IBM and Novell have collaborated to encourage software developers to build their applications for Novell's SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server on IBM POWER platforms. As part of the agreement, which runs through the end of March 2005, IBM and Novell are teaming to provide software vendors the opportunity to evaluate SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 for IBM's Linux on POWER line of servers at no initial charge, including 90 days of online software updates from Novell at no cost.

Software vendors can download or request an evaluation kit, then leverage porting and migration information available from IBM and Novell to port their applications to SUSE LINUX on IBM's POWER5 processor-based servers. Vendors can also profit from co-marketing with Novell and IBM by joining the Novell PartnerNet for Technology Partners program and registering their Linux-ready products with IBM and Novell.

"There is a substantial growth opportunity for Linux on POWER systems and Novell SUSE LINUX as the ecosystem of certified applications develops across the two platforms," said Brian Connors, VP, IBM Linux on POWER.

Cameron Jenkins, VP of strategic partnerships at Acucorp, added, "Together with Novell and IBM, Acucorp makes it possible for customers to retain their legacy assets while modernizing their business-critical applications and taking advantage of the cost efficiencies of Linux."
