"Novell is expanding its SUSE Linux Appliance program by way of a new partnership with database vendor Ingres. The partnership is an effort to let ISVs rapidly package and deploy Linux based software appliances with the Ingres database.

"Prior to the partnership, SUSE Studio Appliance program could have enabled developers and ISVs to build their own Linux powered appliances including a database, though it might have been a more time-consuming process according to Novell.

""This is the next logical step in the appliance program to work with partners to build out an ecosystem around software appliances," Matt Richards, director of emerging technology at Novell, told InternetNews.com. "From our perspective, this expands the applicability of our appliance program from a very generic to a very specific Ingres use-case."
