Last week SUSE announced the general availability of SUSE Cloud 2.0, an enterprise-ready OpenStack distribution for building private clouds. This release includes full support for Microsoft Hyper-V, helping customers set up mixed hypervisor private clouds that can be rapidly deployed and easily managed.

“Heterogeneous infrastructure is an enterprise IT fact of life, and Microsoft is committed to serving customers in mixed Windows and open source environments,” said Mike Schutz, Microsoft General Manager of Product Marketing. “Now, SUSE Cloud 2.0 support for compute nodes running Microsoft Hyper-V can help customers create private clouds that include multiple hypervisors, providing increased flexibility and workload optimization.”

For several years now, Microsoft and SUSE have worked side-by-side to deliver unified solutions, integrated tools, and first-class support for mixed Windows and Linux environments. This announcement is the next step in our longstanding efforts with SUSE, supporting interoperability from the datacenter to the cloud.

For more on how this release is delivering more flexibility in designing cloud deployments and why Microsoft Hyper-V is “a real star in the SUSE Cloud 2.0 feature set,” please see the SUSE blog.
