SLES has a thirteen-year product lifecycle for major versions. The current support model consists of 10 years of general support, followed by up to 3 years of paid Long Term Service Pack Support (LTSS). Major versions are released at an interval of 3–4 years, while minor versions (called “Service Packs”) are released about every 12 months. SLES receives more intense testing than the upstream openSUSE community product.

SLES 13 and SLES 14 version numbers were skipped. Advisories are published at https://www.suse.com/support/update/.

More information is available on the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server website.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
cat /etc/os-release
