SUSE Linux Enterprise is a bridge between the traditional system and the cloud approach, and it is the first multimodal operating system in the world which enables enterprises to always innovate, grow, and compete.

FREMONT, CA: SUSE, an open-source software provider, has released SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 1 to support present and future demands of IT landscapes. Organizations need the ability to design, deploy, and operate cloud-based, microservice-based apps as part of a DevOps strategy. They must offer contemporary containerized apps to allow safe and agile development and movement from edge to on-premise to hybrid to multi-cloud settings. In the same time, traditional systems are widely used to host critical mission workloads such as databases and ERP systems.

It is a modular and modern operating system which helps in simplifying the multimodal IT, which in return makes the traditional IT infrastructure more efficient and providing an engaging platform for developers. This will help organizations to move their critical workload across their core premises and cloud environment. SUSE's open approach helps an organization to work with the customer's preferred partners and vendors.

The Enterprise will advance the multimodal Operating System (OS) model by intensifying the main contents of the shared code base and community development while hardening business-critical attributes such as data security, optimized workloads, and reduced downtime.

The highlights of the SUSE Linux Enterprise include:

• Swift and Simple Transformation from Community to Enterprise Linux: With the upgrade in technology, it is now just a few clicks away for developers and operations to move an entire leap system to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

• Increased Support for Edge to HPC Workloads: SUSE Linux Enterprise for Arm 15 has doubled the number of supported system-on-a-chip (SoC) processor options on its service pack 1. These changes expand the support for storage and industrial automation applications on the Internet of Things (IoT) and 64-bit arm server.

• Optimization of Workloads and Minimization in Data Latency: Organizations will be able to address the challenges of enormous data increment with more speed while incurring lower infrastructure and management costs.

• Improvement in Data Security Based on Hardware: The service pack 1 provides full support to the hardware technology. The data will be much secure now in a cloud environment.

• Reduction in Downtime for Updates: The Linux Enterprise delivers a significant decrease in the updates window.

• Simplified Installation: The Unified Installer provided in SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 gives the consumers a streamlined way to engage with SUSE products.
