"While IBM and Oracle have made big splashes with their recent Linux initiatives, CA has also been building momentum with the maverick, open-source technology. The company, which has more than 18,000 employees, has been blitzing the market with new Linux-based products with the belief that the operating system kernel can be a powerful and less costly e-business platform."

"Last month, CA announced Unicenter TNG Performance Neugents and the Unicenter TNG Cluster Management Option as new Linux-based products. Performance Neugents utilizes CA's patented technology to predict and discover potential problems on Linux servers. The Cluster Management Option manages cluster servers from such companies as Compaq, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Linux and Sun Microsystems vendors, normalizing the management and monitoring from a single location. Pincomb says unlike other vendors and solution providers, CA made the Cluster Management Option product available for Linux immediately rather than incorporating the operating system kernel after the product had gained traction with other mainstream servers and operating systems."

"In addition, CA's Unicenter TNG e-business management solution won the Best System Integration Solution at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in New York earlier this month. The flagship product enables users to manage Linux in conjunction with all other resources within an enterprise."
