SuSE Linux Enterprise Server Validated for Running IBM DB2

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

SuSE's Spearheading Technology is the First Distribution to be Validated on all Hardware Platforms supported by DB2 for Linux

SuSE Linux's SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) earlier this week became the first distribution to be validated on all hardware platforms supported by DB2 for Linux (including IBM zSeries mainframes) and validated to run DB2 Enterprise Server Edition.

SuSE attributes its success story of enterprise products builds on the validated distributions, including SLES 7 and SLES 8 on Intel 32 and 64 bit, and SLES 7 on zSeries (and SLES v8 on zSeries, when available). SuSE Linux assures enterprise customers running database workloads in a tested Linux environment.

"IBM's DB2 database software is a leader in database scalability, reliability, multimedia extensibility, and Web enablement needed for the most demanding e-business applications," said Boris Nalbach, CTO SuSE Linux AG. "This latest validation is proof of the successful cooperation between IBM and SuSE and our determination to deliver Linux-based Enterprise Solutions for the data center."

"IBM is committed to support the efforts of SuSE and UnitedLinux partners to enhance the scalability and reliability of Linux for the enterprise," said Lauren Flaherty, vice president of marketing, IBM Data Management Solutions. "The combination of DB2 and SuSE Linux enables enterprise customers to easily deploy both products right out of the box, delivering a powerful solution that generates a quick return on investment and lowers the total of cost of computing."

To harden the Linux kernel, IBM and SuSE collaborated and executed on hundreds of tests within IBM's DB2 for Linux Validation Program. IBM's validation program highlights the company's commitment to the Linux community and provides a comprehensive test environment to deliver real-world value with Linux technology.

DB2 v8 offers 438 new features, including new self-managing capabilities, breakthrough performance and business intelligence features, and high availability functionality.
