Storage software company Veritas and open source vendor SuSE are working together to encourage the use of Linux in enterprise data centres.
The companies have signed an engineering and marketing partnership for the development, certification, support and sale of Veritas software on the SuSE Linux enterprise server platform.
Veritas is conducting a beta programme for its SuSE products with customers in finance, banking, healthcare and government, and said it plans to offer its core file system, volume manager and cluster server software products on SuSE Linux Enterprise Server in the first quarter of 2004.
Mark Bregman, Veritas executive vice president of product operations, said: "Customers have made clear that they desire full, enterprise-class storage management solutions on Linux to help them face the pressures of lowering costs and meeting higher service levels."
And SuSE's chief alliance officer, Uwe Heine, said: "We believe that this collaboration will vastly accelerate open source adoption in the data centre."
