SUSE Acquires HPE OpenStack Cloud Technology and Talent

Linux vendor SUSE is acquiring OpenStack cloud and Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) technology and staff from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) in a deal announced on November 30. Financial terms of the acquisition are not being publicly disclosed and the deal is set to close in the first quarter of 2017.

HPE’s OpenStack technology and staff will help to expand SUSE’s existing OpenStack cloud efforts, while the Cloud Foundry assets will provide SUSE with new capabilities that it did not previously offer.
