Key Features

Simplify multimodal IT by bridging your traditional and software-defined infrastructures. The SUSE Linux Enterprise “common code base” platform helps break the silos of IT systems while bridging traditional and software-defined infrastructure. This enables easy migration of application workloads, improves systems management and eases adoption of containers.

Make traditional IT infrastructure more efficient with a Modular+ architecture that enables you to innovate and improve efficiency without disrupting the traditional IT infrastructure pillars—stability, security and proven standards.

The Modular+ architecture also helps you to easily deploy and transition business-critical workloads across on-premise and public cloud environments.

Accelerate the transition from developer setups to production deployments when you start with a free developer subscription or community Linux (openSUSE Leap) and easily move to fully supported enterprise Linux.

Achieve faster time to market by leveraging open source technology, methods, and existing knowledge.
