Heterogeneity is a fact of life in IT. The solutions that best meet your needs may require products from more than just one vendor. Microsoft and SUSE understand that delivering the choice you expect along with the control over complexity and cost you want demands more than just top-notch engineering, enterprise products that work, and a fair price. It calls for flexibility and willingness to work with others—even to the point of improving a competing technology. That’s why Microsoft and SUSE formed an alliance. We work together in a strategic partnership to deliver unified solutions, integrated tools, and first-class support for your mixed Windows and Linux infrastructure: from physical to virtual, from the data center to the cloud. With this alliance, you get access to solutions that can help you break down siloes and streamline systems management, a dedication to increased interoperability, and assurance that management processes and protocols will work seamlessly across an on-premises or cloud infrastructure that’s right for you.For your mixed environment, the alliance is a shared commitment to a better experience, better economics now and in the long run, and a strategy that will help move IT forward – your way.Offers ChoiceWe are an alliance engineered towards putting customers firstMake the most of your investments, now and in the futureLeveraging the best of both worlds, Linux and WindowsYou can direct IT budget resources to innovation and not to maintenanceBetter economics now and in the long termCommitted to InteroperabilityWe are doing together what no single vendor can do aloneCollaboration at all levels, from the datacenter to the cloudUnified solutions to break down and replace technology silosFirst-class support for your mixed environmentOpen Path to the CloudWe can help you move IT forward, your wayConsolidate, simplify and better manage your mixed environmentAssurance that management processes and protocols will work across your cloud infrastructureDeep mixed-source application monitoring_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________The information presented herein is current as of June 15, 2012.
