High-availability solutions deliver nonstop IT for uninterrupted service

Make IT interruptions and unplanned downtime a thing of the past

Delivering nonstop IT means your organization can trust that infrastructure, systems and people will be available whenever they’re needed. Service interruptions can affect your reputation and customer service, making it a business priority to run, fix and adapt your systems without missing a step.

SUSE delivers high availability IT solutions through converged infrastructure with business-critical Linux and scalable automation. To support the important goal of keeping services available at all times, you can replicate application data across multiple clusters to recover faster. And we deliver the power to apply kernel fixes and upgrade systems without interrupting service so you can better respond to changing market conditions, while keeping your system secure.

Run and upgrade your critical IT systems with confidence

Recover without interruption

Losing access to any of your systems can have a big impact. In some cases, reliability means maintaining customer trust and maximizing revenue. In other organizations, such as health care, lives are at stake.

SUSE High Availability solutions help you run without interruption, gain resilience and recover faster by protecting data assets using your existing IT infrastructure. High availability clustering automates application and data recovery with a flexible, cost-effective solution that eliminates single points of failure. In the event of a fault or failure, the workload is transferred to another server, or the application automatically restarts on a working system. Couple our high-availability software with direct, named access to premium engineers and you have a solution that is truly business-critical.

Fix and update on live systems

Keeping your systems current is a priority for security and stability. Traditionally, IT has had to weigh tradeoffs between the long-term benefits of applying fixes and updating infrastructure versus the costs of short-term service interruptions.

SUSE Live Patching across multiple architectures is an innovation driven by SUSE that eliminates this tradeoff so you can improve business continuity while saving costs. You can apply patches to your Linux kernel while applications run, and without rebooting your system. This helps you avoid interrupting critical processes – such as running SAP solutions, artificial intelligence applications and analytics on top of big data, and database applications. See the benefits of maximizing uptime while also enhancing security and compliance.
