- 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.
Our implementation of Suse Linux was smooth. We configured a template for our organizational needs and then used it to deploy on multiple machines. The Auto YaST package makes automated installation convenient.
- 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.
I have been using the product for several years now. I have been very satisfied with it and the way it has integrated into many of the solutions that we have placed in service. Suse Linux (SLES) is a mature, solid Linux offering. I recommend that companies, which have not reviewed its potential, take a second look.
The Oracle database and application server, and the Orarun SuSE package made deploying those products so easy. It even allowed us to move most of the Oracle software configuration effort away from us to DBAs and application support personnel.
I do not know if YaST or Orarun made the most impact in our organization. Both made life a lot easier. YaST just made administration a breeze.
Any company looking to standardize on a Linux platform should seriously review this product. It has served me well for many years.
