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

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.
