The customer relationship management (CRM) supplier signed a deal with Novell to run Siebel business applications on Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9.
Siebel customers will be able to run mission-critical Siebel applications on a lower-cost open source platform, and receive enterprise-class support from both Novell and Siebel, said the firms.
“Siebel's selection of Novell is more proof that Suse Linux is ready for prime time,” said David Patrick, Novell's vice-president and general manager, Linux, Open Source Platforms and Services.
In July, Fujitsu said it would sell Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server on both its high-end Primequest and Primergy server lines, which marked another significant milestone for the Linux operating system.
