Novell's Linux business spikes since Microsoft deal

Filed under
SUSE

Novell's Linux business has soared 243 percent since last November when the company signed its controversial deal with Microsoft.

"The affect on sales year over year, for Novell's first three quarters of our fiscal year, which ends Oct. 31 -- our Linux business was up 243 percent year over year," said Justin Steinman, director of marketing at Novell, who, along with executives from both companies, spoke at a program hosted by the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council.

And, that growth doesn't seem to be short-lived.

"We're continuing to see above market growth year [over] year and that clearly has resulted in the 243 percent Justin alluded to," said Susan Heystee, general manager, Global Strategic Alliance, at Novell.
