Novell Preps Users for Move to Linux

Filed under
SUSE

Novell used its BrainShare conference last week to elaborate on its product migration path to Linux, and included an assurance to customers that it will support NetWare well into the next decade. The annual event featured a series of product announcements, including a preview of a new edition of Open Enterprise Server (OES), expected to ship in June 2007. Another new offering is Version 10 of the SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.

The new edition of OES, code-named Cypress, will run NetWare on Linux only as a guest operating system under the open source XEN or VMware's ESX Server virtualization platforms. Existing OES implementations let IT run a NetWare or Linux kernel.

Many NetWare customers say they will migrate to the Linux-based OES when a NetWare kernel is no longer available. One issue preventing them from doing so now is that Novell's Network Storage Services (NSS) and its file permissions and access rights are not fully supported in Linux.

Programming/Development: Django and Google India

  • An introduction to the Django ORM
    One of the most powerful features of Django is its Object-Relational Mapper (ORM), which enables you to interact with your database, like you would with SQL. In fact, Django's ORM is just a pythonical way to create SQL to query and manipulate your database and get results in a pythonic fashion. Well, I say just a way, but it's actually really clever engineering that takes advantage of some of the more complex parts of Python to make developers' lives easier.
