Driven by the need to demonstrate value to the business, IT organizations like yours are coming under increasing pressure to reduce infrastructure costs, manage capital expenditures, and consolidate operations. At the same time you need to provide more sophisticated support to the business. As result, leading IT organizations increasingly look at areas like standardization, virtualization and cloud computing for the benefits they can offer.
SUSE Studio is designed to help you build, configure and maintain portable and cloud-enabled application images or appliances, to reduce the complexity, maintenance and support costs of software deployments. Within a couple of clicks, you decide if you would like to deploy a new or existing application to a physical, virtual and/or cloud environment. SUSE Studio even lets you choose if you want to deploy your application within an x86 or mainframe environment. The ability to leverage one new or existing application for various environments dramatically improves the efficiency of deploying and maintaining applications.
SUSE Studio is a tremendous aid when it comes to reducing complexity. SUSE Studio leverages the appliance form-factor and allows you to effectively decouple the software installation from the underlying layer. This eliminates many of the versioning and patch management issues that you have to deal with normally. This can also help you standardize your applications to further reduce time, costs and maintenance for software applications deployed into your environment.
Easily extend your applications to the cloud
Build cloud-ready application images or appliances with ease. You can even deploy your application with one click directly from SUSE Studio to Amazon EC2.
Reduce development costs and accelerate time to market
SUSE Studio streamlines the configuration, maintenance and management of software applications into a few simple mouse clicks, helping you tap into new markets quickly.
Boost your mainframe application deployments
