Novell's SUSE teams with Acronis

Acronis, Inc., a specialist in storage management software, announced it is a Silver Technology Partner with Novell and is committed to the development and delivery of technology solutions, services and offerings that support SUSE Linux Enterprise from Novell.

Acronis will create new storage management solutions for SUSE's Linux Enterprise customers and provide advanced disaster recovery, backup and restore, partitioning and data migration solutions including centrally managed online server backup, server disk imaging, and bare-metal restore solutions for SUSE.

"Novell is pleased to welcome Acronis as a Silver Technology Partner," said Justin Steinman, director of marketing for Linux and Open Platform Solutions at Novell. "Acronis offerings will provide additional choice and benefits to our SUSE Linux Enterprise customers."

Acronis' SUSE solutions are focused on data center infrastructure for customers running SUSE Novell products including SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 and openSUSE.

"Teaming with Novell is a tremendous step forward for Acronis," said Zorian Rotenberg, Director of Business Development at Acronis. "Delivering our technology in support of Novell's Linux offerings will extend Acronis' reach into new markets and ensure customers that their data is protected and their systems can be restored in minutes, not hours or days, should their disk drives or data become unusable."
