"Linux system management software received a boost on Tuesday, with Caldera Systems debuting what company officials believe is the first such package for that market capable of managing thousands of distributed systems."

"Intended for ISPs, ASPs (application service providers), and larger corporate accounts, Volution is a directory-centered program that allows administrators to conduct asset management, hardware and software inventorying, health monitoring of Linux-based systems, and software distribution."

"There are a lot of [Linux-based] products out there that just do network management or performance monitoring. But the users we talk to say they want something more like [Volution] that lets them control their networks, do a wider range of things on their schedule, and to own all the components of that network," said John Wilkinson, Volution's product line manager."
