SUSE Appliance Program Embraced by ISVs and Developers

Novell receives more than one new account request per minute for SUSE Studio Online in the first week after the launch

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Novell today announced overwhelming support for the SUSE(R) Appliance Program, the first, complete, end-to-end solution that enables Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to rapidly build, update, configure and go-to-market with fully-supported software and virtual appliances. Appliances are transforming the way ISVs market and package software as they simplify the installation and configuration of software, eliminating unexpected costs and making the sales process frictionless.

Since the launch one month ago, more than 2,000 ISVs have signed up for the SUSE Appliance Program and thousands of people have registered for SUSE Studio Online, the Program's free, Web-based tool that builds complete software appliances in a matter of minutes. SUSE Studio Online allows for mass customization, enabling each ISV to build a unique configuration of the operating system that is fully supported by Novell. The SUSE Appliance Program enables ISVs to create one integrated stack for their application, and then seamlessly deploy that stack across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

The following numbers show the full extent of the industry's interest in SUSE Studio Online since its launch on July 28, 2009:

  • 20,000 total requests for new accounts in the first four weeks of the Program, with more than one request per minute in the first week alone following the launch
  • 28,000 appliances built
  • 13,000 appliances tested with SUSE Studio's innovative integrated test function
  • Since the beta program started four months ago, more than 27,000 total accounts created

"The SUSE Appliance Program is quickly delivering on our promise to transform the way that ISVs deliver software to their customers," said Markus Rex, senior vice president and general manager of Open Platform Solutions at Novell. "We're thrilled by the enthusiastic reception SUSE Studio Online has received from ISVs, developers, channel partners and customers. The SUSE Appliance Program will fundamentally shift the paradigm of software deployment by making it easy to build, manage and sell software appliances to create a better software experience for customers."

Availability

SUSE Studio Online is a free service available now at www.susestudio.com. The SUSE Appliance Toolkit - a suite of tools that includes update, access and configuration management capabilities - will be available later this year and can be previewed now.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
