The new release enables the deployment and ongoing management of an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) private cloud
Open source software firm SUSE has released a new commercially supported private cloud application, SUSE Cloud, which is powered by OpenStack.
SUSE Cloud is an automated cloud management platform that enables the deployment and ongoing management of an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) private cloud.
The new application enables enterprises to improve resource utilisation and accelerate the delivery of services by managing and provisioning workloads across a secure, compliant and supported cloud environment.
SUSE Cloud delivers a flexible private cloud infrastructure and includes support for all components of the OpenStack Essex Release.
The new release features automation, self-service and workload standardization capabilities that allow the line of business and IT staff to work closely together.
In addition, IT can respond rapidly accurately to new requirements by automating time-consuming processes that are necessary for provisioning new business services with SUSE Cloud.
With SUSE Cloud, enterprises can achieve a flexible infrastructure, accelerate time to value for new projects, while ensuring stability and security, improve server utilisation and allows enterprises to scale their infrastructure without adding staff.
Integration with SUSE Studio, the image building platform, allows enterprises to deploy and adapt applications for use within a private or public cloud. In addition enterprises can maintain and monitor their Linux environment, inside or outside of the cloud by managing workloads across public or private clouds with SUSE Manager.
SUSE Cloud simplifies deployment and ongoing administration of the physical cloud infrastructure by integrating the Crowbar software framework, an open source project sponsored by Dell.
