Fujitsu expands their relationship with SUSE
It’s an exciting time to be at SUSECON 2016, our annual global end-user conference. Of course everyone is learning about the latest developments in building software-defined data centers on leading Linux, OpenStack and Ceph-based solutions and attending the in-depth sessions on other key technology topics such as Platform-as-a-Service, Docker and containers, NFV, and software-defined networking.
I am especially pleased in the keynote with Katsue Tanaka, senior vice president, Head of Unit, Platform Software BU of our partner, Fujitsu. Our own Michael Miller, president of Strategy, Alliances and Marketing, took the stage to talk with her about our two companies’ commitment to Open Source and our collaboration on innovative new solultions that are truly remarkable. In case you didn’t catch it in person, look for an update to this post where I will publish the link to the keynote when it goes live.
However, the really big news occurred right before the keynote. We announced with Fujitsu that we are expanding our relationship in significant ways. We are committing development, marketing and sales resources and will initially bring hybrid cloud, next-generation cloud infrastructure and mission-critical solutions to market. Pretty exciting!
I’m already looking forward to Fujitsu Forum next week in Munich, Germany, where even more exciting news will be revealed about our partnership with Fujitsu. I’ll be writing to you directly from our booth, sharing the excitement of this year’s theme: Human Centric Innovation – Driving Digital Transformation and how it ties into our latest project with Fujitsu. Stay tuned!
