Novell has a plan: Unix to Linux Migration and Virtualization

Novell's Linux revenue is strong, growing 65 per cent between the first quarter of 2006 and the first quarter of 2007, Hovespian says.

SUSE Linux 11 will include Unix-to-Linux migration tools as well as more virtualisation, interoperability and desktop features.

Objectives include increased optimisation with Windows, easier Unix migrations and reducing power consumption and the broadening of Novell's ecosystem through strengthened interoperability with SAP.

Novell currently has some 400,000 installations of OpenSUSE.

The Novell/SAP partnership, which began about a year ago, includes SAP using SUSE Linux Enterprise (64-bit version) as one of the platforms for its SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence Accelerator (SAP NetWeaver BI Accelerator) software, an appliance jointly developed with Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Intel that improves the performance of business intelligence queries and reduces administration tasks.

The two will also integrate ZENworks Orchestrator, Novell's cross-platform virtualisation management system, with the Adaptive Computing Controller tool in SAP's NetWeaver.
