Virtualization simplified with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
Share Servers. Save Costs. Green IT Benefits.
Reduce IT Costs
Server virtualization enables you to move from a large quantity of servers to fewer servers. This will simplify operations, lower costs of cooling and power, and reduce the size of your data center. You can also increase your server utilization by consolidating physical servers and applications, thus lowering hardware, maintenance and electrical costs. Open source operating systems such as the SUSE® Linux Enterprise operating system with integrated virtualization technology let you cut costs by making minor investments in virtualization. You will reduce costs and make better use of your technologies by sharing IT resources.
You don't have to trade performance for lower costs. With the Xen-based server virtualization in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11, you can get a lot more from your data center. Try running Xen virtual server on low-cost commodity hardware. You will shrink your total cost of ownership to record lows. What's more, the paravirtualized drivers in the SUSE Linux Enterprise Virtual Machine Driver Pack make it easy to combine all your apps and services and run them with near native performance on virtualized servers. It's time to start asking more from those servers sitting on the racks in your data center.
Do More With Less
You do not need to pay high upfront costs to get the results you need. Take a look at Xen, the open source hypervisor that ships as an integrated part of the SUSE Linux Enterprise platform. Xen hypervisor in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 is optimized to integrate seamlessly into your existing environment.
Here are some of the key benefits:
Management tools make this easy on your whole IT staff. You can easily move from old to new servers when new hardware becomes available or business conditions change. Use the fully graphical and command-line virtual machine management tools for easy virtual machine (VM) administration and configuration. And tools for VM installation and lifecycle management will also minimize the impact on your staff.
And if you've already started down the enterprise virtualization path and selected a hypervisor, rest assured that Novell technology will work with any hypervisor you choose. In fact, SUSE Linux Enterprise is the only Linux operating system that has been optimized to be the perfect guest on all major hypervisors, including VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V and Xen.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 includes a faster and more scalable Xen 3.3.1 hypervisor:
In addition, we offer you a technical preview of KVM. And we offer a unique subscription policy: one subscription to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server covers all virtual images on the same physical server. Enterprise virtualization has never been more affordable.
Comprehensive Technologies Support
We understand you have to deal with a variety of technologies in your data center. We've made it easy for everything to work together. Novell technology will seamlessly integrate into your mixed environment. SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 with Xen hypervisor fully supports:
As part of the interoperability agreement with Microsoft, Novell and Microsoft jointly support:
