Do-No-Evil Saturday – Part III: Novell Products and Novell Wins

Posted in Africa, Asia, Boycott Novell, Marketing, NetWare, Novell, Servers, SLES/SLED, Virtualisation, Xen at 2:12 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Novell has introduced quite a few products and other companies have introduced products that are tied to Novell. There are also some success stories. Here is a rough per-product breakdown.

GroupWise

GroupWise gets some third-party support.

ArcMail Technology, a leading provider of email archiving and management technology, today announced a partnership with Nexic that will integrate Nexic Discovery’s exporting engine for Novell GroupWise with the ArcMail Defender email archiving appliance.

Here is another example involving D2Xchange and Computhink.

Because it is tightly integrated with Novell GroupWise, it also provides a simple and affordable e-mail archival solution for organizations facing SOX, FRCP, SEC, HIPPA, and other regulatory requirements.

Migration to GNU/Linux and GroupWise is also said to encouraging. There is another migration case study.

The most recent migration the company conducted was for the Bank of Tanzania.

ZENworks

New product from Novell (press release).

Novell announced the availability of Novell® ZENworks® 7.2 Linux Management, giving customers a powerful new option for their enterprise Linux* management needs. This latest version, which includes support for SUSE® Linux Enterprise 10 from Novell and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, is the only policy-based solution on the market that offers multi-vendor Linux support.

SUSE Linux

Novell is eying growth of Linux in Asia, particularly inside governments. Who could forget ever ELCOT’s story?

Novell Suse Linux is positioning itself to be the corporate Linux of choice for today’s multi-OS corporation thanks to a series of agreements with companies such as SAP and Microsoft.

In particular Novell is interested in the government sector in Asia, which features large scale deployments where a full-featured desktop may not be necessary.

Open Enterprise Server (OES)

The new version of OES has completed a long-anticipated transition to Linux.

Novell Open Enterprise Server combines proven workgroup services from Novell with SUSE(R) Linux Enterprise Server, completing the Open Enterprise Server shift to providing workgroup services entirely on Linux*.

Xen

Xen gets a praise and it’s running under (or on top of) SUSE Linux.

Last week, Novell Inc. announced that it would allow Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) to run as a paravirtualized Xen guest on top of SUSE Enterprise Linux Server (SLES). Analysts lauded the move for the backward compatibility it provides to existing NetWare customers running or migrating to OES 2.

GWAVACon

YouTube contains heaps of new videos from GWAVACon, including this one, for example.

SMB Products

In what seems to be similar to an announcement made some months ago, Novell takes the curtains off a desktop-to-server software suite.

Novell suite provides small businesses with productivity tools and an IT foundation at a fraction of the cost of other software bundles

Others

Novell gets its honours from Touchpaper.

Best Use of Novell Solutions by the Service Desk Awarded to the service desk that best demonstrates integration with Novell technologies to further improve service desk delivery to an organisation, the winner of this category was London Borough of Hillingdon, the westernmost borough in Greater London, established in 1965 and serving a population of more than 250,000.

The winning organisation has used a combination of Touchpaper and Novell technologies (including Groupwise and ZENWorks) to drive a four-fold increase in the number of service incidents that they have been able to resolve at first point of contact alongside a 45% improvement in overall response times for all incidents recorded and an increase in excess of 700% in the numbers of work requests received and managed. Using Novell’s ZENWorks, they have dramatically reduced the number of desk visits required to deploy new applications and software updates.

Holonyx has just unleashed a product which happens to support Novell’s NetWare.

Holonyx Inc. has released RESTORE, a Linux-based enterprise network backup and recovery solution for Windows, Novell NetWare, Mac OS X, Unix and Linux systems. RESTORE is scalable to a complete backup solution for multiple workstations and servers in distributed network environments. RESTORE is also being released as an open source project. R

This is one such product, among many.

    Twitter is an out-of-control censorship machine and it should be treated accordingly even by those who merely "read" or "follow" Twitter accounts; Twitter is a filter, not a news/media platform or even means of communication

  8. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).

    When many services are reliant on the integrity of a single, very tiny MicroSD card you're only moments away from 2 days of intensive labour (recovery, investigation, migration, and further coding); we've learned our lessons and took advantage of this incident to upgrade the operating system, double the storage space, even improve the code slightly (for compatibility with newer systems)

  24. The Corporate Cabal (and Spy Agencies-Enabled Monopolies) Engages in Raiding of the Free Software Community and Hacker Culture

    In an overt attack on the people who actually did all the work — the geeks who built excellent software to be gradually privatised through the Linux Foundation (a sort of price-fixing and openwashing cartel for shared interests of proprietary software firms) — is receiving more widespread condemnation; even the OSI has been bribed to become a part-time Microsoft outsourcer as organisations are easier to corrupt than communities



  25. EPO's Web Site Constantly Spammed by Lies About Privacy While EPO Breaks the Law and Outsources Data to the United States

    The António Campinos-led EPO works for imperialism, it not only protects the rich; sadly, António’s father isn’t alive anymore and surely he would blast his son for doing what he does to progress his career while lying to staff and European citizens
