Novell Links Linux Platform to Windows
Novell Inc. has announced what it is dubbing the first cross-platform systems-management suite that allows businesses to manage their Windows workstations from a Linux platform.
Novell Zenworks 7 Suite automates lifecycle management across desktops, laptops, servers and handheld devices, reducing management costs and improving security across the organization, according to the Waltham, Mass.-based organization.
"It doesn't mean we're abandoning everything we've done before," said Ross Chevalier, chief technology officer at Novell Canada.
"We're simply extending it to provide very comprehensive management both through Linux servers and Linux workstations."
