In my famous “French Fry Post” I talked about how easy it is with the pre-installed Salt minion on SUSE’s “Just enough Operating System” (JeOS) to connect a new server with SUSE Manager 3. I promised to follow up with a post that explains another option that’s even cooler: Using Salt to install itself from remote! Well, …

Maybe because of that heritage I’m even more proud than usual that we can present a new customer success story about dm-drogerie markt (link in German only) and their successful migration to an SAP …

In my last post I promised to write more about what I’m calling the Groups & States Pattern. We discovered it more or less by accident when we prepared for the SUSE keynote at SaltConf, as we tried to come up with a simple, yet powerful, demo of what you can do with plain Salt …

SUSE is a technology leader. And the cool thing about it is that we don’t have to make the point ourselves. Our competitors are doing it for us over and over again: We announced at SUSECon 2013 that we are planning to release a distributed storage product based on Ceph. The announcement of one of …
