Appliance Pavilion: IBM

SUSE and IBM are bringing you the fastest and easiest way to build, test, manage and get to market with software and virtual appliances.

IBM is delivering a portfolio of software appliances across IBM brands, all powered by SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Leveraging SUSE, this broad-based initiative enables IBM to deliver "plug and play" appliances that substantially lower the cost and complexity of deploying applications for small and medium businesses (SMBs) and help independent software vendors (ISVs) significantly expand their routes to market.


IBM delivers Linux-Based software appliances

The combination of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and IBM software represents a significant step forward in providing affordable, reliable, easy-to-use software appliances. IBM has created appliances based on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server in the following areas:
