BW: VA Linux Releases Software for Managing Software On Large-Scale Linux Installations

May 02, 2000, 14:10 (0 Talkback[s])

"VA Linux Systems, Inc., a recognized leader in Linux and Open Source solutions for Internet infrastructure, today announced the release of VA SystemImager(TM) 1.0 software for automatically installing, configuring and updating large numbers of Linux systems in Internet server farms and clusters."

"VA Linux customers that currently use VA SystemImager software on large installations of VA Linux servers include NetLedger, the world's first provider of a Web-based accounting solution for millions of small businesses; Bristol-Myers Squibb, one of the leading diversified health and personal care companies worldwide; and ValueWeb, one of the world's largest providers of shared and dedicated Web hosting solutions."

"VA SystemImager 1.0 is ideal for software and content management of Internet sites, which change frequently. Once VA SystemImager is installed, systems can be incrementally updated with a single command, as new security patches, software and configuration files are applied to the 'master image.' Content on Internet server farms can be easily distributed and kept in sync using this method. Unlike other Linux installation and replication software, VA SystemImager does not require a specific package format, giving users flexibility when using software downloaded from the Internet or written in-house."
