Novell’s OES now in beta testing

Novell Inc's Open Enterprise Server package, which contains both its NetWare and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server operating systems, is now in public beta testing, a few months later than expected.

By CBR Staff Writer

Waltham, Massachusetts-based Novell’s OES is designed to provide an upgrade path to take NetWare customers to Linux and future generations of NetWare. It includes the NetWare and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server operating systems as well as common communication, collaboration and application services and a common management interface.

The product was most recently lined up for general release in February 2005 although it has very much been a moving target. It was originally slated for release at the end of 2005, before Novell pushed that date forward in March 2004 to the end of last year.

It was later put back to February 2005 to coordinate the delivery of OES with the release of the first service pack for SLES 9, to ensure that customers get the latest available Linux functionality.
