I have a customer planning to migrate their on-premise SAP system to azure.

They use Oracle ASM with oracle linux. But now SAP does not support Oracle ASM on azure. (note: 1928533)

On the other hand, SAP supports Oracle ASM on aws, and Oracle Supports ASM on azure.

Is there any technical issue to support Oracle ASM on azure? or Is there any plan to support Oracle ASM on azure?

Best Regards,

Naritoshi AOKI

This is self follow up,

I found these notes.

From these notes , I think the restriction about Oracle ASM on Oracle linux of Azure is not investigated deeply.

Since historically Windows(SWPM) does not support ASM, I assume that it was judged that Oracle Linux on Azure does not support it.I hope SAP to review and remove the restriction about ASM on Oracle linux of Azure.

SWPM supports SAP installations with Oracle ASM based on SAP NetWeaver 7.00 and above on Unix/Linux platforms.

SWPM does not support an SAP installation with Oracle ASM on Windows platforms.
