OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

SUSE has announced SUSE Linux En­ter­prise Live Patch­ing for IBM Power Sys­tems and SUSE Linux En­ter­prise Real Time 12 Ser­vice Pack 3, to max­imise the avail­abil­ity and re­spon­sive­ness of busi­ness-crit­i­cal IT sys­tems. Build­ing on the suc­cess of live patch­ing for the x86 plat­form, SUSE is the first to pro­vide this for IBM Power Sys­tems.

To­day, the busi­ness suc­cess of many or­gan­i­sa­tions de­pends on high avail­abil­ity and re­spon­sive­ness of their en­ter­prise IT sys­tems. So SUSE is ex­pand­ing its port­fo­lio of busi­ness­crit­i­cal com­put­ing in­fra­struc­ture so­lu­tions that pro­vide non-stop IT and work­load pre­dictabil­ity for these cus­tomers.

“Live patch­ing for IBM Power Sys­tems and the lat­est real-time up­dates pro­vide more up­time and pre­dictabil­ity in the en­ter­prise data cen­tre, which are es­sen­tial to cus­tomers’ abil­ity to sat­isfy the de­mands of busi­ness­crit­i­cal work­loads,” said Ger­ald

Pfeifer, VP, prod­ucts and tech­nol­ogy pro­grams at SUSE.

The live patch­ing uses SAP HANA, run­ning in the event of crit­i­cal ker­nel se­cu­rity up­dates. Cus­tomers are de­mand­ing live patch­ing as it helps them im­prove busi­ness con­ti­nu­ity and lower costs by re­duc­ing down­time, in­creas­ing ser­vice avail­abil­ity, and en­hanc­ing se­cu­rity and com­pli­ance. The live patch­ing func­tion on SUSE Linux En­ter­prise Server is al­most in­vis­i­ble, run­ning with­out any re­boots.

The SUSE Linux En­ter­prise Real Time 12 SP3 is an open source re­al­time op­er­at­ing sys­tem. It is de­signed to re­duce la­tency, and in­crease the pre­dictabil­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity of time­sen­si­tive, busi­ness-crit­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions with process and task pri­ori­ti­sa­tion as well as sched­ul­ing.
