Web Acceleration with SuperLumin on Novell Open Enterprise Server
By Ken Baker, Novell Connection Magazine - October 2010
Here's an excerpt:
Novell BorderManager has been around for well over a decade—giving NetWare users perimeter security with robust Internet access controls, firewall services, content filtering functions and proxy and cache services. But as NetWare customers have moved to take advantage of the advanced features in Novell Open Enterprise Server on Linux, they haven’t had a BorderManager equivalent. That has now changed. Novell has announced that SuperLumin Networks will be providing the preferred BorderManager replacement with its SuperLumin Nemesis Web acceleration product. In fact, Novell has entered into an agreement with SuperLumin to make SuperLumin Nemesis available on the Novell pricelist and to enable Novell to provide front-line support to its customers for the next two years.
Transitioning BorderManager capabilities to a trusted partner allows Novell to put more focus on its collaboration offerings, while allowing its customers to deploy a best-in-class perimeter security and proxy cache product from an expert in that field.
Many customers might wonder about the rationale behind it. In essence, it comes down to a two-fold answer. Transitioning BorderManager capabilities to a trusted partner allows Novell to put more focus on its collaboration offerings, while allowing its customers to deploy a best-in-class perimeter security and proxy cache product from an expert in that field.
SuperLumin is known as an early provider of solutions for the Linux environment and an industry leader in perimeter security. It’s interesting to note that much of the SuperLumin engineering team consists of previous Novell employees that worked on the advanced development group for BorderManager, as well as Novell Internet Caching System, Novell iChain and Volera proxy cache solutions. Leveraging this combined expertise in Linux, perimeter security and caching, SuperLumin developed Nemesis from the ground up to provide a BorderManager replacement built on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server that delivers everything BorderManager customers want—and then some.
