Novell's Next Linux Server, Desktop In The Pipeline
Novell gave attendees of BrainShare a sneak peek at the next major upgrade of Suse Linux Enterprise Server, dubbed Code 10.
SLES 10, which is expected to move into beta testing in August and ship in early 2006, will incorporate commercially supported Xen virtualization, consolidated software management, a Common Information Model (CIM) systems management API and flexible add-on capabilities to allow ISVs and service partners to hook in products and services, Novell product managers said during a BrainShare briefing on Tuesday.
The inclusion of Xen open-source virtualization will allow customers to run SLES versions 8 and 9 and Novell Linux Desktop 9 and 10 in virtual images on the same server, and Novell plans to offer a virtualization support on the Novell Linux Software Development Kit, executives said.
Another major goal of the release is to integrate the Suse YAST Online Update code with Novell's ZenWork Linux Management platform into a single software update solution. YAST is Suse's management utilities.
It will also offer an integrated management console based on YAST.
