SUSE Studio 1.3 Released

Apr 19, 2013

New features in SUSE Studio 1.3 include enhanced cloud integration, VM platform support, and lifecycle management.

SUSE has released SUSE Studio 1.3, the latest version of the company’s application image-building tool. According to the announcement, this release can help customers “more easily deploy and manage self-contained, portable workloads across virtual and cloud environments such as Amazon EC2, OpenStack and SUSE Cloud.”

SUSE Studio 1.3 includes the following new features: SUSE Cloud integration, support for Microsoft Hyper-V, enhanced cloud support for Amazon EC2, and improved lifecycle management. The software is tightly integrated with SUSE Cloud – SUSE’s OpenStack-powered cloud computing platform. With version 1.3, users can select SUSE Cloud as their pre-defined application image format. And, with the webhooks feature, all SUSE Studio-built cloud images are automatically imported into SUSE Cloud, thus making it easier to provision new cloud workloads and improve cycle times.

Studio 1.3 also includes an improved interface for Amazon EC2 deployments and lets Amazon Web Services customers upload and launch Amazon EC2 instances directly from SUSE Studio. Additionally, SUSE Studio now supports the following platforms: VMware/VirtualBox, Xen, KVM, Hyper-V, OVF virtual machine, SUSE Cloud, OpenStack, and Amazon EC2.
