SUSE creates a 'Bring Your Own Subscription' for the public cloud

Written by 

SUSE now allows free transfer of existing licenses to a select number of public cloud providers and adds new support services to partners in the SUSE Cloud Service Provider program.


Linux distributor SUSE has launched a "bring-your-own-subscription" option for existing customers who want to use their SUSE subscriptions in the public cloud. In addition, SUSE is expanding services and support for partners participating in the SUSE Cloud Service Provider program.


The new facility allows SUSE customers to transfer their existing SUSE subscriptions to a SUSE Certified Cloud Provider – currently Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform - to deploy new workloads or migrate existing workloads from the data centre to the public cloud. The new service is free and SUSE customers can take advantage of their existing SUSE support relationship.


"Portable subscriptions provide our customers with the flexibility to run on-premise or in the cloud, while maintaining enterprise support for their mission-critical workloads," said Naji Almahmoud, global head of business development for SUSE. "Customers who take advantage of the bring-your-own-subscription capability at SUSE Certified Cloud Providers can protect their investment and leverage their existing SUSE support relationship, ensuring they receive the same level of SUSE service across their entire IT infrastructure—data centre, private cloud and public cloud."


In addition to the bring-your-own-subscription offer for SUSE customers, enhancements to the SUSE Cloud Service Provider program include new service and support options and a new certification program for cloud service providers.
