SUSE Introduces Enterprise Storage 6

SUSE Enterprise Storage 6 makes Ceph more enterprise consumable with improved public cloud integration and enhanced data protection capabilities

SUSE introduced SUSE Enterprise Storage 6, the latest release of its software-defined storage solution powered by Ceph technology. The new Enterprise Storage enables IT organizations to seamlessly adapt to changing business demands while reducing IT operational expense with new features focused on containerized and cloud workload support, improved integration with public cloud, and enhanced data protection capabilities.

“SUSE is powering digital transformation with agile open source solutions like SUSE Enterprise Storage that enable enterprises to continually innovate, compete and grow,” said Brent Schroeder, CTO Americas for SUSE. “We work with the community to develop innovative open source technology that we then test and harden to ensure it is enterprise ready. We aim to transform enterprise storage infrastructure with a truly open and unified, intelligent software-defined storage solution that reduces costs and alleviates proprietary hardware lock-in for customers. SUSE Enterprise Storage 6 reflects SUSE’s ongoing commitment to making Ceph ‘enterprise consumable.’”

The University of Maine is using the Enterprise Storage to support an HPC landscape underpinning a number of research programs. Steve Cousins, supercomputer engineer for the University of Maine, said, “SUSE Enterprise Storage has already brought clear improvements to our deep learning projects, one of which requires two million files in a single directory. Putting these files into SUSE Enterprise Storage has increased performance more than 10 times compared with the previous storage solution. Thanks to the stability and ease of management of the solution, we have significantly reduced the time we spend managing live and archived data. This keeps our internal team free to focus on driving new value for the university and its life-changing research projects.”
