Did you hear? SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 launched at SUSECON.


For those who joined us at SUSECON 2016, it’s hard to believe it was just a couple of weeks ago. The event was jam packed with customer success stories, training, certification opportunities, product announcements and more.

One product announcement in particular that had a lot of buzz at the event was the launch of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 2, which enables customers to bring state-of-the-art solutions to market faster, leveraging the latest technologies including:

  • Software Defined Networking & Network Function Virtualization – Telecommunication & advanced enterprise implementations require performance that can’t be met with just Open vSwitch (OVS). The new OVS implementation in combination with the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) runs packet processing workloads in userspace and can process packets up to 10x faster, allowing Telecom providers to efficiently implement virtual network functions.
  • Combined with SUSE Linux Enterprise 12’s broad hypervisor support the new network function virtualization capabilities provide SUSE customers with a complete virtualization solution for cloud and on-premise deployments.
  • Reduce down-time & improve I/O performance utilizing persistent system memory applications using NVDIMM.
  • Implement cost-effective, high performance data analytics – with full support for IBM Power Systems LC and OpenPOWER servers, including bare metal support.
  • Easier access to the latest packages/technologies using new SUSE Package Hub integration with SUSE Customer Center (SCC) that helps customers to seamlessly get modules and package updates.

Service Pack 2 also helps customers enhance reliability, improve resiliency and meet tough security requirements ensuring they can run mission critical workloads with maximum uptime and with proven security.
