Companies are rapidly moving workloads to virtual and cloud environments to save costs, optimize them, and leverage best-of-breed environments for their enterprise use-cases. To address this requirement, SUSE has optimized SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) for all major virtualization hypervisors.

SLES is truly open and interoperable with the leading hypervisors. It ships with the latest open source virtualization technologies, Xen and KVM and is also optimized to deliver superior performance with VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. SLES is the most affordable operating system to use in these virtual environments, and provides customers with faster time to value, a reduced TCO and great customer experience.

We recently did a study that assessed the ratings for Enterprise Linux Virtualization features The ratings, based on 34 reviews over the past 12 months Server Virtualization market, appeared on the Gartner Peer Insights platform of Gartner Inc. (as of Aug 12, 2021).
