Partners Coast to Coast


December 14, 2005 4:36 pm





A couple of announcements this week point to how much progress Novell has made in building out its partner ecosystem around Linux. From the East, we have today’s announcement from IBM that Novell has been elevated to the top tier of IBM’s strategic alliance program. This puts Novell into the top 10 of IBM’s strategic partners. This is a great vote of confidence in Novell, SUSE Linux, and Linux as a whole. This will benefit Novell through joint marketing and go to market efforts, as well as through a deepening of our technology cooperation. On the other coast, one of Novell’s top solution provider partners, Novacoast, based out of Santa Barbara, put out an annoucement last week about an open source VOIP offering they’ve built using SUSE Linux, AppArmor from Novell, our identity management and directory solutions, and some additional open source technology. This is a great example of how open source and open standards are helping solution providers quickly develop new, innovative services offerings leveraging their in-house technical expertise. A long-time Novell partner, Novacoast has moved quickly to seize the new opportunities for partners that Novell’s embrace of open source has produced.
