Published by SUSE Pass
Based on SLES 11 SP3 64-bit x86

SUSE OpenStack Cloud 4 Admin is here!

This image incorporates the SUSE Cloud 3 Deployment Guide and automates it through a simple script. It is pre-populated with all of the right media in order to speed things up for deployment.

This Embedded version has all of the software repositories pre-populated so you don’t have to wait an hour for them to be mirrored down.

Null Physical

Preload USB Image

This is an ideal format if you are planning to perform installations on physical machines. Your appliance’s disk image will be wrapped in a simple bootable installer that asks only which hard disk to install to, and packaged for use on a USB stick.

Preload ISO (.iso)

This is an ideal format if you are planning to perform installations on physical machines. Your appliance’s disk image will be wrapped in a simple bootable installer that asks only which hard disk to install to, and packaged for use on optical media.

Null Virtual

VMware Workstation / VirtualBox (.vmdk)

For virtual machines on VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM-based hypervisors. Test an appliance without formatting any hard disk. VirtualBox and VMware applications are available for most host operating systems. KVM virtualization is for Linux only.

Null Cloud

SUSE Cloud / OpenStack / KVM (.qcow2)

If you plan to use SUSE Cloud services to host your server, this format will properly configure the appliance for you to do so. Use WebHooks to inform your cloud of a new image, and upload it automatically.
