SUSE Linux Enterprise Public Cloud partner ecosystem surpasses twenty providers
NUREMBERG, Germany, July 31 — SUSE is now helping more than twenty top global cloud service providers accelerate the growth of their businesses by delivering the platform that over 15,000 enterprises worldwide rely on for their mission-critical computing needs. Unique in the industry, the SUSE Cloud Provider Program offers the flexibility to tailor solutions that fit a wide variety of emerging cloud business models. Included as part of the program are tiered pricing – ideal for on-demand computing delivery, cloud-enabling tools that simplify deployment and management of workloads to the cloud, and a variety of enterprise support alternatives.
Since its inception in 2010, the SUSE Cloud Provider Program has helped companies such as Amazon Web Services, 1&1, Dell, Fujitsu, IBM, Intel, Tencent, SHI, SGI, Verizon and Vodacom Business offer customers of all sizes the ability to run SUSE Linux Enterprise Server via a seamless, pay-as-you-go purchase experience with the widest range of support options.
The latest addition of Windows Azure to the SUSE Cloud Provider Program demonstrates SUSE's growing momentum as the de facto standard enterprise Linux operating system offered by cloud providers. Additionally, with more than 9,200 certified applications from over 1,800 independent software vendors, SUSE continues to offer the broadest application choice among Linux platforms, ensuring that providers' customers have maximum flexibility when deciding where to run those applications -- on premise or in the cloud.
"SHI Cloud is a logical, transparent extension of an organization's infrastructure that doesn't require replacing existing systems," said Henry Fastert, chief technologist and managing partner of Enterprise Solution Services at SHI. "This is why SHI has chosen to work with open standards based partners with deep industry expertise such as SUSE in order to help customers utilize the industry's best available technologies to build unique clouds that support business needs."
SUSE also offers tools that simplify the development and deployment of cloud services. SUSE Studio is a tool that makes it easy to build optimized SUSE Linux Enterprise operating system images and application workloads with just a few mouse clicks. Through the SUSE Cloud Provider Program, partners can offer SUSE Studio to their customers to create and deploy applications to the cloud in minutes. SUSE also enables partners to offer their own version of SUSE Studio within their own cloud, further differentiating their service offerings.
"In the highly competitive cloud computing market, service providers are looking for any advantage to be able to offer maximum flexibility and return on investment to their customers," said Doug Jarvis, cloud solutions marketing manager, SUSE. "The licensing model for the SUSE Linux Enterprise product portfolio and tools such as SUSE Studio are tailored to fit the cloud business model so providers can easily deliver customized Linux cloud services with enterprise-class service level agreements."
