SuSE Announces New Version of its Linux OS for SMBs

SuSE Announces New Version of its Linux OS for SMBs

Hot on the heels of  its 9.0 operating system for desktops, the Oakland, CA-based German company has announced that the latest SuSE Linux platform, Standard Server 8, will be available from next month, and is claiming that its graphical interface and configuration wizards will enable easy setup and deployment.

The platform, which features Web-based remote administration and provides secure access through a VPN - virtual private network - supports up to 2 CPUs and is aimed at small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

"By expanding the SUSE LINUX Server family with SUSE LINUX Standard Server,” asserts SuSE CTO Juergen Geck, “we give smaller organizations and departments a versatile solution that incorporates all the functionality they expect from a server operating system."

"Linux novices in small and mid-sized organizations," Geck continues, "will be able easily to set up the server as a Windows domain controller, file and print server in Windows environments, Internet gateway, E-Mail server, application server, DNS server, and DHCP server."
