IBM LinuxONE and SUSE – Key Components of Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure for Every Business


Hybrid CloudEvolved for the digital economy, IBM LinuxONE gives businesses the security of confidential computing, lightning-fast processing speed, and unparalleled reliability and availability features.

IBM recently announced IBM LinuxONE III Express, the latest edition to the LinuxONE family, and for the first time, LinuxONE is available in an off-the-shelf configuration that is designed to get clients up and running quickly. This new system, coupled with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for IBM Z and LinuxONE, now affords every business the security, performance, and open source critically needed in an open hybrid cloud. It presents a viable consolidation platform that both saves on licensing costs and enables technologies such as virtualization, cloud, containerization, and cryptography that are vital to surviving in today’s economy.

Partnerships matter

For more than 20 years and throughout the evolution of IBM Z and LinuxONE systems, SUSE has been a key partner of IBM. And, with this release of LinuxONE III Express, SUSE is pleased to offer our SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for IBM Z and LinuxONE to an even wider audience. From our openSUSE Leap to our enterprise SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, SUSE software runs seamlessly on this platform.

And, as SUSE works to build and support Rancher products on IBM Z and LinuxONE in 2021, we will be bringing our best-in-class Kubernetes platform to an even greater audience to complement the introduction of this new LinuxONE model. Read more about that here.

So, if you are starting your IBM Z and LinuxONE journey with IBM LinuxONE III Express, we invite you to start with SUSE. SUSE solutions accelerate your digital transformation by allowing for the rapid instantiation of resources and scaling of enterprise applications. Our world-class support, enterprise-grade operating system, and our approach to open source give you a modern platform for building your digital organization in the new economy and the unparalleled choice to innovate everywhere.
