Maximize Performance and Availability

The best VMware solutions.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server ships with open-vm-tools and has VMware drivers built-in, eliminating the need to separately install tools and providing the best out-of-box experience to efficiently deploy virtual machines on VMware infrastructure.

SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension provides coverage for the workloads and data running in virtual machines on vSphere and, in combination with VMware HA, enhances uptime in virtual environments.

Optimize SAP HANA Deployments

Run SAP on the VMware platform for simplicity.

Running SAP on the VMware platform provides the simplicity, efficiency, and agility customers demand for their most mission critical enterprise environments. SUSE Linux Enterprise is the leading platform for SAP solutions on Linux and the recommended and supported OS of choice for SAP HANA.

SAP HANA now runs in production on vSphere 5.5, letting you combine the power of the SAP HANA in-memory platform with VMware vSphere and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP, to achieve faster time-to-value, better service levels, and lower TCO for your production environments.

 Expand with OpenStack and NSX 

Make the most of your IT budget.

Configuring and managing your network is one of the most challenging aspects of deploying an OpenStack private cloud.

SUSE OpenStack Cloud with integrated support for the VMware NSX virtualization platform allows customers with multi-hypervisor requirements to realize the full potential of a software–defined data center, enabling them to create, save, delete, and restore virtual networks on demand, without reconfiguring their physical network.
