The Raspberry Pi computer may have got its start in hobbyist and educational environments, but its low cost and low energy consumption have made it popular in other areas. This has led some organizations to seek commercial support for operating systems running on the Raspberry Pi. SUSE is now offering official support for SUSE Linux Enterprise on Raspberry Pi boards. "When SUSE created a Raspberry Pi image for SUSECon in 2016, there was a tremendous amount of interest. We saw thousands of downloads in just the first few days. Many people asked, 'When are you going to offer real support for the Raspberry Pi?' The answer is Now! Increasing customer demand drove our decision to offer commercial support for the Raspberry Pi to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for ARM (SLES for ARM). A number of large companies decided to use Raspberry Pi based monitoring solutions in their industrial manufacturing operations." More information on SUSE's support for their Pi images can be found in the company's announcement.
