外媒TechCrunch报道:SUSE可能最众所周知的就是其Linux发行版;但长期以来,它在OpenStack生态系统一直是个悄无声息但屹立不倒的玩家。不过在过去这几个月,这家德国公司成为了这个领域实力比较强的竞争对手之一,尤其是现在我们看到OpenStack方面出现了相当大的合并。

今天,SUSE宣布它从步履维艰的HPE手里收购了OpenStack和Cloud Foundry(OpenStack的基础设施即服务平台即服务)资产及人才。在此之前,HPE决定抛售(或者用HPE自己的话来说是“拆分-合并”)软件业务,卖给Micro Focus,包括惠普当初斥资110亿美元收购,后来因此账面价值减少近90亿美元的Autonomy。而兜了一个大圈子的是:Micro Focus还拥有SUSE,现在SUSE收购了HPE的OpenStack和Cloud Foundry资产。

SUSE认为,此举将帮助自己夯实现有的OpenStack产品组合;收购Cloud Foundry及其他平台即服务资产让它得以向市场推出自家的随时可供企业使用的SUSE Cloud Foundry解决方案。

SUSE的首席执行官尼尔斯·布劳克曼(Nils Brauckmann)说:“促使这起收购的推动力是,SUSE致力于提供可以为我们的客户和合作伙伴提供企业价值的开源软件定义基础设施技术。这还表明了我们在如何结合内部自身发展和技术收购,打造自己的业务。这项战略再次向市场和全球的开源社区传达了一个强烈的讯息,那就是SUSE是一家不断前进的公司。”

SUSE还将成为HPE在Linux、OpenStack和Cloud Foundry方面的首选开源合作伙伴。

不过,HPE并没有完全退出OpenStack和Cloud Foundry行业。HPE将以OEM方式购买SUSE的OpenStack和Cloud Foundry,用于其自己的Helion OpenStack和Stackato解决方案,不过尽管HPE表示此举只是意味着它在“完善”其战略,旨在“专注于开发下一代的混合云解决方案”,但我还是无法想象其客户不会开始担忧Helion平台的未来。

SUSE, which probably is best known for its Linux distribution, has long been a quiet but persistent player in the OpenStack ecosystem. Over the last few months, though, the German company has also emerged as one of the stronger competitors in this world, especially now that we are seeing a good bit of consolidation around OpenStack.

Today, SUSE announced that it is acquiring OpenStack and Cloud Foundry (the Platform-as-a-Service to OpenStack’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service) assets and talent from the troubled HPE. This follows HPE’s decision to sell off (or “spin-merge” in HPE’s own language) its software business (including Autonomy, which HP bought for $11 billion, followed by a $9 billion write-off) to Micro Focus. And to bring this full circle: Micro Focus also owns SUSE, and SUSE is now picking up HPE’s OpenStack and Cloud Foundry assets.

SUSE argues that this move will help it strengthen its existing OpenStack portfolio and that the acquisition of the Cloud Foundry and other Platform-as-a-Service assets will allow it to bring its own enterprise-ready SUSE Cloud Foundry solution to market.

“The driving force behind this acquisition is SUSE’s commitment to providing open source software-defined infrastructure technologies that deliver enterprise value for our customers and partners,” said Nils Brauckmann, CEO of SUSE. “This also demonstrates how we’re building our business through a combination of organic growth and technology acquisition. Once again, this strategy sends a strong message to the market and the worldwide open source community that SUSE is a company on the move.”

SUSE will also become HPE’s preferred open source partner for Linux, OpenStack and Cloud Foundry.

HPE isn’t fully retiring from the OpenStack and Cloud Foundry game, though. HPE will OEM SUSE’s OpenStack and Cloud Foundry technology for its own Helion OpenStack and Stackato solutions, though while HPE says that this move simply means it is “evolving” its strategy “to focus on developing the next evolution of hybrid cloud solutions,” I can’t image that its customers won’t start wondering about the Helion platform’s future.
