SUSE Updates OpenStack Cloud Solution

As a platform, OpenStack supports multiple virtualization hypervisor technologies, including VMware. Jarvis explained that the SUSE Cloud solution leverages a VMware vCenter driver, which enables customers to use existing VMware virtualized nodes or add additional VMware nodes.

Looking forward, Jarvis said next two big things for SUSE Cloud will be high availability and the OpenStack Icehouse release currently set for April 17. Among the new technologies in Icehouse is a database-as-a-service project, which Jarvis said will provide more flexibility when setting up cloud workloads.

"Icehouse will continue the evolution and provide enhancements to the current OpenStack components, which is critical to ensuring the long-term vision of the project," he said.
