Novell, Tencent build joint cloud computing laboratory in China

To develop internet data centre cloud computing platform

By CBR Staff Writer

Novell, a provider of intelligent workload management, and Tencent, China’s Internet service portal, have establishment a research laboratory in Shenzhen, China to jointly develop an Internet Data Center (IDC) cloud computing platform.

Tencent is adopting SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and PlateSpin Orchestrate as its auto-deployment system. As part of the agreement, Tencent will also utilise intelligent workload management offerings from Novell, including PlateSpin Workload Management, to create an IDC cloud platform that will allow users to build, purchase and run business applications in a faster and more convenient way.

Sen Ming Chang, managing director of Novell East Asia, said: "This cloud computing laboratory will create a powerful IDC cloud platform that will not only promote IDC industry development but also help companies improve productivity and reduce costs.

"Our collaboration with Tencent further proves Novell’s leadership in cloud computing and the intelligent workload management market. We spare no effort to provide customers with excellent solutions and services, and hope more companies like Tencent will adopt our virtual solutions."
