Suse is a recently launched independent open-source company behind the eponymous Linux administration.
They also have an increasingly broad set of managed enterprise services.
Today they have announced a part of a new strategy as it seems to stay on top of the growing trends in the enterprise developer area.
Introducing The OpenStack Platform
Throughout the last few years, Suse has put substantial importance on the OpenStack platform.
It is an open-source project that allows big enterprises to create something in their own data centers related to the core services of a public cloud like AWS or Azure.
Among this new strategy, Suse is transitioning away from OpenStack.
It is stopping both productions of new versions of its OpenStack Cloud and sales of its current OpenStack product.
Suse Takes Takes The Next Step
The company said in a statement that Suse starts on the next step of their growth and development as the world’s biggest independent open source company.
They will start the business by aligning their strategy to meet the present and future needs of their enterprise customers.
They also are moving to increase dynamic hybrid and multi-cloud application landscapes and DevOps processes.
Suse is ideally placed to perform on this strategy and help its customers include the full spectrum of computing environments, from side to core to cloud.
What Suse will concentrate on moving forward is it’s Cloud Application Platform and Kubernetes-based container platform.
Odds are, Suse would not close down its OpenStack services if it noticed growing sales in this section.
But while the hype about OpenStack fell in current years, it is still among the world’s most vibrant open-source projects.
It also manages the production conditions of some of the world’s biggest companies, including some extremely large telcos.
It took some time for the project to stand itself in a space where all of the mindshare went to boxes and mainly Kubernetes for the last several years.
Though, at the same time, containers are also starting up new possibilities for OpenStack.
As you still require some way to handle those containers and the rest of your infrastructure.
Suse is included in some of the additional projects under the OpenStack brand, so the company will possibly continue as a sponsor.
However, it is a fair guess that it won’t proceed to do so at the highest level.
