Sun and SuSE Linux Enter into Global Alliance

(August 1, 2003) - Sun Microsystems, Inc. and SuSE Linux have announced a global alliance to expand the reach of Java technology and SuSE Linux in the rapidly growing market for open systems. Under the terms of the agreement, SuSE commits to become a J2SE source licensee and to distribute Sun's JVM. Sun will sell, ship, and provide full customer support for SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 on Sun's x86 systems.

"This agreement further demonstrates the accelerating momentum of Java and Sun's support for the open community," said Jonathan Schwartz, executive vice president, software, Sun Microsystems.

The joint offering from SuSE and Sun provides customers with fully supported Java and Linux solutions. In collaboration with SuSE, Sun will provide global services and support for SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 on Sun's x86 systems and will support SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 on select third-party SuSE certified hardware. Sun will also support customers in heterogeneous environments including Solaris OS and Trusted Solaris, the Solaris x86 Platform Edition, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8, as well as other Sun supported Linux offerings. Sun will continue to support all existing Sun Linux customers to ensure their business continuity and investment protection.
