SUSE e Microsoft annunciano Enterprise Linux Kernel per Azure

Un nuovo annuncio è stato fatto per quanto riguarda di SUSE e la disponibilità del kernel Linux enterprise che viene creato appositamente per Microsoft Azure.

Di conseguenza, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 on-demand instances now run on a custom-tuned kernel for workloads on Microsoft Azure. The tailored version provides better performance and boot speeds, and also offer a decreased memory footprint.

The co-operation between Microsoft and SUSE should adjust and secure open source solutions. The improvements should allow customers to manage complexity via services that are designed to power digital transformation.

Naturalmente, there is more – the Azure-tailored enterprise Linux kernel also enables access to new Azure features. The idea is to help users to become more agile.

As explained by Gerald Pfeifer, the vice president of Products and Technology Programs at SUSE, this collaboration is based on meeting customers’ evolving needs, as well as empowering innovation and minimizing disruption to businesses. "Optimized SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for Azure public cloud users is a direct result of SUSE’s open, open source approach to solving real-world customer challenges,” Pfeifer added.

What is Microsoft’s position on the collaboration?

"We’ve worked closely with SUSE to ensure customers using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server have a first-class experience with Microsoft Azure. The new Azure-tuned kernel allows those customers to quickly take advantage of new Azure services such as Accelerated Networking with SR-IOV, Write Accelerator and other functionality on a cadence that aligns with the Azure engineering team’s release cycle,” KY Srinivasan, general manager, Enterprise Open Source Group at Microsoft Corp said.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 is also planned to include performance benefits, as well as a potentially 25 percent faster network throughput and a 23 percent reduction in average latency.

Per impostazione predefinita, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 instances on Azure will run on the customized kernel. Tuttavia, it should be noted that customers are allowed to switch back to the standard kernel with the help of the package manager known as Zypper.

Infine, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with the Microsoft Azure-tuned kernel is already available in the Azure Marketplace with standard pricing and support.
