BW: Tripp Lite’s PowerAlert, the Only Completely Open-Source UPS Software, Is Now “Red Hat Ready”

“Tripp Lite, a leading manufacturer of power protection
products, has established another milestone in its support for the
Linux development community. Tripp Lite’s PowerAlert(R) UPS
Management Software has been tested and approved by Red
Hat
(R), Inc. to install and run flawlessly using the Red Hat
Linux operating system.”

“”Receiving Red Hat Ready(TM) certification capped a thorough
testing process which proved that both Red Hat and Tripp Lite are
dedicated to providing Linux users with the most comprehensive
power protection solutions available,” said Mike DelGrosso, Tripp
Lite’s Director of Software Development. “Although other UPS
software has been tested by Red Hat, Tripp Lite is the only UPS
manufacturer that provides Red Hat’s customers with a complete UPS
software source code. This allows developers to customize not only
basic UPS shutdown functions, but the full range of intelligent UPS
control as well.””

“Sam Ockman, CEO of Penguin Computing, commented on Tripp Lite’s
value to all Linux users, including those who deploy Red Hat.
“Tripp Lite products provide two important benefits for our
customers,” said Mr. Ockman. “Tripp Lite UPS Systems provide
critical power protection for servers; and PowerAlert Software
provides a great open source intelligent UPS management solution.
We recommend Tripp Lite products to all of our customers.””
