"Caldera Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CALD), today announced the release of Caldera Volution ("Volution"), a comprehensive Linux management solution that reduces the cost of implementing and managing Linux systems. With Caldera Volution, administrators can use policies and profiles to manage thousands of Linux systems, without having to individually manage or touch each. Volution is distribution-neutral - designed to work with all major Linux distributions, and provides broad management functions."

"Volution will significantly benefit ASPs, ISPs, hosting companies, systems integrators and network administrators - anyone needing to manage multiple Linux servers and desktops."

"The lack of Linux management solutions has been a barrier impeding Linux adoption in enterprises," said Bill Claybrook, research director for Linux and UNIX of Aberdeen Group. "Caldera Volution is a significant entry into the Linux management space because of its comprehensiveness and Linux neutrality. Enterprise administrators need a Linux-neutral solution to help them manage constantly changing Open Source software."
