The combined company brings together a Linux operating system, a Kubernetes management platform, and a host of edge capabilities that will give enterprises the power to innovate everywhere. Suse and Rancher, in collaboration with a broad open source community, try to bring innovation and stability for the enterprise.
Together, the two companies will develop solutions that address today’s complexity for enterprises with a focus on new innovations in edge computing. “I knew Suse was the right company for us because of our shared ethos, viewpoint and philosophy of open source driving value to business leaders,” said Sheng Liang, former Rancher CEO and now the new President of Engineering and Innovation at Suse. “Together, we are committed to making a significant impact on enterprise business across the globe, supporting each and every customer as they navigate cloud solutions and modernize infrastructure in a way that makes sense for their workflows.”
A shared commitment to the true ethos of open source and the greater community is what brought these independent companies together, and what will set Suse apart as IT leaders across the globe evaluate options for business transformation. Suse and Rancher’s mutual customers and partners agree. “We need to innovate in the data center and the cloud, and in order to be agile, we cannot commit to a single, heavy vertical stack. Suse and Rancher deliver an open approach to open source software that can respond to evolving, digital needs,” said Jason Daniels, CTO, Law&Order Portfolio at Fujitsu.
