IBM is joining with AMD and Novell to create a database for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The all-in-one offering, unveiled last week, includes IBM's Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) database, codenamed ‘Cheetah', and Novell's SuSe Linux Enterprise Server software, combined with IBM xSeries 3105 servers and AMD Opteron 1000 Series processors.

"The combination of IDS Cheetah and the xSeries 3105 powered by AMD Opteron processors with Direct Connect Architecture will provide customers with a cost-effective, high-availability solution to meet their critical data management requirements," said Terri Hall, vice president of commercial solutions and alliances at AMD.

Cheetah is scheduled for release this year and IBM announced the database had entered open beta testing for customers and business partners. IBM said it featured significant enhancements to application development.
