Solve your workload problems once and for all with future-proof Virtualization and Workload Management solutions.

Our Virtualization Capabilities

Server and Data Center Consolidation

Ready to do more with less? Consolidate your data center, and enjoy a whole new level of efficiency and IT staff productivity. Virtualization and Workload Management from Novell helps you migrate and consolidate business-critical Windows, Linux and UNIX workloads between and within physical data centers, as well as between physical and virtual infrastructures.

Disaster Recovery

Are you protecting all of your business-critical servers? Or does your budget only cover a handful of critical applications? Many organizations are dangerously under-protected because of the costs associated with disaster recovery and business continuity. We can help. Our virtualization-based disaster recovery solution dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of protecting every workload in your data center.

Assessments & Virtual Capacity Management

Need to get a handle on your infrastructure? We can enable assessments of both physical and virtual data center infrastructure—from servers to storage and other network hardware. This will give you a holistic view of exactly what you have. And our virtual capacity management product will help you understand, visualize and report on your current infrastructure capacity, and forecast future capacity needs.

Virtualization Host Platform

Looking for a great host platform for your virtualization strategy? You can use SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server as a virtualization platform using either Xen or KVM. What's more, you'll get optimized cross-platform virtualization at an amazingly low cost.
