Suse has announced the launch of its first commercially supported private cloud solution, Suse Cloud.
The new solution is powered by OpenStack and is an automated cloud management platform that enables the deployment and management of an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) private cloud.
Suse Cloud integrates with Suse Studio and Suse Manager to allow companies to manage applications and workloads across private and public clouds.
"Open source technologies such as KVM, Xen and Linux have already found great success in the cloud, and OpenStack stands to be another piece of the puzzle," says Gary Chen, research manager, Cloud and Virtualisation System Software, IDC.
“SUSE Cloud is a positive result of SUSE’s participation in the community that will help deliver enterprise-quality OpenStack solutions to its strong customer base as well as make the open source cloud more accessible to a broader set of users,” says Jonathan Bryce, chairman of the OpenStack Project Policy Board.
Suse Cloud includes 24x7 worldwide technical support and is fully integrated into Suse update processes.
“Over the past twenty years, we've accumulated the strength, capabilities and resources to build a solid foundation our customers can rely on in order to succeed in the next twenty years and beyond in three strategic areas: enterprise Linux, cloud, and integrated systems," says Nils Brauckmann, president and general manager of Suse.
