SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Now Available On Windows Azure

SUSE has announced that SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and openSUSE can now be run in Windows Azure Virtual Machines. Additionally, through SUSE Studio, customers can rapidly develop cloud-ready applications and automatically launch them on Windows Azure, virtually eliminating inefficient manual processes.

SUSE makes it easy to extend SUSE Linux Enterprise Server-based applications to Windows Azure using the one-click-deployment capabilities of SUSE Studio. SUSE will also include automatic maintenance that keeps SUSE Linux Enterprise Server up-to-date on the most current security patches, bug fixes and new features, so customers can get peak performance efficiently and cost-effectively.

An enterprise-class distribution, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on Windows Azure will be backed by a wide range of support options from SUSE. In addition, it comes with the tools needed to quickly and easily build, deploy and maintain complete, portable, Linux-based application stacks so customers can rapidly scale up or down as needed.

“As enterprise adoption of Windows Azure and cloud computing grows, the importance of coming together to solve interoperability issues is only growing. We at Microsoft want to work with the ecosystem of vendors and communities to deliver cloud solutions to customers based on their specific needs and scenarios,” Sandy Gupta, General Manager, Open Solutions Group, Microsoft. “Through our continued engagement on technical interoperability with SUSE, we look forward to delivering core value to those running mission-critical, mixed-source IT environments from the data center and into the cloud.”

“By delivering SUSE Linux Enterprise Server in the cloud, SUSE helps companies increase flexibility and resource utilisation while reducing risk,” said Michael Miller, Vice President, Global Marketing and Alliances, SUSE. “Through our alliance with Microsoft, we are pleased to provide our joint customers the ability to take advantage of the most certified applications of any Linux vendor and a robust solution, such as SUSE Studio, for developing and deploying mission-critical Linux workloads on a pay-per-use basis to Windows Azure.”
