SAP and ARM CPU Platform (Aarch64, ARM64, ARMv8, Apple Silicon, AWS Graviton)

Hi,

the ARM CPU platform is becoming more and more mainstream. Our mobile phones are using the ARM CPUs for a long time now. More and more servers and notebooks are also getting the CPU platform. Apple is now even using ARM. Soon there will be MacBooks with a ARM CPUs.

My question is: What is SAP's strategy for this topic?

Currently you are looking for people to help you port HANA to ARMv8. Is support also planned for other software products (SAP NetWeaver, SAP S/4, ...)?

To give a few actual examples from the point of view of a Basis-Admin or developer:

  • SAP Router (niping)
  • RFC SDK
  • CLI for SAP Cloud Platform (sapcp CLI)
  • Cloud Connector
  • SAP JVM (SapMachine)

Many people will probably need this software soon for macOS and Linux on ARM.

Can you please publish or link more information about this. I can't find anything about it.

Best regards
Nils
