SUSE becomes Mirantis strategic Linux partner
BENGALURU, India – August 10, 2016 – Mirantis, the pure-playOpenStack Company, and SUSE®, a pioneer in Linux and open source solutions, today announced a joint collaboration to offer Mirantis OpenStack customers support for enterprise Linux. Both companies will collaborate technically to establish SUSE Linux Enterprise Server as a development platform for use with Mirantis OpenStack. The companies will also collaborate to support Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS, making Mirantis a one-stop shop for OpenStack support on the leading enterprise Linux distributions.
SUSE and Mirantis will explore collaboration options to further optimize SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for Mirantis OpenStack and contribute all changes to the respective Open Source projects.
Mirantis offers a pure-play OpenStack solution by offering customers the flexibility to choose which operating system, and even hypervisors, they want based on workload or skill set. Mirantis will now offer support, patches and updates for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server as well as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS online. Priority subscriptions are available in single or three-year terms and include security and other updates plus 24x7x365 email and phone-based support – with guaranteed one-hour response time.
Support is available for current versions of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, RHEL and CentOS.
“Many of our larger customers run two or three different Linux flavors. Now OpenStack users can get support for their major Linux distributions in one place from Mirantis,” said Mirantis, Co-Founder and CMO, Boris Renski. “Thousands of enterprises worldwide across major industries count on SUSE because they offer enterprise-grade, high reliability, bet-your-business service level agreements. Partnering with SUSE gives Mirantis customers access to this support as they build their private cloud.”
“At SUSE, we believe in openness and choice for our customers and our partners,” said Michael Miller, President of Strategy, Alliances and Marketing at SUSE. “That’s why SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is the most interoperable and robust platform for mission-critical computing and the smart choice for OpenStack private clouds.
