Success Story: Idaho Power Company
Idaho Power Company moved to SUSE(r) Linux Enterprise Server on an IBM*
mainframe to improve performance and take advantage of virtualization.
Consolidating servers has dramatically reduced hardware, software and
administration costs.
Idaho Power Company, a subsidiary of IDACORP, Inc., is involved in the
generation, purchase, transmission, distribution and sale of electric energy
in a 24,000 square mile area in southern Idaho and eastern Oregon. Among the
lowest cost per kilowatt of all national providers, the company serves a
growing population of approximately 883,000 people. For an energy provider,
keeping systems available at all times is critical, particularly when
responding to power outages. Idaho Power Company was concerned about the
reliability of its legacy servers and began exploring the advantages of
moving to a mainframe environment for greater operational efficiency.
With an objective of proficient fiscal management, Idaho Power has continued
to seek improvements to its IT infrastructure. In an ongoing effort to
optimize its infrastructure and contain costs, the company saw the potential
hardware and software savings by using virtualization in a Linux* mainframe

Linux more accessible by Bill Bennett
Novell hopes its SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (SLED) will tempt everyday
computer owners to abandon Windows and switch to a newer, cheaper and
supposedly better alternative.
The operating system goes a long way to achieving this goal. For some people
it may go all the way. For others it falls short, but probably not by much.
If you work for a larger company where professional support people are on
hand, switching might be relatively painless.
Moving to any version of Linux is likely to be harder in small businesses
and homes where there's no resident expert. Once installed, SLED is
impressive. It has a clean, eye-catching look complete with visual effects,
animations and transparencies. You can set up multiple desktops and then
switch between them with a rotating 3D cube - it's fair to say this is a
flashy and cool feature rather than a serious productivity aid.

Novell First to Integrate All Aspects of Access Management with the Release
of Novell Access Manager 3
Single solution provides organizations seamless, secure access across
extended enterprise of customers, partners and employees
Novell announced the worldwide availability of Novell(R) Access Manager 3,
its next-generation access management solution. Novell Access Manager 3 is a
single access management solution that protects both Web and enterprise
applications and helps organizations enhance user productivity, streamline
administration, increase security, and ensure compliance. "Organizations can
improve security, simplify the user experience, and relieve administrative
burden with Web access management (WAM) systems," noted Mark Diodati,
identity and privacy analyst with the Burton Group. "WAM systems are all
but essential for organizations with high value, heterogeneous Web
applications and Web single sign-on needs." Novell Access Manager 3
provides a single solution for enterprise security and access control that
combines Web single sign-on and seamless remote access. This release now
fully integrates standards-based identity federation, enabling customers to
securely share identity information across organizational and technical
boundaries. Moreover, Novell Access Manager 3 features an innovative
approach to simplify federation deployments by dynamically translating
between identity federation standards, including Liberty Alliance and
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). Novell Access Manager 3 also
features an integrated, clientless Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private
Network (SSLVPN) to enable seamless access control and role-based
authorization to back-end applications. It also incorporates enhancements
for multi-factor authentication, data encryption, fine-grained access,
role-based access control and scalable enforcement of enterprise-wide access
polices. More information on Novell's solutions for security and identity
can be found at http://www.novell.com/solutions/securityandidentity.
