VMware selects Novell's SUSE Linux for appliances
VMware will now not only distribute and support the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) OS but also standardize its virtual appliance-based product offerings on the OS. Customers deploying SLES for VMware in VMware vSphere virtual machines will be entitled to receive a subscription to the OS that includes patches and updates as part of their newly purchased qualifying VMware vSphere license and Support and Subscription. Both companies also intend to provide customers the ability to port their SUSE Linux-based workloads across clouds.
"By delivering SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for VMware with every qualified VMware vSphere subscription, customers can more easily and cost-effectively virtualize Linux applications, accelerate their evolution to a fully virtualized datacenter and simplify portability of their applications to cloud environments," said Andrew Dutton, SVP and GM, Asia Pacific Japan, VMware.
Additionally, VMware and its solution provider partners will also offer customers the option to purchase technical support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server delivered directly by VMware for a seamless support experience.
"This strategic partnership gives VMware and Novell customers a simplified and lower-cost way to virtualize and manage their IT environments, from the datacenter to the cloud. It gives our partners exciting new solutions with which to modernize their customers’ IT environments and deliver significant ROI," said Joe Wagner, SVP and GM, Global Alliances, Novell.
