The new OpenStack assets will become part of SUSE OpenStack Cloud, and the Cloud Foundry and PaaS assets will make it possible for SUSE to produce a certified, enterprise-ready SUSE Cloud Foundry PaaS solution for all in the SUSE ecosystem.
In addition, HPE will name SUSE as its preferred open source partner for Linux, OpenStack and Cloud Foundry solutions. And SUSE has become a platinum member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation and joined the board.
Back in September, SUSE's parent company, Micro Focus, acquired the software arm of Hewlett Packard Enterprise in a deal estimated to be worth US$8.8 billion.
SUSE global marketing and alliances chief Michael Miller (pictured) said the IaaS and PaaS deal would be completed in the first quarter of 2017.
"A team of highly talented open source engineers with valuable experience in areas such as OpenStack IaaS, Cloud Foundry PaaS, Docker Containers and Kubernetes will be joining SUSE once the transaction is complete," Miller said.
"This addition to the SUSE development team means we can rapidly accelerate our product roadmaps and increase the pace and scope of innovation that we provide to our upstream communities and to our customers."
