Pay-as-you-go Pricing Model

SUSE offers flexible, per-instance pricing options based on customer use time, so end customers only pay for what they consume. The SUSE OpenStack Cloud Program enables cloud providers to offer SUSE Linux Enterprise Server—the most interoperable platform for mission-critical computing—as part of their flexible on-demand services.

Attract ISVs With Easy Application Stack Building

SUSE Studio can differentiate your platform to Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) who are considering Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings—by delivering the fastest and easiest way for ISVs to build cloud-optimized application stacks.

Largest Linux Application Portfolio

Over 5,000 independent software vendor applications are certified for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server—more than twice as many for Red Hat, and many times more than for Ubuntu. Through the SUSE OpenStack Cloud Program, cloud providers enable enterprises to bring more applications to their clouds.

Flexible Technical Support Options to Ensure Service Levels

As part of the SUSE OpenStack Cloud Program, SUSE enables cloud providers to offer Service Level Agreements to their customers. Cloud providers can enhance their service offerings and increase their revenue and margin opportunities either by providing their own support for SUSE Linux Enterprise instances, backed by SUSE's expertise, or reselling SUSE's number-one rated Linux support.

Complemented by Strongest Cloud Security and Management Products

SUSE complements the SUSE OpenStack Cloud Program with the only suite of products that helps your enterprise customers overcome the most pressing barriers to cloud adoption. With SUSE solutions you can secure customer workloads in your cloud with enterprise-class identity and access management controls, create and manage cloud environments, and facilitate the migration of workloads to your cloud and back.

For Enterprises and Developers: What Does the SUSE OpenStack Cloud Program Offer?

With SUSE's global ecosystem of cloud partners, enterprises can consume on-demand, pay-as-you go instances of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and receive the same exceptional support and service levels for cloud deployments as they receive for on-premise deployments.

The SUSE OpenStack Cloud Program benefits developers and QA / test professionals by allowing them to rapidly create, test and deploy innovative software through instantly available, pay-per-use cloud infrastructure. Developers can also expand their market opportunities by offering applications as SaaS offerings on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server running on our partners' cloud infrastructures.
