ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the simplified pricing and discounts announced by Novell throughout 2008 for SUSE� Linux Enterprise Server for International Business Machines Corporation's (IBM) System z mainframes. The aim of Novell's price reduction policy is to further help consumers experience the benefits of Linux on the mainframe. Customers, under the new pricing scheme, will be able to acquire a three-year basic subscription to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z for the cost of two years or for 33 percent discount. These discounts, available via Novell and joint Novell-IBM resellers, apply to workload consolidation from non-System z platforms and to renewals of current SUSE Linux Enterprise Server subscriptions.
