SUSE announced the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 15, SUSE Manager 3.2 and SUSE Linux Enterprise High Performance Computing 15 with a focus on helping customers innovate in this era of rapid digital transformation while meeting the needs of multimodal IT.
“As organisations around the world transform their enterprise systems to embrace modern and agile technologies, multiple infrastructures for different workloads and applications are needed,” said Thomas Di Giacomo, SUSE CTO. “This often means integrating cloud-based platforms into enterprise systems, merging containerised development with traditional development, or combining legacy applications with microservices. To bridge traditional and software-defined infrastructure, SUSE has built a multimodal operating system – SUSE Linux Enterprise 15.”
SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 is a modern, modular operating system that helps simplify multimodal IT, makes traditional IT infrastructure more efficient and provides an engaging platform for developers. As a result, customers can easily deploy and transition business-critical workloads across on-premise and public cloud environments.
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 platform uses a “common code base” to ensure application mobility across multimodal IT environments. SUSE’s “Modular+” architecture addresses new challenges customers are facing when trying to innovate within existing, traditional IT infrastructure and make it more efficient. With a focus on the developer community, SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 accelerates the enterprise transition from free developer subscription or community Linux (openSUSE Leap) setups to production deployments of fully supported enterprise Linux.
Built for Linux, the latest release of SUSE Manager delivers new features focused on lowering costs, improving DevOps efficiency, and easily managing large, complex deployments across IoT, cloud and container infrastructures. It helps customers improve DevOps efficiency and meet compliance requirements with a single tool that manages and maintains everything from edge devices to Kubernetes environments. SUSE Manager makes managing large, complex deployments easier with new extended forms-based UI capabilities.
Businesses today are recognising that a high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure is vital to supporting the advanced analytics (such as AI and machine learning) and simulated modeling applications of tomorrow. SUSE is launching SUSE Linux Enterprise High Performance Computing 15 as a separate product to address this growing market with a comprehensive set of supported tools specifically designed for the parallel computing environment, including workload and cluster management.
With an architectural emphasis on building bridges, SUSE recognises the need for organisations to protect current IT investments while transforming and modernizing their IT infrastructure. These latest product releases continue to deliver on that vision by empowering enterprises to be successful in their IT transformation journey at their own pace.
SUSE Manager 3.2 is now available, and SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 will be available mid-July. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 and SUSE Manager 3.2 images will also be available on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
