“With this agreement, we are elevating our day-to-day working relationship, which will shape and accelerate the adoption of Linux for enterprise-class data warehouses,” said Scott Gnau, chief development officer of Teradata. “Our customers are demanding the best from our Linux systems, and we are delivering high performance systems that are very stable, manageable and scalable. In addition to improving our customers’ experience in the near term, this close relationship means we will be able to provide the Linux community with the benefit of our experience in high performance enterprise systems.”
As part of the agreement, Novell will provide a Linux services engineering team to enhance the performance of the Teradata Purpose-Built platform family, which runs on SUSE Linux Enterprise. Novell will also ensure a smooth integration of applications running on its operating system.
