SUSE, a well-known Linux vendor, announced back in November that it would be acquiring HPE’s OpenStack and Cloud Foundry assets in order to increase its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings. The deal is now finalized and several HPE employees are moving to SUSE, including:
- Jim Meyer, VP of Engineering, Infrastructure as a Service
- Jeff Hobbs, Director of Engineering
HPE also announced that SUSE is now its preferred partner for OpenStack and Cloud Foundry.
“The completion of this acquisition is one more important step in SUSE’s ongoing growth and expansion strategy. We’re excited to welcome the many new team members into our organization and incorporate these great technologies into our portfolio. Our customers and partners will immediately benefit from the increased depth, breadth and value this brings to our enterprise-focused software-defined infrastructure solutions.” Nils Brauckmann, CEO of SUSE
