SUSE Linux jumps on the open private cloud deployment train

SUSE Linux Enterprise planning private cloud deployment with OpenStack weight behind it. NVIDIA works on Linux drivers for Optimus chips.

SUSE Linux Enterprise recently announced it is working on a simplified open private cloud deployment called SUSE Cloud.

Its partner in cloud, OpenStack, has a community of more than 3,300 developers that SUSE hopes to use to give its private cloud better public support. SUSE joins other Linux distributions such as Red Hat and Ubuntu, which both have cloud ambitions.

Details for SUSE Cloud can be found on the company's website.
