Novell, IBM partner on integrated Linux server
Mike Dolan writes "Let's say you own a small to medium sized business, and you want to use Linux, but you're not crazy about the idea of mixing and matching software and servers. If that's you, Novell and IBM want to talk to you about their new Integrated Stack for SUSE Linux Enterprise. This new package combines the SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) 10 with a mixture of open and proprietary IBM software that runs on top of either IBM System x (previously xServers) or BladeCenter servers. These are low-priced AMD Opteron and Intel Pentium IV and Xeon-based servers. With this package, an SMB (small or medium-sized business) can get file and print, web application, and database functionality all in one package."
