SUSE has begun the beta testing phase of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12, giving existing SUSE Linux Enterprise customers an early look at the latest iteration of the most interoperable platform for mission-critical computing across physical, virtual and cloud environments. Products based on SUSE Linux Enterprise 12—including SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12, SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension 12 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 12—are scheduled for release later this year.
The newest SUSE Linux Enterprise is based on Linux Kernel 3.12. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 will feature enhancements related to business continuity, local systems management, interoperability and cloud. For example, it will include snapshot and rollback for the full system including the Linux kernel to reduce system downtime. It will also have a new installer to make deployment faster and easier.
"SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 is designed to give our enterprise customers greater efficiency and expanded computing capabilities," said George Shi, SUSE product marketing manager. "We look forward to gathering invaluable feedback from our customers during this beta testing phase."
