Enterprise Linux distributor SUSE is allowing existing customers to utilize their own SUSE subscriptions within the public cloud through a new “bring your own subscription” (BYOS) program, which it said will allow users to easily move new and existing workloads between their data centers and the cloud.
SUSE customers can enroll for the option online for free, and all users will still be able to use their existing SUSE support relationship.
“Portable subscriptions provide our customers with the flexibility to run on-premise or in the cloud, while maintaining enterprise support for their mission-critical workloads,” said Naji Almahmoud, global head of Business Development for SUSE, in a statement. “Customers who take advantage of the bring-your-own subscription capability at SUSE Certified Cloud Providers can protect their investment and leverage their existing SUSE support relationship, ensuring they receive the same level of SUSE service across their entire IT infrastructure—data center, private cloud and public cloud.”
SUSE announced several additions to its Cloud Service Provider Program in conjunction with the BYOS program, which will allow users to access new service and support options for their cloud programs, as well as participate in the company’s new certification program for cloud service providers.
CSPs looking to flesh out their offerings can also use SUSE Start for Cloud Service Providers for help deploying their infrastructure on the public cloud. The BYOS announcement was made in conjunction with SUSECon 2014 in Orlando, where the company released details on several new offerings, including its SUSE Storage beta program.
SUSE also announced the availability of its kGraft-based Linux Enterprise Live Patching solution, which will allow customers to patch their systems without needing to reboot or interrupt their services.
