SUSE and Supermicro have entered into a global partnership that will provide innovative new enterprise IT solutions based on Supermicro hardware featuring SUSE OpenStack Cloud, SUSE Enterprise Storage, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications, and embedded Linux.
The two companies are responding to market demand to provide converged solutions.
For the first of multiple planned joint solutions, Supermicro and SUSE have done the complex work of integrating OpenStack into a market-ready offering.
