openSUSE Leap 42.3 Cloud Images Debut for Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Azure

openSUSE Leap 42.3 launched for 64-bit and 32-bit platforms at the end of July 2017, based on the commercial SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 12 Service Pack (SP) 3 operating system, and it’s currently the latest stable release of the popular RPM-based Linux OS. It ships with the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel and up-to-date packages. Recently, openSuSE Project’s Douglas DeMaio announced that cloud images of openSUSE Leap 42.3 are available for Google Compute Engine (GCE), Microsoft Azure, as well as Amazon Web Services (AWS EC2), though the latter are still waiting to be approved by the AWS Marketplace team.
