Novell will add native support for Linux to its Novell Directory Services (NDS) by the end of the year in its latest attempt to ride the Linux bandwagon.
The move follows the networking giant's investment in Linux distributor, Red Hat, in March.
Separately, Novell also acquired Netoria, which sells products intended to make it easier to use network directories. Its offerings will be integrated into Novell's software over the next few months and company will form part of Novell's new products initiatives group.
