Market-leading hardware and software certifications

Software certification

Our ISV partner ecosystem has grown. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is certified for more than 9,000 applications from more than 1800 ISVs. When you run certified workloads, you can be sure that you have committed support service levels available to you. With SUSE priority support, this means 24x7 availability and response times down to one hour.

In case any required workloads are not yet certified/supported, SUSE's ISV enablement team is ready to step up, at no extra cost to you. The team will engage with the ISV and attempt to certify the required workload for SLES. Certification also means that SUSE cooperates with the ISVs on the support back-end in case of a support incident, to avoid any support "ping-pong."

Platform certification

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is built to be the best "perfect guest" operating system on the market. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server has certifications and vendor support commitments from all leading virtualization vendors in the market, such as:

  • VMware
  • Microsoft HyperV
  • Xen and KVM from SUSE
  • IBM zVM

SUSE YES certification—Hardware certification

Although less relevant in hosted environments, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is certified through the SUSE YES Certification program for nearly all branded hardware available in the market. That means that SUSE Linux Enterprise Server has been extensively tested to run on such hardware. The benefit of such a certification is that the hardware vendor and SUSE jointly guarantee the availability of support service based on defined Service Level Agreements.
