SUSE today announced its plans to celebrate the company's 20th anniversary with a year-long campaign highlighting the company's history and future. The long-time provider of enterprise Linux solutions will showcase major historical milestones and discuss plans for the future through a series of worldwide events that will include SUSECon 2012, the premier event for SUSE customers, partners and enthusiasts.
"We have a lot to celebrate in 2012," said Nils Brauckmann, president and general manager, SUSE. "SUSE today is the recognized market leader in several important segments, and is well positioned to take advantage of an ever expanding market for commercial Linux and open source technologies. We plan to recognize the people, the events and the technological developments that have helped bring us to where we are today."
SUSE plans to roll out information and activities highlighting how the company has evolved from its early beginnings in the open source industry, to forging partnerships with the world's leading technology vendors in order to deliver innovation, investment protection and affordable enterprise-quality software infrastructure to a generation of customers.
SUSE's roots date back to September 1992, when three German university math students and a recently graduated software engineer formed a company to develop software and function as an advisory UNIX group. Seeing the potential of Linux, the team decided to distribute Linux operating systems and offer support services. It chose the name "S.u.S.E," using an acronym for a German term that meant software and systems development. The name was eventually shortened to "SUSE."

Corporate Milestones
In its 20-year history, SUSE has undergone two notable ownership changes. SuSE Linux AG was acquired by Novell Inc. in early 2004. Seven years later, Novell was acquired by The Attachmate Group, which reestablished SUSE as an autonomous business unit focused on engineering excellence, smart innovation, and enduring customer and partner relationships.
For two decades, SUSE has brought the power of Linux to a wide variety of customers, including the London Stock Exchange, BMW, Walgreen's, SONY, Sesame Workshop, and Office Depot. Many customers trust SUSE Linux Enterprise to deliver a diverse range of core, mission-critical IT services, from high volume market data and trading, to manufacturing and production, to e-commerce and air traffic control, just to name a few.
"We have a rich history as a Linux pioneer. We're proud to be part of the open source community and long-serving contributors to Linux," said Hubert Mantel, an original founder of SUSE. "Celebrating our 20th anniversary provides an opportunity to reflect upon our history and share our visions for the future. The possibilities for SUSE today are more exciting than ever. Perhaps even more exciting than when we started 20 years ago."
In honor of its achievements over the last 20 years, SUSE will host a series of events worldwide including SUSECon 2012, September 18-21 at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando, Florida.
