Accelerating Application Deployment across Physical, Virtual and Cloud Environments with SUSE Studio 1.2

SUSE has announced the availability of SUSE Studio Version 1.2. The latest update to the award-winning development platform is intended to help customers more easily build, update and manage application images across x86, public cloud and IBM System z deployments, reducing the overhead associated with managing a heterogeneous IT environment.

"Today's demanding business climate requires that enterprises and ISVs have every opportunity to make services available when needed and at the lowest cost possible," says Sabine Soellheim, solution marketing manager, SUSE. "This new version of SUSE Studio provides the flexibility our customers seek while allowing enterprises and ISVs to scale up and down as needed, giving them the ability to assemble, build and maintain complete portable application stacks in minutes, for deployment wherever or however they want."

Furthermore, SUSE Studio aims to build a bridge between x86 microprocessor architectures and mainframes by simplifying the creation, testing, maintenance and deployment of software applications on the mainframe. Now, customers running hundreds of mission-critical Linux images on mainframes can save time by leveraging an easy-to-use interface for building mainframe workloads.

SUSE Studio Version 1.2 is available in two editions: SUSE Studio Standard Edition for ISV customers and SUSE Studio Advanced Edition for enterprise customers. For more information on additional product updates visit
