Product Description

SUSE CaaS (Container as a Service) Platform is an application development and hosting platform for container applications and services that enables customers to provision, manage, and scale container-based applications and services.

SUSE CaaS Platform consists of 3 key components:

  • Orchestration (Kubernetes)

  • OS for Microservices & Containers (SUSE MicroOS)

  • Configuration (Salt)

SUSE CaaS Platform uses open source Kubernetes to provide production grade container orchestration at scale. Kubernetes provides a complete solution for container based workloads, along with features such as self-healing that enables auto-starting, re-scheduling and replicating containers with ease.

Kubernetes is integrated with the optimized container and microservices Operating System – SUSE MicroOS to provide a unified system that is easy to setup and use. SUSE CaaS Platform takes away the complexity in setting up and deploying Kubernetes.

SUSE MicroOS is a single purpose Operating System, designed for microservices & containers and optimized for large deployments. The word “Micro” in MicroOS signifies microservices. The MicroOS inherits the SUSE Linux Enterprise knowledge while redefining the operating system into a purpose-built, efficient and reliable distribution. As a result, your containerized apps can benefit from enterprise grade se­curity and performance of underlying OS.

SUSE CaaS Platform uses open source Salt to automate the cluster at scale. Salt provides a scalable, fast and secure way of communicating with systems in real time.
