SUSE Offers RHEL Support for Mirantis OpenStack, While Red Hat Demurs


Mirantis and SUSE are joining forces to offer seamless support for running the Mirantis OpenStack distribution not only on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) but, surprisingly, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS as well.

Many of our larger customers run two or three different Linux flavors. Now OpenStack users can get support for their major Linux distributions in one place from Mirantis, said Mirantis co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer Boris Renski. The two companies announced the partnership at the OpenStack Silicon Valley 2016 conference, taking place this week in Mountain View, California.

Mirantis will offer full support for SLES on Mirantis OpenStack. Previously, Mirantis OpenStack has not been certified/supported to run on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. This means a SUSE customer who selected Mirantis has needed to introduce another Linux, said Michael Miller,  SUSE president of strategy, alliances and marketing.

Customers can now run Mirantis OpenStack on SLES thats supported by both companies.  This means they maintain SUSE Linux Enterprise Server as their strategic platform for mission-critical workloads and OpenStack private cloud.
