YES CERTIFIED with the following products:
Operating Systems:
  SUSE® LINUX Enterprise Server 11 for AMD64® & Intel® EM64T®     Service Pack 1 for SUSE® SLES 11


Product Description
The PRIMERGY BX924 S2 server blade is operated by two CPUs of the Intel® Xeon® X5670 processor. Chipset and CPU provide comprehensive, hardware based virtualization support, being supplemented by additional functions of the dual port 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller Intel® 82599, integrated on motherboard. Up to 18 DIMM modules in the system allow for a scalability that was never before possible, playing into the hands of consolidation demands in the datacenter. Although servers are being booted more and more via network, be it with iSCSI protocols and Ethernet, or SAN topologies and Fibre Channel, this system is enabled for local boot, too. This may optionally be realized by use of solid state drives that combine outstanding performance and high reliability. The efficient administration of the entire system via ServerView is supported by the integrated Remote Management Controller (iRMC S2); the hardware monitoring and setting options can thus be optimally visualized in order to use all options at the highest energy-efficiency levels.
