Choosing a containerization DevOps solution? Choose just one: SUSE
As traditional application delivery approaches begin to transition to a more agile, cloud-native and/or microservices-based footing, many enterprises are struggling to provide the frameworks and orchestration methods that these approaches require.
While many service providers, IT organizations, and development teams have the technical skills needed to run freely available application delivery solutions like Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry in small scale or proof-of-concept scenarios, the challenge of building and maintaining enterprise-ready implementations of these complex technology platforms is a step too far for most.
Furthermore, with data governance and security being a leading concern to the larger enterprise, deploying microservices-based applications at scale in production requires significant ongoing IT expertise, vigilance, and control.
There’s also the business need for multi-cloud or hybrid deployments of applications at any stage of development, and as most companies now deploy across multiple clouds as a matter of course, multi-cloud management is becoming an additional complication for application delivery teams.
Therefore as organizations transition to modern application development and delivery strategies and consider adopting continuous deployment methodologies for microservice-based applications, many are looking to application delivery solution providers, like SUSE.
The company’s Application Delivery Solutions help enterprises modernize traditional applications; create, develop and deploy new container-based applications and services; automate application delivery processes; and standardize DevOps procedures.
That means the entire application delivery approach can be transformed into a more agile system, shrinking cycle times so that new application capabilities can be introduced into production faster, more efficiently, and at scale. This enables enterprises to respond more quickly to problems and opportunities, and — put simply — to increase business agility.
With full lifecycle management for all container applications, SUSE’s Application Delivery Solutions duo of SUSE CaaS Platform and SUSE Cloud Application Platform boost DevOps’s operational efficiency and reduce time to market. Here’s a little more detail on each.
SUSE CaaS Platform
With SUSE CaaS Platform, companies get a stable, self-updating (without service interruption), cohesive, and unified environment in which to develop, deploy, and manage container-based applications.
With full platform agnosticism, containers can run on-premises or across multiple clouds. So, whether your business is transforming to reach a cloud-first, cloud-always strategy, or you want the flexibility and security of a transitioning, hybrid foundation, SUSE CaaS Platform will help you deploy and manage applications however suits your business strategy.
SUSE Cloud Application Platform
The SUSE Cloud Application Platform lets organizations deliver new hybrid and multi-cloud capabilities and applications as quickly as is required, enabling transformation of digital infrastructures in an agile, business-focused manner. It’s possible to manage granular user and organizational deployment quotas and boundaries, so you always remain in complete control.
SUSE Cloud Application Platform helps you build cloud-first or hybrid-hosted applications and services with a Cloud Foundry Application Runtime in a Kubernetes-native architecture — capability you might expect, of course, given SUSE’s status as a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider. That creates multi-cloud flexibility, with options to deploy to Amazon, Azure, or Google Cloud.
DevOps processes are formalized and automated, driving operational efficiencies and better overall productivity, for developers, deployers, and ops teams alike. Every deployment at every stage in the dev-to-live process is handled by the platform, regardless of the cloud on which services are running.
Application delivery processes are standardized so they scale perfectly, and complete control is achieved with this lean platform that uses the technologies and methods with which your team will already be familiar.
Secure and self-healing, the SUSE Cloud Application Platform is the best way to deploy, manage, and scale your applications as you transition to a cloud-native application delivery approach.
With a reduced time to market and huge development efficiency gains, SUSE Application Delivery Solutions offer open, hybrid and multi-cloud capabilities and application delivery innovations that enable businesses to support their customers when, where and how it’s needed.
