The enhanced solution advances the already exceptional experiences offered to application developers, DevOps teams and Kubernetes platform operators. Leveraging Cilium, Suse enables Kubernetes users to strengthen application security at scale with high performance packet filtering and network communication security policies that are easy to implement and control.
“Suse’s modern application delivery solutions are easy for development and DevOps teams to use and for IT to operate,” said Thomas Di Giacomo, Suse president of Engineering, Product and Innovation. “Our support of Cilium-based networking puts our customers ahead of those using other commercially supported Kubernetes solutions. It is also an example of how we’re powering digital transformation with agile open source solutions. Consequently, we enable enterprises to continually innovate, compete and grow.”
DevOps teams can take advantage of Suse CaaS Platform to manage a wide range of workloads. This includes traditional, transitional and also cloud-native workloads.
Suse CaaS Platform 4
The newest release of Suse’s Kubernetes-based container management platform, Suse CaaS Platform 4 elevates Kubernetes platform operations with enhancements that strengthen application security, make it easier to keep pace with technology advancements and expand platform scalability options.
The solution integrates the latest releases of Kubernetes and Suse Linux Enterprise. Suse CaaS Platform 4 enables enterprises to:
- Strengthen application security at scale with Cilium-based high-performance packet filtering and network communication security policies that are easy to implement and also control. Fast packet filtering protects their cluster more efficiently. Centralized management allows customers to secure communications at scale as they define and implement security policies in a consistent and efficient way.
- Keep pace with Kubernetes advancements with non-disruptive platform updates that facilitate easier and more frequent access to new features. They can leverage new features sooner with frequent platform updates that operate smoothly behind the scenes. In addition, Suse CaaS Platform can now update itself, transitioning loads seamlessly to updated services, without expensive downtime.
- Expand platform scalability options, both up and down, to support a wider range of business use cases, workloads and environments. Customers can scale Kubernetes efficiently using a distributed installation framework that scales horizontally as the cluster grows. They can also reduce the cost of small-scale deployments with a new minimum cluster size of three nodes.
