Today, Novell and VMware announced the expansion of their partnership to include a new offer of VMware vSphere bundled with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell. What does this mean to cloud service providers? Service providers, specifically IaaS (Infrastructure as a service) providers, now have the opportunity to take advantage of a fully optimized OS included as part of the industry leading virtualization platform, ensuring a more integrated and simplified solution to start developing your private cloud.

In addition, VMware has selected SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell as the standard OS for all VMware product appliances! This allows ISVs to create their applications with more agility both inside and outside cloud environments.

This announcement from VMware and Novell marks a movement towards more fully integrated solutions for IaaS providers. This partnership will deliver scalability, availability and reliability to the cloud and gives validation to the need for solutions addressing the intelligent workload management market.
