The German company SUSE, which is so linked to the world of Linux and free software, does not stop innovating and enhancing its products oriented to companies. Especially lately it is putting great potential in the field of virtualization and the cloud, two sectors that are gaining prominence in companies. For this reason, agreements with other corporations to strengthen themselves in this regard do not cease, nor do they lack economic outlays to improve.
Now SUSE has purchased the technological assets and talent of the company HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise), a sector of the famous HP dedicated to the business sector. This major move puts you in a better position relative to the competition, which basically comes down to Red Hat. Both titans are trying hard and innovating to create great products to delight their business customers.
The objective of this acquisition is SUSE's commitment to offer technologies for infrastructure of open source software with high business value for your customers and partners. This was announced in Nuremberg by SUSE CEO Nils Brauckmann. In other words, SUSE's vision is to be able to develop its SUSE OpenStack as an IaaS service, and accelerate SUSE's entry into Cloud Foundry's growing PaaS market. Undoubtedly a very interesting strategic move, like others that European companies have used to.
The assets acquired will be integrated into OpenStack SUSE Cloud, while assets Cloud Foundry and PaaS will enable SUSE to bring a certified, enterprise-ready Cloud Foundry PaaS solution to market, accessible to all of its customers and partners in the SUSE ecosystem. The agreement also includes HPE's appointment of SUSE as the preferred partner for Linux / OpenStack / Cloud Foundry open source solutions. And that has also strengthened SUSE's commitment to the Cloud Foundry Foundation.
