A group of leading Linux suppliers are forming a community alliance known as the Linux Open Group Relationship, which aims to give increased support for enterprise Linux users.

The Technical Support Alliance Network (TSANet) announced the initiative, which has initial participation from BEA Systems, Dell, EMC, SuSE Linux, Hewlett-Packard, Unisys, Novell, Network Appliance, Veritas Software and VMware.

The Linux Open Group Relationship aims to offer collaboration on Linux standards and support issues for enterprise customers, TSANet said.

The group's formation, announced in conjunction with the LinuxWorld conference and expo in San Francisco this week, also underscores the increased popularity of Linux use within the enterprise.

TSANet is a worldwide, vendor-neutral support alliance. Founded in 1993, the group consists of more than 100 hardware and software companies.

The Linux Open Group Relationship is the fourth community formed from TSANet, following the Microsoft Datacenter, Storage Networking Industry Association and Mission Critical Customer groups.
