Microsoft yesterday announced that SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLES 12) is now available on Microsoft Azure. SLES 12 is now published and available in the Microsoft Azure Gallery. You can use it for your Azure deployment. SLES 12 includes the latest technological innovations from upstream to provide enterprise customers with increased uptime, improved operational efficiency and accelerated innovation.
As with SLES 11, SUSE has published two SLES 12 images for Azure users – a standard and premium image. Premium images are identical to standard images, but also include phone and email support from SUSE. See Virtual Machines pricing and support for Linux images in Microsoft Azure for additional pricing and support information for premium images.
