SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 is here!


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 for SAP Applications





SUSE® today announced the general availability of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12, the newest version of its reliable, scalable and secure platform for efficiently deploying and managing highly available enterprise-class IT services in physical, virtual or cloud infrastructure. New products based on SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 feature enhancements that more readily enable system uptime, improve operational efficiency and accelerate innovation. The foundation for all SUSE data center operating systems and extensions, SUSE Linux Enterprise meets the performance requirements of data centers with mixed IT environments, while reducing the risk of technological obsolescence and vendor lock-in.




With this release, SUSE also introduces an updated customer portal, SUSE Customer Center, to make it easier for customers to manage their subscriptions, access patches and updates, and communicate with SUSE customer support.





"Given their competitive cost pressures, IT organizations today have a hard time responding quickly to changing business needs and leveraging innovation," said Nils Brauckmann, president and general manager of SUSE. "SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 helps enterprises stay agile, reclaim budget and easily leverage future open source innovation, helping them compete more effectively now and in the future."




Al Gillen, program vice president for servers and system software at IDC, said, "The industry is seeing growing movement of mission-critical workloads to Linux, with that trend expected to continue well into the future. The modular design of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12, as well as other mission-critical features like full system rollback and live kernel patching, helps address some of the key reservations customers express, and should help accelerate the adoption of Linux in this market segment."


New operating systems and software extensions based on SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 include:

• SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for x86_64, IBM Power Systems and IBM System z—versatile server operating systems for delivering business-critical IT services in a variety of physical, virtual and cloud environments. New features like full system rollback, live kernel patching enablement and software modules increase data center uptime, improve operational efficiency and accelerate the adoption of open source innovation. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 further builds on SUSE's leadership with Linux Containers technology and adds the Docker framework, which is now included as an integral part of the operating system.

• SUSE Linux Enterprise Server takes advantage of IBM POWER8 processor-based hardware optimizations that include support for little-endian Linux applications running on simultaneous multithreaded (SMT8) and PowerKVM environments. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z improves workload performance through instruction set exploitation for the last two generations of IBM System z processors, state-of-the art support for cryptographic accelerators and the related software stack, and enhancements for operational tasks like faster DASD formatting with dasdfmt or multiple point-to-point NETIUCV interfaces between Linux on System z and z/VM instances.

• SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension and Geo Clustering for SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension—clustering software for increasing services availability, physical and virtual, local and global. A new web console, updated OCFS2 and GFS2 file system support, and the latest updates in ReaR for disaster recovery make protecting core business systems quick and easy.

• SUSE Linux Enterprise Virtual Machine Driver Pack—for boosting Windows virtual machine performance on Linux hosts. It now supports a wider variety of Windows operating systems, such as Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1.

• SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and SUSE Linux Enterprise Workstation Extension—for improving productivity while lowering costs and increasing security. Users can turn servers into full-featured development or administrator workstation environments.

SUSE History

On September 2, 1992, four twenty-somethings from Nuremberg, Germany—Roland Dyroff, Thomas Fehr, Burchard Steinbild, and Hubert Mantel—formed the Gesellschaft für Software und System Entwicklung GmbH. Literally translated as "Company for Software and Systems Development," the company has always been known as SUSE.

They may not have realized it at the time, but these young men changed the face of Linux forever. When their first planned distribution lacked a good installation and configuration tool, YaST (Yet another Setup Tool) was developed. Popular for its easy use, attractive graphical interface and the capability to customize your systems quickly during and after the installation, YaST took the Linux enterprise community by storm. And this was just the beginning.

SUSE's technical expertise and customer focus always stood out from other Linux distributions. IBM took notice and increasingly cooperated with SUSE in development work for their high-end platforms. Built on top of the open source Linux kernel and distributed with system and application software from other open source projects, SUSE was one of the first to deliver the value of open source to the enterprise.

In 2004 Novell bought SUSE and expanded community contributions further by sponsoring the openSUSE project and openSUSE Build Service. They made major contributions to the Linux kernel as well as Xen, KVM, OpenOffice.org, GNOME and KDE. SUSE continues to innovate and serve the business needs of its partners and customers worldwide with the best Linux distribution on the market.

In 2012, SUSE announced its 20 year anniversary. Check out SUSE's major historical milestones.



On November 20, 2014 SUSE became part of Micro Focus International.
