This past week, there appeared on the Cool Solutions pages an article outlining a major trend. Governments and multinational businesses are embracing open-source platforms at an astounding rate. Another major firm, Unisys, has recently joined forces with Novell. Unisys has just certified SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on their ES7000 server line. This puts them with Hewlett-Packard and several other major companies making similar moves in recent months.
"Unisys said the SLES 9 certification on the ES7000 means it is the only vendor with the certification that also has 32-bit and 32 processor (32 way) 64-bit server certification from Novell for SLES 9."
"Unisys customers can now also purchase Novel SLES 9 licenses for the ES7000 servers for both 32- and 64-bit configurations of four to thirty-two processors. SLES 9 was released in May of 2004 and was arguably the first mainstream enterprise Linux distribution to include the full 2.6 kernel."
