Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with SUSE Linux Enterprise.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
We previously had trouble integrating Autodesk with the SUSE Manager, but the issue was resolved and improved.
SUSE Linux could provide more information about cost and the details of how clustering works.
Compared with the competition, of late actually, the solution has increased its pricing tremendously. They need to work on making it more competitive. We've recently witnessed some glitches within the product.
The price of SUSE Linux Enterprise could improve, it is too expensive.
In the next release it would be nice to see more integration and better automation of processes.
SUSE could make more APIs available.
The interface could improve.
The initial setup could be simplified. I would like to see integration with other solutions.
I think the solution needs to move away from offering so many community or feature software. They need to develop something similar to Marketplace in AWS. SUSE has a tool that allows you to patch and update and install free software to separate channels. It provides a channel to patch the operating system and add new features and another channel to deal with installing free software. When you use the tool you're dealing with everything and for security reasons I think they need to separate the free software because it's a risk, especially nowadays when we're doing a lot of fortification or strengthening the operating system. We need to have the ability to not have to deal with all the free software because it sometimes has security holes. They really should just focus on the operating system updates and give the administrator the ability to put a block on all the free software. In other words, I just want the operating system updates.
I would like to see better functionality for interacting with cloud-based systems.
We have had trouble integrating Autodesk with the SUSE manager. It is a problem in the configuration and the documentation does not properly explain how it needs to be managed.
