SUSE, a leading Linux and open source cloud company, will help any organization that builds medical devices fight COVID-19.
The German-based company does so by providing free support and maintenance for its SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) operating system and container technologies. They can be embedded in medical devices. These SUSE programs and their care packages are immediately available to meet the urgent demand to place medical devices in the hands of users as quickly as possible.
In particular, SUSE believes that its Linux SUSE Embedded, with its device-optimized system fingerprint, will be ideal for medical device manufacturers. But this is not just an offering for devices that need embedded operating systems.
SUSE also offers free support for its cloud and container technologies. These include the SUSE CaaS platform, the SUSE Kubernetes platform, and the SUSE Cloud application platform, which integrates the platform as a Cloud Foundry (PaaS) service with Kubernetes and is also available to medical device manufacturers. These will help your cloud-based applications and device background services get faster and faster.
SUSE’s customers in the pharmacy, along with national labs around the world, are already using supercomputers running SLES to fight coronavirus. It includes Roche, with its new 10-fold faster COVID-19 test kit and Merck working on a vaccine.
In a statement, SUSE CEO Melissa Di Donato explained why SUSEias offers its free support:
“The current global pandemic requires more of us than just trying to survive as businesses and individuals. We are determined to help others as much as we can, doing what we do best. We have open source technology and knowledge that can help others in the fight to save lives and we will share it immediately and without charge. “
