Independent Software Vendors

Expand your offerings and expand your market

The PartnerNet® program offers Independent Software Vendors full access to the tools, training and support you need to build and certify your applications to run on SUSE Linux Enterprise in standard, virtual and cloud environments. As part of our commitment to you, we offer the most interoperable Linux operating system and cutting-edge tools such as the award-winning SUSE Studio.

Our expansive ecosystem of partners is available to assist you in promoting your products, building new relationships and creating more opportunities. Our SUSE Partner Software Catalog represents the largest Linux ecosystem of vendors and applications available today.

We have created SUSE Gallery as a marketplace to showcase partners' software applications or appliances.

In addition, we launched the SUSE Cloud Program which allows ISVs and developers to use SUSE Linux Enterprise in an on-demand model with the leading cloud service provider platforms. With these providers, an ISV application that was certified for a SUSE Linux Enterprise product is also automatically certified for cloud deployment when used with that SUSE Linux Enterprise product.
