This server operating system (OS) supports thousands of applications in virtual and cloud environments as well as industry-standard hardware.

Designed to deliver essential data center services with commodity off-the-shelf IT resources, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is a versatile Linux platform that pleases both business users and IT managers. This Linux server OS supports thousands of third-party ISV applications and enables them to run in physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server also interoperates with two other operating systems often used in today's data centers: Windows and UNIX . Optional extensions deliver advanced functionality. As a result, you can integrate SUSE Linux Enterprise Server seamlessly into mixed IT infrastructures, continue to run your existing applications, and add new capabilities as your business needs change.

More than 13,000 businesses worldwide use SUSE Linux Enterprise Server because SLES supports more than 8,500 third-party ISVs. The list of supported software keeps growing. Certified and supported software for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server includes everything from mission-critical databases, e-commerce applications and ERP systems, to email, file, and print servers and web servers.

Additionally, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server supports industry-standard development and runtime environments, such as Java™ and .NET.

To get more from their existing resources and achieve greater business agility, organizations are increasingly moving workloads to virtual environments and the cloud. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is a flexible operating platform for physical, virtual, and cloud computing that's supported by today's leading technology vendors.

SUSE is teaming with both Microsoft and VMware to optimize SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on each company's hypervisor technology (Hyper-V and vSphere respectively). As a result, clients can count on consistent performance and streamlined support when using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with Hyper-V or vSphere.

Every subscription to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server includes commercial support for Xen and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), providing a powerful yet affordable way to virtualize workloads.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications

Boost overall performance and accelerate time to value. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications delivers outstanding uptime and performance, even under full CPU loads and high memory stress.

Rely on integrated support from SAP and SUSE. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications offers integrated priority support and maintenance from both SUSE and SAP through the SAP Solution Manager.

Protect your critical business operations with built-in business continuity. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications includes high-availability components that help build SAP clustering solutions for physical and virtual Linux deployments.

Save time with faster deployment. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is designed to enable deployment in hours instead of days. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is the only operating system that provides an automated, end-to-end installation workflow, including the SAP applications.

SLES for HPC compute nodes

SUSE offers packages specifically for the user who needs to deploy clusters of systems that work together to take on the most challenging of missions.

A cluster is a collection of interconnected computers working together as a single computing resource. Special pricing applies for HPC clusters for situations that meet all of the following criteria:

Extensions

SUSE also offers modular extensions that supply advanced capabilities for supporting your infrastructure. And because these extensions are optional, you pay only for the functionality your business needs. These extensions inherit the support and virtualization characteristics of the underlying SUSE Linux Enterprise Server subscription.

SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension

Ensure continuous access to your mission-critical applications and data. This flexible, policy-driven clustering solution is designed to virtually eliminate service outages.

Service outages and interruptions to business processes can take a terrible toll on productivity, revenue, and customer relationships. In some cases, they can even have legal consequences. SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension helps clients ensure that their most mission-critical applications continue to deliver business value, 24 hours a day, every day.

This is achieved through the use of high availability clustering to automate application and data recovery. Clients can use SUSE's flexible, policy-driven clustering solution to implement highly available Linux clusters and eliminate single points of failure. The servers are continuously monitored; and when a fault or failure occurs, the workload is transferred from one server to another, or the application is automatically restarted on a known working system. This helps maintain business continuity and minimize unplanned downtime.

This extension is included in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications subscriptions.

Geo Clustering for SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension

When clients need maximum protection for a workload that can never have unplanned downtime, and clients have data centers in different places around the globe, clients can protect the workload using geo clustering. Geo Clustering for SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension allows for deployment of physical and virtual Linux clusters between data centers located anywhere in the world. This extends the capabilities of SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension across unlimited distances. Even in a regional disaster, your mission-critical Linux workloads will continue to run. With Geo Clustering for SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension, your organization can maintain business continuity, protect data integrity, and minimize unplanned downtime.

Special bids and Enterprise License Agreements

To help facilitate special bids or Enterprise License Agreements, special bid offerings are being announced for Linux opportunities for SUSE.

Server

Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or Client Devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. For the purpose of server-based licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements for each server that is made available to the program, regardless of the number of processor cores and partitions in the server or the number of copies of the program on the server.

Note: Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the servers managed by the program.

New licenses

Except where noted, configuration aids, either IBM Configurator for e-business or IBM Hardware Configurator, must be used for creation of valid software and hardware orders for the offerings in this announcement, as well as other referenced and affiliated announcement offerings.

Billing for the operating systems will occur under the licensed program order number contained in this announcement.

To order these programs, specify the type model number, order type description, one-time charge (OTC) feature number with quantity, and supply feature number as indicated and listed in the tables below.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
