Microsoft Corp. and Novell Inc. are announcing an incremental investment in their relationship focused on converting unsupported Linux* users to supported SUSE® Linux Enterprise, with a particular emphasis on the Chinese market. This is a result of increasing customer demand in the region for their business model solution, which builds a bridge between open source and proprietary software and provides interoperability and intellectual property (IP) peace of mind for organizations operating mixed-source IT environments.

This increased demand is exemplified by the People’s Insurance Company of China Group (PICC), The Dairy Farm Company Ltd. (Dairy Farm) and Dawning Information Industry Co. Ltd. (Dawning), which have agreed to receive Microsoft certificates for three-year support subscriptions for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell®.
