Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Oct 05, 2016 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates – SUSE®, a pioneer in Enterprise open source software, has announced their participation at GITEX Technology Week 2016, where they will showcase their four main product offerings for the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) and Zero Downtime Environments – mission critical Enterprise Linux, private cloud, storage and Linux management.
Commenting on their participation at GITEX 2016, Paul Abi-Chahine, Regional Director, EEMEA said, “The ongoing digital transformation is redefining how enterprises do businesses across the globe and across verticals. If regional organizations are to keep pace with their global compeition it is critical for them to embrace the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), a cornerstone of the digitized economy. The SDDCs virtualise all elements of the infrastructure such as networking, storage, security, and processing power and run it as a service. With the focus being on flexibility, scalability, and redundancy, the potential impact this will have on business models is significant.”
With a presence at SAP’s stand, SUSE will showcase SUSE Enterprise Linux Server for SAP. This solution can ease deployment and increase uptime of mission-critical SAP solution-based workloads on Linux, including high availability features for the public cloud and updated optimization for SAP HANA, thus saving customers time and reducing operating costs.
In addition, together with their value added distributor, Aptec Middle East, an Ingram Micro company, SUSE will showcase their open source infrastructure solutions – Enterprise Linux, OpenStack Private Cloud, Software-Defined-Storage and Linux Management – that offer a reliable, scalable and secure platform for efficiently deploying and managing highly available enterprise-class IT services in physical, virtual or cloud infrastructure.
SUSE OpenStack Cloud delivers high availability enhancements and non-disruptive upgrades for future releases, along with Docker and IBM z Systems mainframe support to make it easier to move business-critical applications and data to the cloud. SUSE Enterprise Storage, a self-managing, self-healing, distributed software-defined storage solution, is the first and only Ceph-based solution with heterogeneous operating system support, giving customers highly scalable, resilient and low-cost storage that can seamlessly adapt to today’s challenging data demands. In addition, their Linux management solution, SUSE Manager, helps customers reduce the complexities of managing their IT infrastructures, a key advantage as customers look to cut costs and increase the responsiveness required to adopt DevOps and hybrid cloud solutions.
“GITEX is the key IT event in the region. There is a healthy appetite for open-source solutions and our priority is, together with our partners, to offer a variety of best-of-breed solutions to enterprises looking to modernize and standardize their IT infrastructure, leverage cloud computing and software-based storage solutions, and make use of new technologies like big data, all while achieving zero-downtime environments for their business-critical workloads”, concluded Paul Abi-Chahine.
