Innovative Cost-savings Measures
With SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, you only pay for your original license and subscription. You can then create and use an unlimited number of virtual servers at no further cost.
With SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, you save on hardware, too. Its proven compatibility with a range of commodity hardware-from blades to clusters and mainframes-simplifies integration and reduces your costs. By switching to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on commodity hardware, some organisations have reduced their infrastructure costs by up to 70 percent.
Comprehensive Systems Management
Many systems administrators will tell you that installing and configuring a single server is trivial, but it becomes a daunting task when scaled across the enterprise.
