Investing in infrastructure change is never an easy decision, but with market bias moving so obviously towards Linux and with general support for NetWare now ended it is an excellent time for NetWare users to build a more secure future.
Open Enterprise Server (OES) from Novell is a highly robust and mature operating platform that serves as a direct replacement for NetWare. Currently on Version 2 Service Pack 3, OES offers all the traditional network services enjoyed by NetWare customers, but runs on the latest SUSE Linux kernel – providing greater sustainability going forward.
Upgrading from NetWare to Open Enterprise Server means that customers have access to powerful new software innovations that help control costs and manage complexity. Good examples here include Interoperability of infrastructure being simplified with Domain Services for Windows, back-up times being greatly reduced with Dynamic Storage Technology, and server estates being consolidated using virtualization.
Best of all and because Open Enterprise Server is based upon SUSE it offers all the flexibility, device support and performance of Linux.
Securelinx services help customers to upgrade to OES2 while protecting their Novell investments into the future.
