LinuxWorldExpo, New York: Today, SuSE Linux and IBM announced the extension of their partnership to offer the most advanced Linux solutions for enterprise-level computing. IBM and SuSE Linux are offering unique performance and scalability through the complete IBM eServer product line, combined with the outstanding capabilities of SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) operating system. This marks a major milestone in an existing two-year joint technology and business agreement between IBM and SuSE.

The expanded partnership builds on previously announced IBM eServer iSeries, pSeries, xSeries, and zSeries offerings, and continues IBM's and SuSE's work at the forefront of delivering Linux enterprise solutions. As a consequence of this agreement, SuSE Linux and IBM will closely cooperate to tune SuSE's SLES operating system exactly to the technical requirements of IBM's eServer line.

"Corporate customers today are demanding complete solutions, not piece parts," said Steve Solazzo, vice president, Linux at IBM.
