SUSE releases enhancements to CaaS platform

By

Germany-based SUSE Linux has released SUSE CaaS Platform 3, the third iteration of its container as a service platform.

A statement from the company said the platform included changes in Kubernetes to provide an enterprise-class container management solution that would allow application development and DevOps teams to deploy, manage and scale container-based applications and services.

In March, Peter Lees, SUSE's chief technologist for the Asia-Pacific region, told  iTWire that containers would be the major focus for the company as it looked to consolidate its position in the region.

The CaaS has three components, according to one of its developers, Simone Arsene: microOS which was derived from SUSE's enterprise Linux distribution, Kubernetes, which handles the management or orchestration of the containers, and the container engine Docker plus the management utility Salt which was used for setting up all the components.

“In this era of digital transformation, IT organisations need to be more agile than ever,” said Gerald Pfeifer, vice-president of Products and Technology Programs at SUSE.

“Properly deployed, Kubernetes leads to agility. But before application teams can use Kubernetes, the platform itself needs to be in place. It needs to be secure, well controlled and maintained.

"SUSE CaaS Platform helps enterprises provide and consume Kubernetes more easily with a complete solution that is designed with the platform operator, as well as the platform user, in mind.”

Massimo Montecchi, chief executive and chief technology office of IT solutions provider BS Company Srl, said: “Bringing Kubernetes to life is more than just installing the software and turning it on. We needed to integrate the platform into our larger IT environment, including systems, processes and cloud infrastructure.

"It was straightforward with SUSE CaaS Platform, which helped us get Kubernetes up and running quickly. SUSE CaaS Platform also gives us enterprise-grade reliability and flexibility that are critical in this era of ever-evolving technology and innovation.”
