Increased performance and efficiency doesn't have to empty your wallet or burden your IT team with administration nightmares. Each SUSE Linux Enterprise Server subscription includes support for the leading open source hypervisor technologies and containers (including Docker).

Because enterprises are increasingly moving workloads to virtual and cloud environments, we have optimized SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for all major virtualization hypervisors and cloud platforms. As a result, you get more from your underutilized systems and lower the costs of acquiring and maintaining hardware.

Save Infrastructure Costs with Virtualization

While providing the same service as a hardware server, Virtualization uses less hardware, less power/cooling, saves data center space, and is easier to manage. Enhance your organization's IT infrastructure with virtualization capabilities such as server consolidation, disaster recovery, and dynamic load balancing.

Take Advantage of Built-in Virtualization Capabilities

Increase resource utilization, respond faster to changing business needs, and get better application performance with virtualization solutions from SUSE. You can deploy SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 anywhere in physical, virtual, and cloud environments. It is a "perfect guest"—optimized for various hypervisors.

Meet Agile IT Needs with Docker and Containers

Docker is an open source technology that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers. It provides an additional layer of abstraction and automation of OS-level virtualization on Linux. Docker and Linux Containers are great ways to build, deploy, and manage applications.

Innovate with Docker

Respond to your agile IT needs with an enterprise ready Docker solution. Whether your teams are looking to collaborate securely for creating Docker apps or integrate container applications with cloud or quickly deploy Docker using a minimized host OS, you can achieve your goals with SUSE Docker solution.

Use the Platform Optimized for All Major Hypervisors

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server ships with Xen & Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM), the two most widely used open source hypervisor technologies. Also, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is optimized to deliver superior performance with VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. It's also the most affordable operating system to use in these virtual environments.

Virtualizing Windows Can Be Fast and Easy

Consolidate your Windows applications and run fully virtualized Windows workloads on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with near–native performance using the SUSE Linux Enterprise Virtual Machine Driver Pack.
