Updated: SUSE Cloud 3 Admin Appliance 1.2.0 available

Continuing in our efforts to create the SUSE Cloud 3 Admin Appliance into a quick and easy way to deploy OpenStack, we have reached version 1.2.0. You can download the Standard or Embedded version. The major change in this version has to do with the consolidation of the logic code required to maintain both images and splitting out some obvious differences between the two appliances. The Embedded appliance now distinctly has the customer center registration and patch mirror process removed as part of the setup as it slowed down the deployment and ease of use it was intended to have. Although it still maintains its ease of use and deployment it is much quicker now and requires less required input to get OpenStack up and running. This is certainly ideal for quick testing and kicking the tires with SUSE Cloud and OpenStack. The Standard version is still the same, but again has all of the same logic rolled up into it, but the steps still remain the same. It is ideal for deploying SUSE Cloud into a production environment.
