"Moonlight Systems, a pre-initial public offering (IPO) company launched June 26, plans to base its enterprise-grade operations on Linux's swelling server market segment and focuses its products on infrastructure applications for large deployments. These applications are expected to debut this fall."

"As you may know, Linux is very strong and growing in the server environment, particularly Web servers," said Carla McMorris, Moonlight spokesperson. "Moonlight Systems will develop applications where Linux is the strongest, at the server-level. These applications are focused on large server deployments that we see in ASP's that provide Web-based services to clients, ISP's, large sites and corporate IT departments."

"Two product families are currently under development, McMorris said. "The first is a system for centrally managing the configurations of large collections of similar servers," she explained. "It does this by generating the configurations centrally, then distributing them to the managed servers." "The second," she continued, "is a robust, secure mail transfer agent (MTA) solution that will feature an intuitive installer and an easy-to-use diagnostic interface."
