SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension, a .NET application framework, enables organizations to run their Microsoft .NET-based server applications on Linux. Based on Mono (an open source, cross-platform .NET application framework) and run in conjunction with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, it allows IT organizations to easily port .NET-based applications from Windows to Linux without a major investment in rewriting code.
This latest version of Mono (version 2.4) includes a .NET-compatible runtime, which is compatible with the desktop and server components of version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework, as well as portions of version 3.5 of the .NET Framework, including C# 3.0 and LINQ.
Corporate and ISV developers now have access to the technology that makes running .NET applications on Linux possible, and to the full support, security and upgrades that come with a SUSE Linux Enterprise subscription.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension is sold as an add-on to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and inherits the support level of the underlying SUSE Linux Enterprise Server subscription. For example, a customer running SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension on an underlying priority-level SUSE Linux Enterprise Server subscription receives entitlement for priority-level support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension.
By purchasing a subscription to SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension, you obtain a support subscription that includes maintenance updates, security and bug fixes, free product upgrades and access to award-winning support. The price for a one-year subscription to SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension for x86 and x86_64 is $200.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension allows .NET developers to maintain and improve existing development practices and productivity levels associated with running their .NET-based server applications. It also improves the interoperability of .NET applications with Java and other legacy Linux and UNIX applications by enabling developers to combine investments in .NET and Java on Linux.
Corporate and ISV developers who run .NET on Linux receive support for mainframe-based (s390x) server consolidation in addition to x86 and x86_64.
Features include advanced 64-bit support (in Mono), 16 GB memory and 32 CPU count and faster networking and IO stacks.
With SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension, you can improve performance and manageability without costly licensing policies. Here are the features that lead to improved systems management, maintenance, scalability, and performance:
Advanced 64-bit Support (in Mono)
Higher Memory (16GB on x86 versus 4 GB on x86 for Windows Web Server Edition)
Higher CPU count (32 CPU versus 4 CPU limit for Windows Web and Standard Edition)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension helps ISV developers who utilize the .NET Framework to build applications for all of the workloads listed below to be sold into the market as products for both large- and small- to mid-size deployments.
Corporate or in-house developers leverage and customize .NET-based applications developed by ISVs in order to deploy many applications throughout larger-scale deployments, including:
Web application deployment, including line of business (LOB) and large-scale deployments
Web-based workloads including Web services and Web site design or development
Third-party and/or highly customized: Web content management, ERP, CRM and supply-chain management applications
JEE applications (exposing .NET functionality from legacy UNIX and Linux applications)
