LSD today announced that it is augmenting its Managed Kubernetes Platform with SUSE Rancher solution offering by achieving SUSE Platinum partner and Managed Service Provider (MSP) status. Currently, LSD is the only partner to achieve Platinum status in Sub-Saharan Africa. These achievements are a key part of LSD’s strategy of delivering certified expert services to customers that now features SUSE Rancher, SUSE NeuVector and Harvester. The partnership level means that LSD can offer certified managed services to their customers, including enterprise-grade container security through SUSE’s recent acquisition of NeuVector.
”LSD is a long-standing partner with SUSE. They have proven their commitment by their high level of technical certification held” says Ton Musters, SVP Channel & Cloud EMEA, APJ, GC for SUSE.
“LSD has been working with Rancher for many years and manages retailers, banks and a Telco’s primary estate. Their management of other Kubernetes clusters is also fantastic, especially the hyperscale versions such as AWS EKS. LSD has incorporated SUSE Rancher, NeuVector and Harvester into our main offering as the value it brings to our clients is fantastic and our technology team loves working on it” says Deon Stroebel, Head of Solutions for LSD Open.
