SuSE, IBM deepen Linux partnership

NEW YORK--German Linux seller SuSE has deepened its partnership with IBM, the companies announced Tuesday at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo here. The two companies will work to optimize SuSE's higher-end Enterprise Server product for IBM's four server lines. In addition, the companies said Thursday that the Enterprise Server product is available for IBM's iSeries special-purpose servers for mid-sized companies and for its pSeries Unix servers. SuSE has had a two-year partnership with IBM; all three of the companies using Linux on the mainframe that IBM trotted out to business partners at the show were using SuSE's version of Linux.
