WALTHAM, Mass.—30 Nov 2006—Novell today introduced Novell® Open Enterprise Server 2, announcing support from software partners and delivering a training and technical services promotion to help more customers take advantage of Open Enterprise Server. Backup solution vendors CA, Commvault, Symantec and Syncsort along with anti-virus software vendors McAfee, Symantec and Trend Micro are planning support for Novell Open Enterprise Server 2, which is scheduled to ship in 2007. The next Open Enterprise Server will feature virtualization, storage and file management innovations and complete the shift to providing workgroup services completely on SUSE Linux Enterprise, while helping long-time customers maintain their NetWare investment.

"Open Enterprise Server is designed to fit with today's environments that run a mix of platforms including Linux*, Windows* and NetWare," said Kent Erickson, vice president and general manager of Workgroup Solutions for Novell. ""It delivers advanced workgroup and networking services on Linux, letting customers get in on all the benefits of Linux without giving up the proven Novell workgroup services they've come to rely on.
