SUSE Manager Now Supports Amazon Linux!
This is a guest blog from Benjamin Landorff – our esteemed PM for SUSE Manager!
SUSE Manager 4.2, released two weeks ago, now supports Amazon Linux 2. While that alone is good news already, allow me use this opportunity to give a bit of context: I believe that, in a sense, Open Source Software revolves around choices. By giving you options, SUSE gives you the freedom to choose. Even better if it doesn’t tie you to your choices, but allows you to revert them later with as little friction as possible. And an ideal solution allows you to choose not having to choose in the first place – by allowing all those options to coexist.
That’s what we’re trying to achieve with SUSE Manager. The support for Amazon Linux 2, along with support for Alma Linux 8, added in SUSE Manager 4.2, obviously adds options in terms of what Linux distribution to use and manage. And while that’s important, there are other aspects that require choices to be made and that become increasingly important: Support for Amazon Linux 2 also plays an important role in giving you options in terms of the infrastructure you run your workloads on. Be it on premise, in a public or private cloud, or in an hybrid cloud or multi cloud setting, allowing you to deploy your workloads wherever you need. This is exactly what makes it such an important building block in SUSE’s arsenal for giving our customers the flexibility they need. Learn more: https://documentation.suse.com/suma/4.2/
