Suse recently entered an agreement to expand its relationship with Amazon Web Services, allowing Suse Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications to be sold directly on the AWS Marketplace. AWS customers that are running SAP workloads on Suse Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications -- a leading platform for SAP Hana and SAP S/4Hana -- will get integrated and streamlined support from AWS and Suse under the agreement. AWS customers will be able to buy the Suse Linux Enterprise on demand, so they will pay only for what they use.

One of the statements grabbed my attention:
Customers must move to SAP Hana and SAP S/4 Hana before 2025, when SAP will end support for any database, including SQL Server, Oracle DB and IBM DB2

What database will customers be migrated/forced to use? Postgres or Mysql?

Just curious...

I'm not an SAP expert, but I believe the database is SAP's proprietary HANA in-memory database and engine.

It has been a fairly transparent goal of SAP's to move customers away from other vendor's database products onto a pure SAP-based solution (business suite + database combined).

What do you think of commercial spaceflight?
It's the best hope for advancing space exploration.
It's little more than a hobby for billionaires.
It will result in highly profitable new industries, like space mining.
It will dramatically increase space junk and pollution.
It will offer the opportunity to establish a new way of life in space colonies.
It should be heavily regulated by governments.
