Elastic Pricing and more – news for z Systems customers at SUSECon
SUSE and IBM work together to innovate technology and business solutions to address evolving business-critical enterprise needs while controlling IT infrastructure and budget.
Together, SUSE and IBM have been supporting Linux mainframe customers with different hardware and operating system needs since 2000, and we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of Linux on the mainframe – which is also the 15th birthday of the very first Enterprise Linux distribution worldwide – this week at SUSECon.
IBM’s recent LinuxONE announcement of a Linux-only product line is an evolution of IBM’s hardware strategy. LinuxONE, accompanied by the massive push for Linux ecosystem are important milestones for the Linux community to provide customers choice and value.
Today we are announcing a new pricing model to help organization unleash the power and potential of Open Source solutions on the mainframe that we call Elastic Pricing. Elastic pricing allows organizations to quickly and cost-effectively realize the benefits of this new solution with pay-as-you-go pricing based on resources consumption.
With SUSE on LinuxONE, customers have the flexibility and agility to exploit new open source workloads to easily integrate solutions into any existing infrastructure. Also, IBM and SUSE now offer more virtualization choices by enabling the ability to provision virtual machines through the open standards-based KVM hypervisor, just like any Linux server.
