Novell has unveiled a SUSE Linux Enterprise training course contained on a portable USB drive, which it says is an industry first.
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 First Class course gives users a first look at the upcoming SUSE Linux Enterprise 10, including both the new server and desktop products.
Novell said the initiative gave customers a flexible, cost-effective option for learning about Novell's new platform.
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 First Class course comes on a USB device complete with the learning content and an installed version of the beta SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Desktop 10 on a virtual machine.
The USB device will run on both Windows and Linux, giving students complete flexibility in how, and where, to study, said Novell.
“Putting the complete initial training course on a USB drive is an industry first,” said Daniel Veitkus, vice president for training services at Novell.
“Students can simply plug this into their computer and, via a virtualised machine experience, gain quick hands-on experience on the new platform,” he said.
The USB kit, costing $199 (£115), is available from Novell at www.shopnovell.com
