Novell to migrate all its Sun customers

The Novell division at Workgroup has announced that Novell has revealed a broad range of product license agreements and special offers designed to help Sun Microsystems identity management and Solaris customers upgrade to equivalent Novell solutions.

Novell is also offering incentive programs for Sun partners to join the Novell PartnerNet channel community, says Sally Berimbau, business unit manager: Novell at Workgroup.

“As a result, Sun customers and partners now have a financially compelling reason to migrate their identity management and operating system platforms to Novell,” she adds. “The new Novell programs and offers address concerns raised by recent news that Sun’s product catalogue, now owned by Oracle, will be substantially scaled back.”

“Additionally, Sun’s largest customers will now be routed through a direct support model, leaving Sun partners and resellers in a bind.”

With these new offers, Sun customers with a perpetual license can now swap their products with a Novell equivalent for free. This means Sun customers can get Novell’s highly interoperable identity and security solution for only the cost of maintenance.

The following license swaps are available:

  1. Sun Identity Manager customers receive Novell Identity manager, Novell Roles Based Provisioning Module and Novell Enterprise Integration Module.
  2. Sun Role Manager customers receive Novell Access Governance Suite.
  3. Sun Open SSO customers receive Novell Access Manager.
  4. Sun Directory Server EE customers receive Novell eDirectory.
