Novell squirrels its way into the virtual datacenter

Zen for Xen

High performance access to file storage

LinuxWorld Fresh from warning against complacency over Linux's success, Novell has launched software to improve management of data centers running SUSE, its flavor of Linux.

Announcing ZenWorks Orchestrator 1.1 and ZenWorks virtual manager, chief executive Ron Hovsepian today promised "raise the bar in the management paradigm".

Features include support for Xen and VMware - and Microsoft's delayed Viridian added when it finally ships - with the ability to create and manage images, and migrate machines.

Security improvements include an updated version of AppArmor, with access control for networks, individual firewalls and a "community application profile library".

"I can build a SAP profile, download it and someone else can download it, modify it and put it back into the community library stronger," Hovsepian said. ®
