SUSE

Reuters and Novell today announced an alliance in support of Reuters Market Data System on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell for financial institutions worldwide.

In addition, Reuters has joined Novell's PartnerNet(R) program and has certified RMDS on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server to help ensure the future success of joint financial services customers.
