How to Buy Subscriptions for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for High Performance Computing

Subscriptions are a way for you to take full advantage of the capabilities of SUSE Linux and open source software. With SUSE, you get a knowledgeable experienced partner that will provide the expertise, assistance, fixes, and upgrades needed to deliver an enterprise-grade technology infrastructure.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is built on a common source code base that is used for all SUSE Linux Enterprise products across all hardware platforms including X86-64, 64-bit Arm, IBM z Systems, and IBM POWER.

This means the versions of the source code used for the core packages of the SUSE Linux Enterprise product family are the same—from the desktop to the mainframe. The toolchain, such as compilers and libraries, is also the same across the supported hardware architectures.

The common code base lets you better leverage the skills of your IT staff through product consistency and a persistent look and feel. Additionally, it provides for higher code quality, better supportability and preemptive code maintenance.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for High Performance Computing (SLES for HPC) is the exact same distribution as SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, but it is sold with different terms, conditions, and cost-effective prices that are tailored to the unique requirements of High Performance Computing environments—particularly the extreme scale of many of those environments.

Due to the size and potential complexity of HPC environments, SUSE only sells SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for High Performance Computing through our partners and direct sales team. https://www.suse.com/partners/
