Linux vendor Novell (Quote, Chart) will soon release its first multi-vendor software and hardware stack configured around SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), officials said Tuesday.

The Validated Configuration Program (VCP) is designed to certify integrated hardware and software configurations with an eye towards security, systems management, virtualization and high availability.

The application stack offering, the first under the VCP, is a collection of materials documenting the best configuration settings for SLES 9, HP's (Quote, Chart) BL20p and BL30p blade servers, Oracle's (Quote, Chart) database and real application cluster, and JBoss' Application Server 4.0 working in tandem.
