. Dear Frank.

  2. Dear Frank, 

    In the table "Supported Databases", the Oracle Database with Hyper-V Windows Server 2019 is marked in red (TBD), however, in Sap Note 1329848 inform the Hyper-V 2019 with Guest Operation System Windows Server 2012 R2 is compatible with Oracle 19c (min 19.5.0).

    Is the table "Supported Databases" out of date? Or is there any other technical issue?

    Best regards,
