The HPE asset acquisition by SUSE is finally complete!

The acquisition of technology and talent from Hewlett Packard Enterprise by SUSE, first announced towards the end of 2016 has been concluded.
The open-source software company will use the assets to improve on its current solutions and open the door for the company to enter the Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service market.
The consolidation of these two portfolios will provide customers with a holistic solution capable of meeting all their software-defined needs. This is not just a great acquisition for SUSE, as HPE has named SUSE one of its preferred open source partners and have entered into a non-exclusive agreement in which HPE may use SUSE’s PaaS technology in HPE’s Helion OpenStack and Helion Stackato solutions.
Magda Hanekom, Business Unit Manager for SUSE at Axiz, is very excited that the acquisition is finalised. “We can now confidently incorporate both portfolios into our offerings and provide our customers with the best possible products and services. This is a huge step forward for us as a distributor as well, having two great products working together towards a common goal like this.”
