"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."
