Novell has announced it is to offer Linux versions of its eDirectory and NDS Corporate Edition. They will be offered as part of the Premier Alliance Partner Scheme devised by Red Hat, the market leader in Linux solutions.

The Red Hat alliance includes hardware and software vendors as well as Red Hat itself, grouping together to bring customers enterprise class solutions in a unified way, it says. It will however, face a renewed challenge from other Linux vendors in the form of Linux United, a joint distribution network set up by Caldera, SuSe and TurboLinux. But that deal does not include a unifying agreement with ISVs and hardware vendors.

“The Red Hat Alliance programme is a milestone for Red Hat, uniting the top hardware, software and embedded technology providers in a partnership to deliver the best Linux solutions to their customers,’ said Mark de Visser, Red Hat’s vice president of marketing.

In the Middle East the latest versions of Red Hat Linux will be offered via Novell’s channel as well as Linux versions of Novell’s products. “We are always looking forward to new products and developments we can feed through our channel partners to our valuable customers here in the region,” commented Rod Barclay, channel manager, Novell Middle East.
