YES CERTIFIED with the following products:
Operating Systems:
  SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server 11 for AMD64 & Intel64     Service Pack 1 for SUSE® SLES 11

Product Description
The dual-socket PowerEdge 2950 delivers performance combined with a balance of internal expandability and rack density. Perfect for network infrastructure applications such as web, messaging, database and file/print consolidation, the PowerEdge 2950 delivers both the performance customers need with the drive capacity demanded for growing applications. The PowerEdge 2950 also provides up to 8 internal hard drive bays in its 2U chassis, allowing large amounts of internal storage for applications that require capacity but not enough to merit an external storage system. It's the perfect balance available in a rack-dense 2U form factor.
