SUSE has announced that it will showcase its four main product offerings for the Software Defined Data Centre (SDDC) and Zero Downtime Environments – mission critical Enterprise Linux, private cloud, storage and Linux management – during its participation at GITEX.
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 Centre (SDDC), a cornerstone of the digitised 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 optimisation 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.
“GITEX is a 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 modernise 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”, said Abi-Chahine.
SUSE will be at the SAP booth in Hall 6, Stand MAC6-33 and at the Aptec Middle East booth in Hall 4, Stand C4-1.
