Red Hat News, January 5th, 2022
One of the constant challenges that SAP Basis and operating system (OS) administrators face is to keep the hosts that run SAP workloads up to date and compliant.

The usual large size and complexity of the SAP landscapes, together with the critical importance of these workloads, make the process of planning and applying updates on their servers a long and difficult task.

It is not unusual to find SAP ecosystems that are really behind what SAP recommends, which can result in limited support or old OS versions reaching their end of support.
