"To date, Novell has had strong usage of its online SUSE Studio Linux appliance development service, with over 250,000 software appliances built. Even with that success, Novell (NASDAQ: NOVL) sees a need to expand the effort with a new SUSE Appliance Toolkit providing an on-premises version of SUSE Studio, as well as a new Lifecycle Management Server to manage appliance updates.

"With SUSE Studio, users are able to build their own software appliance with an application running on top of a SUSE Linux operating system. The market of Linux-based software appliance was originally pioneered by rival rPath.The new on-premises version of SUSE Studio brings that same capability to enterprises and software vendors (ISVs) to run behind their own firewalls.

""SUSE Studio online is perfectly stable, but going on-premise is really more of a security concern, as the No. 1 reason why some people don't adopt the cloud is security," Matt Richards, director of emerging technology at Novell, told InternetNews.com."
