SUSE Start for SUSE Manager: Establishing your Linux management foundation
We've designed SUSE Start for SUSE Manager to help you quickly deploy your SUSE Manager solution. By rapidly installing and configuring SUSE Manager, you'll maximize your Linux investment and immediately begin to benefit from automated Linux server management.
Take the first step
Your IT department is already working at maximum capacity, and your budget is limited. How can you add another deployment when business demands have already strained your resources?
Our experienced SUSE Consultants will help you build a SUSE Manager starter implementation that includes its most-requested and successful features.
We'll start your two-week engagement by interviewing key stakeholders to understand your overall Linux management requirements. Using this information, our team will install and configure your SUSE Manager Server to your production environment. We will design the solution to ensure it delivers maximum return on investment (ROI) as soon as possible.
With a solid foundation in place, you will then be able to explore the other potential benefits of the solution.
Within the two week timeframe, we will modify and customize the SUSE Manager installation to meet your Linux management requirements based on our best practices. With experienced SUSE Consultants, you will benefit from a fast and flexible implementation.
Our experts work with your team to set the stage and understand what you need for provisioning and monitoring within your unique environment. By helping you manage your patch delivery needs, we enable you to deploy SUSE Manager in a timeframe that suits your business requirements.
