systems from Novell.

The Federal State of North Rhine Westphalia has selected Novell to support the critical IT infrastructure systems at the universities in its region.

The system includes the Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop platform. The move is designed to give the colleges a cheaper sytem whilst also giving them a more flexible IT architecture when compared to other proprietary software.

The college software also includes the use of Suse Linux Enterprise Server, Novell Open Enterprise Server, Novell Identity Manager and Novell Zenworks.

Novell already has similar state-wide agreements with universities in the Federal States of Thuringia and Bavaria.
