SUSE acquires HPE’s OpenStack and Cloud Foundry assets

The company says that this move advances its strategy for enhanced infrastructure and application platforms

This week, open-source software providers SUSE entered into an agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to acquire technology and talent that will expand SUSE’s OpenStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution and accelerate its entry into the Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) market.

The company says that the acquired OpenStack assets will be integrated into SUSE OpenStack Cloud. The acquired Cloud Foundry and PaaS assets will enable SUSE to bring a certified, enterprise-ready SUSE Cloud Foundry PaaS solution to the market.

Nils Brauckmann, CEO of SUSE said :

The driving force behind this acquisition is SUSE’s commitment to providing open source software-defined infrastructure technologies that deliver enterprise value for our customers and partners.

This also demonstrates how we’re building our business through a combination of organic growth and technology acquisition. Once again, this strategy sends a strong message to the market and the worldwide open source community that SUSE is a company on the move.

As part of the transaction, HPE has named SUSE as its preferred open source partner for Linux, OpenStack IaaS and Cloud Foundry PaaS.
