Let's say you own a small to midsize business, and you want to use Linux, but you're not crazy about the idea of mixing and matching software and servers.

This new package combines the SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) 10 with a mixture of open and proprietary IBM software that runs on top of either IBM System x (previously xServers) or BladeCenter servers.
