New SUSE enterprise Linux release designed to be modular


The new enterprise release of SUSE Linux is designed as a modular system so that it can be used by companies and organisations of all sizes, the company behind it says.

Germany-based SUSE Linux announced the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 15, SUSE Manager 3.2 and SUSE Linux Enterprise High Performance Computing 15 last week.

A statement from the company said the SLE 15 used a common codebase to ensure applications could be moved across multimodal IT environments. It is also claimed to help businesses make the transition from the use of the community distribution, openSUSE, to the enterprise version that was fully supported by the company.

The new version of SUSE Manager has new features that focus on lower costs, improving DevOps efficiency, and managing large, complex deployments across IoT, cloud and container infrastructures.

Releasing SUSE Linux Enterprise High Performance Computing was launched as a separate product in order to support advanced analytics, such as AI and machine learning, and simulated modelling applications that are becoming more common in the enterprise.

“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 SUSE chief technology officer Thomas Di Giacomo.

“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.”
