SUSE enhances HPE GreenLake capabilities

SUSE has expanded its partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to enhance HPE GreenLake’s edge-to-cloud services platform offering. As announced to coincide with HPE’s Discover conference, HPE will integrate SUSE’s software stack, including SUSE Linux Enterprise, SUSE Rancher and K3s.

When used with SUSE Rancher and SUSE Linux Enterprise Micro, K3s is ideal for running production workloads across resource-restrained, remote locations or on IoT devices. SUSE Rancher and K3s is now an option for HPE GreenLake edge deployments, complementing HPE’s Ezmeral container management solution.

Customers can leverage HPE GreenLake to deploy large edge-driven container workloads with global Management-as-a-Service. HPE customers are also able to get the same support for their SUSE solutions as they do for their HPE solutions via HPE Pointnext.

Thomas Di Giacomo, chief technology and product officer at SUSE, said: “HPE delivers a powerful edge-to-core-to-cloud solution with HPE GreenLake, and SUSE is working closely with HPE to make it dramatically easier for customers to build a distributed application for the edge. With HPE, we share the vision that the next wave of enterprise computing is distributed. Due to scale, scope and complexity, customers are increasingly opting for ‘as a service’ models to manage their edge-to-cloud computing. We have a more than 25-year partnership with HPE, and this expansion will enable our customers to be even more successful in edge-to-cloud deployments.”

Vishal Lall, HPE’s GM of HPE Software and HPE GreenLake Cloud Solutions, said, “With the combined HPE GreenLake-SUSE solution, companies can optimize their operations from the edge to the cloud, with workload and data lifecycle management at massive scale. Together, our solutions are differentiated and deliver a compelling value proposition for the distributed enterprise.”
