Migrating from one platform to another can be complicated by factors such as IT resource limitations, application migration scheduling, and training costs. To help customers address those challenges, SUSE® is providing support for your current Linux environment during your transition.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with Expanded Support is a unique product that delivers commercial support for multi-vendor Linux environments. By covering support for existing Linux deployments, it removes significant cost barrier associated with introducing a second Linux distribution while offering tangible benefits of the most interoperable Linux.
