Pros and Cons

  • Consistently performs well across various CPU architectures.
  • It's very well supported both by the parent company, as well as SAP and other third-party companies.
  • It is upgradeable across versions. We've performed upgrades from version 10 to 11 and from 11 to 12 without any major issues.
  • Support is very good for well-known issues, but anything esoteric issues might require constant escalation to arrive at a resolution.
  • Cost can an issue at higher levels of support.
  • Yast (the gui management tool) is great for some tasks, but very cumbersome for many others.

Pros and Cons

  • Updates (security/bug fix/features) are regularly delivered and can be counted on to mitigate active exploits.
  • It's one of the only commercial Linux distributions that support BTRFS as a native filesystem.
  • Hardware support is a step above other comparable distributions.
  • Similar to RedHat with its Fedora distribution, SUSE Linux also offers the OpenSUSE distribution that features technologies that may appear in SUSE Linux in future releases.
  • Not related to the distribution, but to the company, the website can be confusing when one wants to simply open a tech support case.
  • I wish they offered a full-featured virtual machine infrastructure configuration that was as easy to install and set up like their main installer is.
  • While the configuration modules are very comprehensive, it may not be clear what valid entries should be without having to hunt for documentation that coincides with the particular version of SUSE Linux you're running.

Pros and Cons

  • It can be installed on Enterprise Servers, Mainframes, Workstations as well as desktop computers.
  • If you are using Oracle Database, Orarun Suse Package makes your Oracle Database deployment very easy.
  • We also loved the pricing model offered by Suse Linux.
  • I haven't really faced problems with Suse Linux. But one of our applications generates Excel and Word doc reports on the server. We had a little challenge making it work on Suse Linux, as Suse Linux doesn't support Windows utilities directly.

Pros and Cons

  • When it comes to ease of using / administration of Suse Linux, we found the learning curve to be very small, coming in from a Windows environment. We were able to handle our admin tasks quite well and without any interruption.
  • Response times of our server has also improved moving from an older Windows setup to the Suse Linux environment. We have not experienced bottlenecks in terms of performance of our SAP HANA and we can quickly run long running statements 300x faster with the help of Suse Linux and SAP HANA.
  • Finally, we observed that Suse Linux has more security features out of the box that what we had from our Windows setup. There's lots of great content available online for us to learn more about Suse Linux and how to implement it.
  • Our team just noticed that there are some issues we have on sharing of folders files between our CentOS and Suse Linux. The files on the shared folder have their permissions by default not available even for opening/reading even if the configuration was to give access to certain users.
  • I just wished Suse Linux had a control panel feature out of the box which enables my team to administer the entire server via the web browser, instead of installing a 3rd party add-on like Webmin.
  • As with any Linux distro available, GUI is still not as par with Windows server counterparts so part of the learning curve is navigating through the entire system, especially with the administration tools.
