SUSE preps its own cloud launch

SUSE

The future of the enterprise will most certainly include the cloud, and SUSE plans to remain a major player in this space.

Any thoughts that the Nürnberg-based Linux distribution vendor might be failing under the umbrella of its not-so-new owner Attachmate are pretty off the mark, if their plans for the cloud are any indication.

I had a chance to catch up with Pete Chadwick and Alan Clark at the Open Source Business Conference, and learned that the company has, far from struggling, actually just been quietly reorganizing itself post-acquisition.

As part of that reorg, the company has had to undergo some significant internal transitions in order to adjust to the new reality of their existence: unlike their one-moon-among-many-satellites role within the Novell orbit, SUSE now finds itself back in the pre-Novell role of being a completely autonomous company again.
