SUSE Manager 3.1 available in the Public Cloud
SUSE Manager 3.1 Server and SUSE Manager 3.1 Proxy images are now available in Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, and Microsoft Azure.
SUSE Manager 3.1 is based on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP2 and comes with a bunch of new features and usability improvements. See the Release Notes for details.
As with previous SUSE Manager releases in the Public Cloud, SUSE Manager 3.1 images are BYOS (Bring Your Own Subscription) images, which means instances created from those need to be registered with the SUSE Customer Center.
Public Cloud specific installation steps can be found in the SUSE Manager documentation. Finding the right image in your Public Cloud framework and setting up SUSE Manager 3.1 has not actually changed from SUSE Manager 3.0, so check out Robert’s blog post about the SUSE Manager 3.0 release for more useful information.
If you want to run SUSE Manager 3.1 in Amazon EC2 and are interested in leveraging AWS CloudFormation for automated deployment, you can find a few CloudFormation sample templates in GitHub that you may find useful.
