If you’re a Novell Open Enterprise Server customer, here’s some good news. Novell is simplifying the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server entitlement for Novell Open Enterprise Server customers, discontinuing the calculation model of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server entitlements and replacing it with a simple needs-based model. Before, customers would get a limited number of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server servers based on their Open Enterprise Server user counts. Now, they can deploy as many SUSE Linux Enterprise Server servers as they need to run “workgroup“ services.

Customers who have purchased Open Enterprise Server and have been using their SUSE Linux Enterprise Server entitlement for applications or services other than “workgroup” will have an opportunity to register these servers and continue to use them for the workloads they do today.

    This is a major improvement to the licensing terms, but
    Novell needs to make it a lot clearer that it has made this
    change.

    Novell’s “Linux” licensing is one of the most open in the
    market with the above change and the fact that its one licence
    per virtual server platform rather than a licence per instance.

    The problem is that Novell has not told anyone. It needs to
    tell people and keep telling them.
