The support for 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors is included in SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 4
SUSE, a pioneer in open source software, announced that it is now supporting 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors that were formerly code named as Cascade Lake, following on the heels to become the first enterprise Linux optimised for Intel Optane DC persistent memory with SAP HANA workloads.
The solutions will run on the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on Intel Optane DC persistent memory and 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. This will help the businesses to better able to address the challenges of massive data increases with higher speed and agility, along with incurring lower management and infrastructure costs.
Speaking about the development, Thomas Di Giacomo, President – Engineering, Product and Innovation at SUSE, said “Organisations today face increasing pressure to become more agile and economically efficient in order to grow, compete and survive. We’re helping them harness today’s explosive innovation as they embrace hybrid and multi-cloud as well as on-premises environments to fuel and enable their digital transformation.”
To serve customers worldwide
Giacomo further said, “Intel’s persistent memory technology will spark new applications for data access and storage, with in-memory database solutions being just one application. It is customer needs that drive our joint innovation with Intel, and we continue to partner to serve customers worldwide who are looking to fuel growth by transforming their IT infrastructure.”
Alper Ilkbahar, Vice President and General Manager – Datacenter Memory and Storage Solutions at Intel, said, “Intel is focused on data-centric transformation by disrupting the memory and storage hierarchy and helping our customers address the massive increase in data they face daily.”
“By collaborating with software leaders like SUSE, we are able to help customers more quickly and confidently deploy Intel Optane DC persistent memory, and reap the rewards of this transformational technology,” he added.
The support for Intel Optane DC persistent memory and 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors is included in SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 4.
