High-availability for uninterrupted service – SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability extension

Datalounges expertise ensures that you can utilize high availability clustering to automate application and data recovery. We build flexible, policy-driven clustering solutions to implement highly available Linux clusters and eliminate single points of failure. Servers are continuously monitored, and when a fault or failure occurs, the workload is transferred from one server to another, or the application is automatically restarted on a known working system. This helps you maintain business continuity and minimize unplanned downtime.

Management of your Linux environments with SUSE Manager

SUSE Manager is designed to help your enterprise DevOps and IT Operations teams reduce complexity and regain control of your IT assets with a single tool to manage Linux systems across a variety of hardware architectures, Linux distributions, hypervisors as well as container, IoT and cloud platforms.

Datalounges has the expertise to help you create and optimize a SUSE Manager infrastructure for your Linux environments so you can do patching and configuration for faster, consistent and repeatable server deployment, while helping to optimize operations and reduce costs. With automated monitoring, tracking, auditing, and reporting of your systems, VMs, and containers across your development, test, and production environments, you can ensure compliance with internal security policies and external regulations.

Application Delivery

Deploying and adopting Cloud Native applications is quickly becoming a necessity for digitalization efforts and managing how such applications are consumed is an important factor of successful projects.

Considering aspects of cloud native application delivery can be a complicated effort, which is why it is important to work with a partner with the necessary skills and experience to help you to be successful. It is a concept of best practices, technologies and Datalounges engineering that help you to have both industry leading tools for Devs and controls for Ops.

Datalounges helps you create a CI/CD pipeline with vulnerability checking and easy to use provisioning for cloud native applications on any Kubernetes platform.

Running containers

Kubernetes is the solution of choice to run your cloud native applications. Rich in functionality but complicated to deploy and maintain. Datalounges have experience in building infrastructures for running containers for easy deployment according to vendor specifications in your Public Cloud or Private Cloud of choice.

Rancher Labs

Rancher Labs delivers software based on open source that enables organizations to distribute and administer Kubernetes at scale, on any infrastructure cross data center, branch offices, and the network edge. Recently SUSE signed a definitive agreement to acquire Rancher Labs. The acquisition is expected to close later this year, 2020, and will bring in several new solutions into the SUSE portfolio. Rancher Labs currently delivers these solutions:

Rancher – Rancher is their flagship product and it centrally manages on-premise or hybrid clusters to ensure security and accelerate transformation. Rancher is built to address the needs of both the DevOps teams deploying applications with Kubernetes and the IT staff responsible for delivering enterprise-critical services.

RKE – RKE is a fast, CNCF-certified Kubernetes distribution that runs within containers and solves the common problem of installation complexity. With RKE, the operation of Kubernetes is automated and independent of the operating system and platform running in the datacenter.

Longhorn – Longhorn is a distributed block storage built for Kubernetes. Longhorn was started by Rancher Labs, however it is now a CNCF-governed project. When used with Rancher, Longhorn increases developer and ITOps efficiency by making persistent storage easy to deploy, and at a lower cost than proprietary alternatives.

K3S – K3s is a Kubernetes distribution for agile development in the cloud. The lightweight architecture of K3S means it can spin up a production-grade cluster in less than a minute. K3S was recently accepted as a sandbox project at CNCF.

Datalounges has certified Rancher Operators on board and is ready to get you started on Rancher solutions.
