- The updates further enrich Kubernetes experience for developers, DevOps teams and platform operators
- SUSE CaaS Platform 4 and SUSE Cloud Application Platform 1.5 will be available within 30 days.
SUSE has announced updates to its application delivery solutions that help customers accelerate production of modern containerized and cloud native applications.
These updates advance SUSE’s delivery and support of solutions to create, deploy and manage workloads anywhere – on premise, hybrid and multi-cloud – with exceptional service, value and flexibility.
The enhanced solutions further enrich the experiences offered to application developers, DevOps teams and Kubernetes platform operators.
SUSE application delivery solutions include SUSE CaaS Platform, an enterprise-ready container management solution based on Kubernetes, and SUSE Cloud Application Platform, which runs on top of Kubernetes and helps enterprises achieve their cloud native application delivery goals more quickly and cost effectively.
DevOps teams can take advantage of the former to manage a wide range of workloads, including traditional, transitional and cloud native workloads. The latter solution adds ready-made workflow automation that enables DevOps teams to deliver cloud native applications rapidly, at scale and in multi-cloud environments. SUSE’s solutions complement each other and can be used effectively together and separately.
The new releases
SUSE CaaS Platform 4 elevates Kubernetes platform operations with enhancements that strengthen application security, make it easier to keep pace with technology advancements and expand platform scalability options. The solution integrates the latest releases of Kubernetes and SUSE Linux Enterprise.
SUSE Cloud Application Platform 1.5, the latest version of SUSE’s modern application delivery platform for Kubernetes, reduces management complexity with new user interface enhancements. It also increases IT efficiency by providing a faster time to value with a simple and more predictable installation experience on hosted Kubernetes services.
“SUSE’s modern application delivery solutions are easy for development and DevOps teams to use and for IT to operate,” said Thomas Di Giacomo, SUSE president of Engineering, Product and Innovation.
“Our support of Cilium-based networking puts our customers ahead of those using other commercially supported Kubernetes solutions and is an example of how we’re powering digital transformation with agile open source solutions that enable enterprises to continually innovate, compete and grow,” he noted.
SUSE CaaS Platform 4 and SUSE Cloud Application Platform 1.5 will be available within 30 days.
Cilium open source project
SUSE is first to provide enterprises with advanced networking for Kubernetes based on the Cilium open source project. Leveraging Cilium, SUSE enables Kubernetes users to strengthen application security at scale with high performance packet filtering and network communication security policies that are easy to implement and control.
SUSE also introduces new application discovery and deployment capabilities that allow users to quickly and easily deploy applications and services that have been published as Helm charts, including hundreds of popular open source DevOps tools and ISV solutions as well as internally developed applications and services.
