cloud-init and dependencies are available for SLES11 as part of SuSE Cloud at the time of this writing. You must be subscribed to the channel to get access.

I also needed cloud-init and as I don't have access to the SuSE Cloud repositories I used an image from SuSE Studio (there is an option to include cloud-init) it was for testing purposes it was enough for my needs.

I found that a lot of stuff is also available on the OpenSuSE site for SLES (but I didn't test those). (
