"On-the Road Linux System Monitoring and Management Using Palm Handheld"

"Mission Critical Linux, the cutting-edge Linux services company, announced today the addition of a new technology -- exploiting the wireless Palm VII handheld computer from Palm, Inc. -- that mobile IT managers can deploy as they look to keep their increasingly complex, distributed IT infrastructures performing optimally. This powerful combination of Mission Critical Linux's Secure Service Technology (SST) -- which securely harnesses the power and reach of the Internet to enable real-time management of business critical Linux environments -- with the "go anywhere" Palm VII handheld, allows mobile IT managers to securely monitor their Linux systems anytime, anywhere."

"SST's groundbreaking technology lets Mission Critical Linux and customers remotely monitor Linux systems -- including Web servers, Oracle databases and Intranet servers -- without compromising the integrity of those systems' security. Employing 128-bit encryption, secure socket layer (SSL) technology, digital certificates from VeriSign and password protection, SST allows secure monitoring and management of critical, core systems to maintain optimal system performance. In addition, SST's interactive technology allows Mission Critical Linux engineers to not only accurately assess system status, but also to quickly and expertly apply fixes to these systems if a problem arises."

"SST's revolutionary Internet technology for secure remote monitoring lets us guarantee our customers improved Linux system performance and reliability. Using the interface to SST loaded onto the Palm VII handheld, mobile customers can now have enhanced access to status information for nodes being monitored by our SST technology," states Moiz Kohari, President and CEO of Mission Critical Linux. "The added accessibility to those business critical Linux systems using the Palm VII handheld expands the arsenal of tools and technologies that today's IT manager requires to keep systems performing reliably and trouble-free."
