SUSE Linux Enterprise JeOS (Just Enough Operating System) is a slimmed down configuration of SUSE Linux Enterprise that provides only the functionality that you need.

Tailor your systems for your data center, or create virtual application images or appliances for simplicity and speed. Create a customized, lightweight configuration of SUSE Linux Enterprise that is easy to deploy and maintain, consumes fewer resources, and improves security.

Whatever your goal, SUSE Linux Enterprise JeOS will help you get there without any excess baggage.

Choose your packages and elements

You decide which packages and elements to include based on what you need—whether you are building a virtual appliance or imaging a new server.

Create your own version of SUSE Linux Enterprise from the ground up with SUSE Linux Enterprise JeOS, and include only what you need, and nothing you don't.

SUSE Linux Enterprise JeOS is a customizable configuration of SUSE Linux Enterprise designed as a bare minimum bootable image formatted for:

  • VMware
  • Xen
  • KVM
  • 64 bit x86

You can use this JeOS to boot, configure basic utilities, and connect to SUSE to download additional SUSE Linux Enterprise packages.

This means you get to decide which packages and elements you include based on what you need—whether you are building a virtual appliance or imaging a new server.

Deliver huge benefits to your customers

SUSE Linux Enterprise JeOS helps you meet your customer's needs and deliver an OS that reduces support costs and enhances the user experience.

When is "just enough" better than "more than enough?" When you care about reducing support costs, improving security, and enhancing the end user experience for your customers. With SUSE Linux Enterprise JeOS, you can trim the size of the OS to only those packages that are critical to your needs. This reduces support costs by lowering the number of packages and patches that have to be managed and applied.

Further, the number of potential vulnerabilities is substantially reduced as you remove unnecessary packages. This improves the security of the operating system and overall solution. And the reduced footprint consumes fewer system resources, improving performance for the end customer. SUSE Linux Enterprise JeOS delivers all of this and more, allowing you to focus your time where it matters most: your products.

SUSE Linux Enterprise JeOS is based on the same code base as SUSE Linux Enterprise. If you are certified on SUSE Linux Enterprise today, you do not need to re-certify for JeOS.
