Enterprise Linux offerings provider SUSE has released an early development snapshot of its OpenStack-powered cloud infrastructure offering.
SUSE Cloud powered by OpenStack is a fully configured, OpenStack-powered appliance based on OpenStack’s latest version, Diablo and it is also the first public preview of SUSE’s hypervisor agnostic, operating system neutral, open source cloud infrastructure offering.
The SUSE Cloud powered by OpenStack release, offers customers and partners a glimpse into how quick and easy it can be to build, deploy and manage both private and public cloud infrastructure.
Organisations can improve resource utilisation and business agility while reducing risk by using cloud offerings from SUSE.
Based on OpenStack’s interrelated cloud computing platform components, SUSE’s cloud infrastructure offering runs on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and leverages existing and proven tools such as SUSE Studio and SUSE Manager.
Many of the complex, cost-prohibitive and risky issues associated with cloud computing can be removed with the integration of SUSE tools, platform and OpenStack, coupled with SUSE’s extensive experience delivering enterprise-class, open source offerings.
SUSE president and general manager Nils Brauckmann said SUSE has successfully commercialised enterprise-quality open source software for twenty years.
"Today we help over 13,000 customers run their business more efficiently and cost effectively on SUSE Linux Enterprise along with our technical support that is recognised in independent studies as the best Linux* support in the industry. What we have done with SUSE Linux Enterprise, we will now do for OpenStack-powered cloud infrastructure," said Brauckmann.
OpenStack Project Policy Board Rackspace Cloud Founder and chairman Jonathan Bryce said OpenStack continues to gain momentum as a viable, open source cloud standard.
"We welcome SUSE’s participation in the OpenStack community and look forward to its contributions toward hardening its components and delivering enterprise-quality solutions."
