We’re excited to be talking about the recent announcement that SUSE will expand its partnership with SaltStack and collaborate on next-generation systems management and automation/orchestration that promises to deliver new levels of agility and control to the software-defined data center.
Customers will benefit from automated management of virtually all data center resources at massive scale. SaltStack Enterprise and SUSE Manager 3 running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server already deliver intelligent, event-driven orchestration of heterogeneous enterprise IT systems, and this collaboration will further integrate and extend these capabilities through upstream Salt development to optimize cloud, container and storage resources, thus enabling digital business.
What could be more exciting!?!
SUSE Manager is the top open source infrastructure management solution, allowing IT to reduce complexity and regain control of IT assets, ensure compliance with internal security policies and external regulations, and optimize operations while reducing costs.
SaltStack Enterprise supports large multi-master environments in addition to providing enterprise-grade features such as user access control, job and system audits, data persistence and dashboards, and event filtering. SaltStack Enterprise enhances the capabilities of SUSE Manager 3 by automating the management of virtually all data center resources, including cross-platform support for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and UNIX.
As Mary Johnston Turner, IDC research vice president for enterprise system management software, states, “This SUSE-SaltStack collaboration holds the promise of delivering a broad and sophisticated set of automation and orchestration capabilities across complex data center environments, thus providing real business value. This puts them in a strong position to demonstrate leadership in this space.”
You’re going to be hearing more about these advanced automation and orchestration capabilities in the weeks and months ahead, so stay tuned!
