HP will demonstrate its upcoming Linux system manageability software, called ProcessResource Manager (or PRM) and ServiceControl Manager (or SCM), at the conference, as well as two Web hosting products, Netstructure 1010 and 1020, which are slated to launch in March."

"PRM and SCM are coming over from HP's Unix environment and offer proven enterprise-class system management functionality," said Mike Balma, director of marketing for HP's Linux system operations. ...[and] HP will be announcing next week the availability of Critical Systems Support for Linux clients.
