Novell Inc. Monday launched a program that they hope will get 10 million users of an older network operating system to upgrade to the current NetWare 6.
Called the NetWare 3 to NetWare 6 Upgrade Promotion, the company will upgrade current NetWare 3 users to NetWare 6 at a huge discount and provide upgrade protection at no additional cost.
Novell says that there are 300,000 servers running NetWare 3 worldwide.
To receive the upgrade, companies need to buy as many user licenses as they have concurrent connections and be members of Novell's Volume License Agreement or Corporate License Agreement programs. If they are not members they can participate through the VLA.
The program is available now and continues through October 31, 2002.
