Huawei will use SUSE Linux for its servers

Huawei and SUSE logos

The Chinese mobile giant Huawei until now it had servers with Windows Server and RHEL from Microsoft and Red Hat respectively. As you know, the Chinese firm has become quite important and large thanks to the sale of mobile phones and other products, but above all its smartphones stand out with high performance compared to others of the high-end competition but for quite reasonable prices.

Well, Huawei is also a member of the Linux Foundation, since it is interested in contributing by depending on the operating system Google Android, that we remember, uses Linux kernel. But his commitment to the penguin platform goes further, and now we have learned that he was already using RHEL for his servers as we have commented, but he wants to start replacing this operating system and Microsoft's with SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLES).

Huawei's motive of get rid of RHEL and Windows Server is to get more performance and harness the potential of your high availability platform in a more efficient way thanks to SUSE. The change will not be radical, and they will gradually reduce the presence of the other systems on their servers, until they only have SUSE for KunLun RAS 2.0 servers. So, although SUSE is not as big a giant as Red Hat, it seems that it is slowly eating more and more ground in the business sector thanks to its best solutions, innovative technologies and alliances.

SUSE appears to be more feature-friendly and will run on KunLun firmware integrating seamlessly with the Linux kernel's ACPI power management, CPU control, and memory management modules. That best adaptation to these subsystems is the one that responds to the best use. So welcome to be this type of news about the use of more and more Linux-based systems, and especially if that means an improvement for customers and companies ...
