Zizo Partners with SUSE to Harness the Power of Open Source

Zizo Becomes an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner with the Innovate Specialisation

Zizo, a provider of big data and edge analytics, announces today that it has joined the SUSE One Partner Programme, and completed the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 15 certification for its Zizo Edge Analytics Platform.

In a world where data is growing exponentially, Zizo builds data solutions that are flexible, adaptable and cost-effective; with the ability to be deployed either at the edge or in the data centre. And, Zizo’s Edge Analytics Platform brings data together and analyses it for sophisticated insights, enabling businesses to change from being a cost-centre business to a profit-centre business – and this impact can be felt across all sectors and at any scale of business.

As a specialist in data analysis, with a growing focus on the Edge and IoT (Internet of Things), Zizo was keen to utilise the power of an open-source operating system, alongside containers, to deploy its solutions to their customers and prospects. 

As a result, in March 2022, Zizo partnered with SUSE. SUSE specialises in business-critical Linux, enterprise container management and edge solutions. They are a global leader in innovative, reliable and secure enterprise-grade open source solutions, which are relied upon by more than 60% of the Fortune 500 to power their mission-critical workloads. 

The SUSE One Partner Programme provides Zizo with a flexible and modern structure built around targeted specialisations. The programme creates paths for organisations to come together in different ways to accelerate business opportunities. With an objective of fostering collaborative success, SUSE One is modernising how its partners build, sell, distribute, and provide services to their customers and end-users.

Additionally, as part of this partnership, Zizo completed the SLES 15 certification for its Edge Analytics Platform, meaning it is now a Certified Solution after testing and deploying SUSE’s operating system on Zizo’s edge devices. 

Peter Ruffley, CEO of Zizo, comments on the partnership: “Working with SUSE enables our technology platform to be scalable and secure, while being supported by a global organisation. As we expand the number of edge devices we support, the increased need for provisioning and maintenance means that both us as Zizo and our customers have a solution we can rely on as we scale.”

David Landry, Director of Solutions Partners & Alliances at SUSE, said: “The technology challenges of tomorrow cannot be solved by a single vendor – partnerships are critical. Our partner-first programme recognises forward-thinking businesses such as Zizo and supports them in bringing their innovative solutions to the market to further benefit their customers. We are excited to partner with Zizo and help customers simplify their digital transformation strategies.” 

Peter Ruffley concludes: “With the landscape of technology partnerships continuously evolving, organisations should look to deliver and consume solutions and services that support digital transformation, and hybrid and cloud-native environments. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with SUSE.”
