A fully integrated Linux platform for agile, on demand retailers
The IBM Retail Environment for SUSE Linux (IRES) Version 2 helps enable on demand retailers to acquire the advantages of Linux, run it at the point of sale (POS) and on back-office servers, and receive outstanding technical support from IBM. As with Version 1, Version 2 includes a distribution of SUSE Linux from Novell, Inc., now called Novell Linux Point of Service, that is modeled after the robust SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) code base. This enterprise-class operating system is optimized to work with select IBM SurePOS systems, IBM System x™ hardware and IBM middleware. Version 2 also includes best-of-breed, cost-effective, retail-friendly support and maintenance.
