Transition to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server now easy for users of RHEL and CentOS

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

For awhile now, I’ve thought that Novell should offer a way for people to migrate to their enterprise products. Well, according to their press release, “Novell Announces New Program to Aid Transition to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server,” apparently, they’ve caught the vision. It’s nice to see that they’re actually maneuvering and strategizing. For a long time, it seemed like they were just kind of slowly dying off. But with their actions of recent years, such as buying SuSE, their partnership with Microsoft (not that I approve of this, of course), and now their latest move, it seems that they’re serious about business. From the press release:

“The new program is in response to growing customer demand for help as they make the strategic decision to transition their data center Linux infrastructure from existing third-party distributions, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS, to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Many times, customers who want to move between platforms are constrained by factors such as IT resource limitations, application migration scheduling and training costs, which means they need time to make an orderly transition. In response to these challenges, Novell is providing technical support for a customer’s existing Linux environment and is also delivering training and tools to ensure the transition to the SUSE Linux Enterprise platform is smooth and successful.”

That seems like a strong move on their part, and shows their dedication to helping potential customers.
