"VA Linux Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: LNUX), the world's Linux leader, today announced the availability of VACM 2.0, the latest official release of VA Cluster Manager software. VACM is a powerful, flexible Open Source software tool that is designed to enable easy remote monitoring and management of large clusters of hundreds of servers, whether they are all located under one roof or distributed across ISP data centers around the world."

"Support and implementation of VACM 2.0 is available through VA Linux Professional Services' Internet Architecture and Custom Engineering Practices. VACM (pronounced "vacuum") can also be downloaded from SourceForge at vacm.sourceforge.net."

"The deployment of large clusters of Linux servers by ASPs, ISPs and other service providers is expected to grow rapidly over the next two to three years, and the problem of managing these servers will continue to grow," said Bill Claybrook, research director for Linux and Open Source software, Aberdeen Group. "User-friendly, Linux distribution-independent cluster management tools, such as VACM software, will play a critical role in solving these problems."
