On Thursday March 31st at their inaugural Cloud Day in San Francisco, Intel re-launched and expanded their Cloud Builders program, with SUSE as one of the initial members of the ecosystem. The announcement is part of Intel’s ‘Cloud for All’ initiative, which aims to develop industry-wide standards for easy-to-deploy cloud technology and to encourage the rollout of new cloud platforms. The new Cloud Builders site includes Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) use cases and is designed to help organizations create more efficient cloud platforms through better use of infrastructure as a service orchestration and automation.
Partnering comes naturally to SUSE, it’s part of our DNA. Our expertise is providing open, agile infrastructure for the data center and cloud, and we work with software, hardware and channel partners across the globe to provide complete solutions for our customers, ensuring they meet their requirements without locking them in to one vendor’s technology. That’s why we’re excited about Cloud Builders. The idea behind Cloud Builders is to create a collaborative environment that helps lower technical barriers and accelerate innovation so enterprises and cloud service providers can build, operate, and optimize clouds based on easy-to-deploy and fully optimized infrastructure. On the Cloud Builders site, ecosystem partners like SUSE can publish reference architectures, whitepapers, solutions blueprints, and solution briefs, individually or jointly with other Cloud Builder ecosystem members, which help accelerate deployments targeted at the most prioritized use cases in the market today.
Take a look at the SUSE microsite in Cloud Builders where you’ll find information about SUSE OpenStack Cloud including joint reference architectures with our hardware partners and customer success stories.
