How SUSE aims to solve digital transformation challenges

04 Apr 2019

As enterprise customers move beyond the software-defined data centre to also embrace edge and cloud computing, SUSE aims to evolve with the market, delivering new hybrid and multi-cloud capabilities and application delivery innovations that help customers transform their digital infrastructures in their own way, as quickly as they need to.

SUSE Cloud Application Platform 1.4 is one of the first to introduce a Cloud Foundry Application Runtime in an entirely Kubernetes-native architecture via Project Eirini. The new release also increases options for deploying the platform in multi-cloud environments.

It will introduce a 100-percent-Kubernetes-native Cloud Foundry architecture with Project Eirini. Eirini allows users to take greater advantage of the widely adopted Kubernetes container scheduler and deepens the integration of Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry.

It also allows customers to use either Kubernetes or Cloud Foundry Diego as their container scheduler. Whichever is used, the developer experience is the same.
 
Altoros CTO Andrei Yurkevich says, “As a system integrator that helps Global 2000 organisations obtain a sustainable technology-driven competitive advantage, we’re really excited about the work SUSE has done to integrate the empowerment that Cloud Foundry brings to developers with the simplicity of Kubernetes for operators. 

“We’ve seen growing interest from our clients in using both technologies together. By incorporating Project Eirini, SUSE has further optimised the integration and enabled our Kubernetes clients to adopt Cloud Foundry faster.”

SUSE is now also a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP). The KCSP program is a pre-qualified tier of vetted service providers that have deep experience helping enterprises successfully adopt Kubernetes.

SUSE’s latest enterprise-ready OpenStack Cloud platform will also be available in April as SUSE OpenStack Cloud 9. It is the first release to integrate the best of SUSE OpenStack Cloud and HPE OpenStack technology into one, single-branded release.
