The next step in the expanded Fujitsu | SUSE Relationship
Digital transformation is a journey that can be daunting given that an organization will be reworking business functions, processes, activities, assets, models, and activities, so they are interconnected. Most companies will need trusted technology partners to help realize this vision since technology is one of the key drivers towards digital transformation.
A key technology used in transformation is cloud – whether it is on or off premise or a combination of both. In fact, most businesses will use a mix of on and off premise – a hybrid approach. So as companies start tackling digital transformation, they need to look for a solution that provides a smooth path towards migrating their on-premise systems to the cloud.
SUSE and Fujitsu have just the solution. Fujitsu just announced its PRIMEFLEX line-up of Integrated Systems – PRIMEFLEX for SUSE OpenStack Cloud – which is “designed to provide enterprises with a foundation for their future investments in open source-based cloud computing.”
Late in 2016, SUSE and Fujitsu announced the strengthening of their strategic alliance and this is one of the first solutions to be introduced from the expanded relationship. This solution is an out-of-the-box system that can be deployed on-premise quickly. One of the main benefits of this solution is peace of mind because Fujitsu and SUSE have taken the guesswork out of getting an OpenStack environment up and running.
However, there is a larger benefit beyond an easier to deploy OpenStack cloud. What most people don’t see is how our two organizations work together. SUSE has been working with Fujitsu for a long time, and we have a close engineering alliance with Fujitsu that ensures 99.99% availability and performance predictability across the technology stack. And our integrated product management means solutions are tightly engineered for seamless operation. Our joint solutions may not always be first to market, but they are proven. Proven to be enterprise ready especially in today’s demanding business environment.
So, if you are looking for ways to extend your on-premise environment to the cloud faster, then the safer bet is PRIMEFLEX for SUSE OpenStack Cloud. You can learn more about this announcement here.
