"Today, SuSE Linux, the international technology leader and solutions provider in open source, announced that SuSE Linux Database Server combines the operating system platform of SuSE Linux Enterprise Server with IBM's DB2 Database to form a complete solution for professional users. In mid September, SuSE Linux will present an updated version of the solution package.

The SuSE Linux Database Server joins the stability and security of SuSE Linux Enterprise Server with the performance and reliability of DB2. Similar to SuSE Linux, DB2 also supports the widest variety of hardware architectures. This combination is ideal for the implementation of very large databases on various hardware architectures, as well as for data exchange between a variety of platforms.

"We're very excited that SuSE has selected DB2 as the database of choice for its customers," said Jim Kelly, vice president of marketing, IBM Data Management Solutions. "DB2 is an increasingly popular choice for business-critical applications, as it provides the greatest scalability of any database running on Linux today. With SuSE, this is another opportunity for customers to continue to benefit from IBM's expertise with Linux."
