Support levels

Lenovo sells SUSE subscriptions that offer either Lenovo support or SUSE direct support. The advantage of the Lenovo support options is that they all offer 7x24 support at significantly lower cost than vendor-provided support options.  Support from SUSE comes in two options: Priority subscriptions or Standard subscriptions.

  • Priority subscriptions have support offered 7x24 - seven days a week, 24 hours per day
  • Standard subscriptions have support offered 5x12 - Monday to Friday, local business days, typically offered from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM local hours

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES)

This section describes the subscriptions available for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) supported by world-class Lenovo Services.

SLES is available in the following deployment scenarios:

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) Physical or Virtual Node: This is the basic SLES x86 Linux Operating System (OS) is sold in a single 2-socket subscription. This subscription supports either two physical sockets of SLES or two virtual machines using SLES.
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) Virtualization Unlimited: This subscription offers unlimited “bare metal” SLES OS instances for virtual machines. This version includes Live Patching, which allows you to update security patches without rebooting machines and without waiting for your next service window. Note: This subscription does include the 1-2 socket physical server OS and unlimited SLES VMs.
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Live Patching: This offering allows for kernel updates in real time, and almost eliminates the need for down time during maintenance upgrades. SUSE Linux Enterprise Live Patching is a simple open-source solution that delivers live kernel patching without the need to reboot. With this subscription offering based on the kGraft project, you can perform patching without interrupting your mission-critical workloads and in-memory databases, saving the cost of downtime and increasing service availability. Because it builds on to the existing SUSE Linux Enterprise kernel infrastructure It inherits the support that is currently running on the existing infrastructure. If the server holds SUSE support, Live Patching PN requires SUSE support. If the server holds Lenovo Support, Live Patching part number requires Lenovo Support.

Customers can purchase SLES subscriptions from Lenovo through the following ways:

  • CTO (Configure to Order) – this is the OEM subscription that is added to the Lenovo server quotes.
    • Socket-based per Server
  • BTO (Build to Order) – this is the OEM subscription that can be added to any customer quotes.
    • Socket-based per Server

Each SLES OS subscription can provide an OS instance for up to two sockets or two virtual machines. Other options include unlimited SLES virtual machines. A “virtualization unlimited” subscription provides both the 2-socket OS and unlimited bare metal SLES virtual machines.

The following table lists the available SLES subscriptions.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Add-Ons

This section provides information on add-on packages that can be sold with the SLES Operating System from Lenovo. Any “Add-On” package will inherit or adopt the support levels of the underlying server OS (i.e. Standard or Priority support, Lenovo Support or SUSE Support).

  • SLES High Availability Extension. SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability (HA) Extension provides mature, industry-leading open source high availability clustering technologies that are easy to set up and use. It can be deployed in both physical and virtual environments. Together with Geo Clustering, the SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension helps maintain business continuity, protect data integrity and maximize service uptime for mission-critical Linux workloads across local to unlimited geographic distances.
  • Load Balancing. SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension includes IPv4 and IPv6 load balancing, allowing you to handle node and service failures and redirect requests to other nodes to maintain the availability and performance of the service.
  • Clustering. SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension supports the Corosync cluster engine and OpenAIS—the leading standards-based communication protocol for server and storage clustering. Also included is Pacemaker, a highly scalable cluster resource manager with a flexible policy engine that supports n-node clusters. Using Corosync, OpenAIS and Pacemaker, you can continuously monitor the health of your resources, manage dependencies and automatically stop and start services based on configurable rules and policies.
  • SUSE Geo Clustering. Geo clustering provides rules-based failover for automatic and manual transfer of a workload to another cluster outside of the affected area. Your mission-critical workloads are transferred away from the affected region to continue to run. Geo Clustering is included with the High Availability Extension subscription for SLES Release 15 and later.
  • SLES Long Term Service Pack Support (LTSS). SLES LTSS extends the support period of a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server update for up to three (3) years beyond the standard Service Pack end-of-life. Long Term Service Pack Support significantly lengthens the supported transition period for service pack migrations and extends the life of your SUSE Linux Enterprise Server deployment. You can reduce upgrade risks and costs while ensuring the stability and predictability of your deployment. SUSE typically releases a Service Pack every 12 to 18 months.

SUSE Manager

This section provides information on SUSE management products.

  • SUSE Manager Server. SUSE Manager is software that can automate all aspects of IT environments and processes. The SUSE Manager subscriptions sold by Lenovo are sold by number of nodes vs per socket.

    SUSE Manager was designed to help your enterprise DevOps and IT Operations teams reduce complexity and regain control of their IT assets with a single tool to manage Linux systems across a variety of hardware architectures, hypervisors as well as containers, IoT and cloud platforms. It automates Linux server and IoT device provisioning, patching and configuration for faster, consistent and repeatable server deployments helping to optimize operations and reduce costs. And 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.

  • SUSE Manager for Retail Branch Servers. An infrastructure management software optimized and tailored specifically for the retail industry. From Mainframe and HPC Clusters, bare metal servers and VMs down to point of service terminals, kiosks, self-service, and reverse-vending systems Linux deployments, helps reduce costs, optimize operations, and ensure compliance across your IT infrastructure while reducing complexity and regaining control.
  • SUSE Manager Virtualization Management. Automating Linux server management with SUSE Manager reduces administrator effort even as the size and complexity of your Linux deployments grow, and helps you improve IT service quality by maximizing system uptime. You can perform Linux server management and provisioning tasks faster and with fewer errors, for non-stop service delivery.
  • SUSE Manager Lifecycle Management. This subscription delivers functionality for updating servers. It also includes advanced server management capabilities that increase your Linux environment’s scalability and enhance your IT staff productivity. It enables you to deploy, configure and redeploy Linux systems from a single, centralized console. Simplify management and reduce operational expenditure with enhanced package staging and improved APIs for managing packages, patches and configurations. Moving packages across multiple stages, such as development, QA and production, is now a simple UI-based task.
  • SUSE Manager Monitoring. A so-called monitoring scout will execute commands via ssh on the client and gather data from the output. So, the configuration of monitoring mainly consists in allowing the server to remotely execute commands on the clients.

SUSE Subscription Renewals from Lenovo

SUSE licenses are subscription-based, which means that the client has the right to use the software only as long as they have an active subscription. Subscription licenses include updates and support.

Lenovo can renew SUSE part numbers with additional 1, 3 or 5 years of usage. A Subscription and Support (S&S) renewal extends the subscription for a year or more. The customer does not have to purchase a new software license.

The benefit of renewing subscriptions with Lenovo means that you save time and money. Lenovo offers a single point of contact for hardware and software support, so you don’t have to lose time maintaining vendor contact lists and can instead focus on things that matter to your business. Allow us to protect your business agility and product capabilities with your current technology and maintain 24x7 access to service and support (depending on the support contract the company holds). In addition, timely renewals avoid services lapse, non-compliance, and costly reinstatement fees.

If you want to renew your subscriptions, start by contacting our renewal team:
