Virtual applications built with SUSE Studio seamlessly integrate into industry virtualization platforms and standards like VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, KVM, and OVF.

Designed for today’s mixed IT environments, SUSE Studio™ enables developers to quickly create, test and deploy virtual applications for all major hypervisors, including VMware, Hyper-V, KVM and Xen as well as industry standards like OVF. SUSE Studio stores all information about the virtual image or appliance so that it can be reproduced, duplicated or deployed to virtual or cloud environments at the push of a button. Furthermore, an integrated update mechanism automates the maintenance of your deployed virtual application.

Virtualization makes it easier, faster and cheaper to provision new servers. Virtualization increases server utilization, can reduce server provisioning time up to 90 percent, offers high availability to keep your business running during outages, and can reduce power, cooling, and real estate costs in a green data center. Furthermore, a virtual infrastructure is a precursor to a private (internal or on-premises) cloud.
