SUSE Adds SUSE Linux Enterprise to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

SUSE (a Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork) recently announced that SUSE Enterprise Linux is now a part of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure ( This move also brings Oracle into the ever-growing membership of the SUSE Partner Program for Cloud Service Providers.

Both SUSE Linux Enterprise and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications will allow customers to leverage high performance virtual machines and bare metal compute for Linux-based workloads. According to Naji Almahmoud, SUSE vice president of Global Alliances, "SUSE's collaboration with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure allows us to meet growing customer demand for the agility and cost benefits of cloud-based business-critical applications…"

Via a bring-your-own-subscription arrangement, SUSE customers will be able to transfer existing SUSE subscriptions to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure so they can deploy new workloads or migrate existing workloads from their current datacenter to Oracle Cloud. There will be no additional cost imposed by SUSE for this new addition, and customers will be able to continue taking advantage of their existing relationship with SUSE support.

Vinay Kumar, VP of Product Management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, said, "SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers enterprises more choice as they transition to the cloud." Kumar added, "Oracle and SUSE have a common goal of providing open and reliable infrastructure to support our customers' digital transformation."
