Assemble, build and maintain complete application stacks in minutes and deploy wherever you want.
SUSE Studio in a nutshell
SUSE Studio™ is a web-based tool that allows you to build, test, deploy, and maintain software applications based on SUSE Linux Enterprise. With SUSE Studio you can create software application images or appliances in several formats, making it easy to deploy them on physical hardware, in virtualized environments, or to cloud environments. You can build ISO files for making installable Live CDs or raw disk images that can be written directly to physical hard drives or removable media such as USB sticks. Within a couple of clicks, you decide if you would like to generate virtual application images in the standard formats supported by VMware, Xen, KVM, Hyper-V or OVF. With one click you can also deploy your cloud application directly to Amazon EC2 or SUSE Cloud.
More important, SUSE Studio stores all build-related information as well as the configuration of your application images. At any time, you can reproduce your application image or appliance. Integrated version control and change logging enable the review or audit of changes before any application image or appliance moves into production. Integrated "test drive" functionality allows the testing of the application image or appliances before download. Once approved, the application image becomes the baseline to which further changes may be applied in future. This saves you hours of download time, and allows you to securely test your application image before you download and deploy it.
