HP and Novell … another Feb. 14 match


February 14, 2006 1:36 pm





HP and Novell are making it easier for customers to take advantage of Linux on HP servers with a new open source bundling license agreement. The Enterprise Linux 8-License Value Pack featuring Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 is a boon for those running or wanting to run a virtualized environment, because a single license is calculated per server rather than per image, so organizations can run multiple instances of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on the same physical server at no additional charge. The single subscription for all components reduces administrative costs and is flexible for use with up to four processors (single or dual core).It’s a significant combo: premier hardware from HP, secure and scalable SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell, and the Enterprise Linux 8-License Value Pack to make it even easier and more cost effective to accept what Linux has to offer.

    Another nail in the coffin for Netware. Why can’t Novell partner with HP with Netware?

    We have and do work with HP and other hardware vendors around NetWare … one example is the long list of certified hardware you can find at

  3. Any chance of you guys doing a positive story on NetWare in the near future? After all, it is still listed as a Novell product, there are hundreds of millions of users all around the world, and gosh darn it, we still use it and like it!

    BTW, there’s an online petition to “Save NetWare” on our website ( Feel free to spread the word and take the time to observe that there are quite a few folks out there that don’t like what Novell is doing to their one-time Flagship OS.
