Faster return on investment with an even better installation process
Building on the initial version of the installation framework, SUSE has augmented SUSE Cloud 2.0 for even greater scalability through integration with the latest release of the open source deployment framework Crowbar and an updated user interface.
Easily manage mixed hypervisor cloud environments
Enterprises have increasingly deployed multiple hypervisors in their data centers to optimize workload performance, while lowering licensing costs. SUSE Cloud provides mixed hypervisor support, so you can maintain the flexibility of your multi-hypervisor environment and maximize your previous technology investment. SUSE Cloud 2.0 supports KVM and Xen hypervisor environments and is the first OpenStack distribution to add full support for Microsoft Hyper-V. VMware ESXi integration is also included as a technical preview in SUSE Cloud 2.0.
Increased support for partner solutions expands the enterprise capabilities of your cloud
SUSE Cloud 2.0 includes a technical preview of Ceph and the Ceph Rados Gateway, providing compatible Swift and Amazon S3 (Simplified Storage Service) APIs for block storage. Support for Amazon EC2 and S3 APIs helps companies choosing to deploy hybrid clouds by providing easy access to Ceph's fully redundant data storage infrastructure for storing or retrieving any amount of data in the cloud. SUSE is also working with partners such as Coraid, EMC, Inktank and NetApp to give SUSE Cloud users a broad choice of block storage plug-ins. And SUSE Cloud Networking is also plug-in enabled, providing customers the extended capabilities offered by Cisco, Midokura, Open Vswitch and VLAN bridging solutions.
