Suse is very well suited for running sap workloads. It has never failed us so far, the package selection and documentation make it very easy to set up our servers and run our workloads without any hiccups. As I personally see it, Suse is an enterprise Linux distribution, it is best suited for supported industry applications. It might be less suited for running open-source (unsupported) applications

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server(SLES) is definitely a comparable choice to RedHat considering the cost benefits that we have here. It is well suited for production enterprise systems. It has almost a 13-year lifecycle which makes it a reliable choice for the long term players in the market. Try things with SUSE opensource and then port to SLES, which basically gives you a testing ground to mess things up and not cause any harm.

Any type of SAP installation, especially in Power 9 scenarios. Even with the IBM acquisition, it is going to take some time for Redhat to catch up. It is currently the de-facto OS for SAP workloads on Power (we currently use it exclusively on this scenario).
It's suited any time where being able to upgrade the OS from one version to the next is critical. We've done upgrades without major issues from SLES 11 to SLES 12 in a very straightforward manner.
Most popular packages are present, and it has a consistent package base. The basic patch deployment tool is included as well. Cost can be an issue at higher levels of support, and you cannot mix support levels. SLES for SAP comes at a premium cost.

If the issue is an uncommon one, you will have a bit of a time trying to escalate to support.
Yast is cumbersome at times; great at some tasks, horrible for others.

Suse Linux Enterprise would be the perfect operating system for any critical business system application like SAP HANA. Linux is really awesome for server and beats the Windows servers in terms of the overall value, cost, and features. It would be perfect for any size business and should definitely be in the shortlist of operating system for just about any business critical system.

It is well suited for an administrator team that is accustomed to pointing and clicking on items in a GUI fashion. All of the configurations can be performed this way if one chooses not to go the CLI method way. SUSE Linux works well with Microsoft environments and it's really easy to join a SUSE Linux server to an AD infrastructure as a member server and configure user authentication so that the server's resources can be accessed.

Suse Linux is specifically designed for enterprise servers, mainframes, and workstations. You can also install it on desktop computers for personal use. It is well suited in an environment where you have large scale implementation of Linux. Applying security patches or installing packages across systems is very easy.

SLES proved to be a very extendable product, supporting most, if not all of our infrastructure. The major reason I chose to use the product was the extensive enterprise peripheral support. Out-of-the-box SLES supported all of our HBAs and hardware specific components.
Any company looking to standardize on a Linux platform should seriously review this product. It has served me well for many years.
