YES Certified Program

Imagine what's possible when you combine your product leadership with our best-of-breed software

We're all being asked to do more with less. Your customers' expectations are no different. Partnering with SUSE enables you to build and deliver solutions that help your customers reduce costs, manage complexity and mitigate risk—and accelerate your success.

SUSE YES Certified Program

Have you considered the assurance that your hardware is compatible with SUSE Enterprise software? The SUSE YES Certification program brings this assurance.

SUSE strongly recommends that customers deploy hardware that is YES certified, using provided reference architectures, configurations, and published solution blueprints as these have been explicitly tested and are ideal for production deployments. By using one of these recommended solutions, customers benefit from an unbroken support chain from the ISV (Independent Software Vendor) through SUSE to the IHV (Independent Hardware Vendor) and even component manufacturers, thus helping to improve implementation success.
