Based on our recent conversations with enterprise IT Managers and Directors, we’ve seen many pains involved with managing the IT build process. It seems that installing, customizing, and maintaining control over software deployments keeps them awake at night. So how does the SUSE Appliance Toolkit cure this insomnia?

In the wake of today’s announcement, I thought I would take a moment and share some of the reasons why we believe people will care about the SUSE Appliance Toolkit, which includes:

  • SUSE Studio Onsite: Quickly build and download software appliances
  • WebYaST: Remotely configure appliances with this web-based tool
  • SUSE Lifecycle Management Server: Securely maintain control over software deployment updates

In the end, the SUSE Appliance Toolkit matters because it helps enterprises reduce the complexity and costs associated with deploying and maintaining software in any environment (physical, virtual or cloud). Maybe more sleep is in people’s future.

Are you in enterprise IT and face any of these challenges?
