Open Country's OCM Universal Linux System Management Suite

Open Country hops on the 64-bit bandwagon with release of the OCM Universal Linux System Management Suite, Version 3.1. This systems management application now supports Intel's Itanium 2 processor line. OCM's raison d'�re is to “help companies with widely distributed Linux investments to easily discover their entire inventory of hardware/software investments, then track installations and updates, deploy security patches, simplify repetitive management tasks, and respond effectively to changing computing needs”. Open Country further credits its Web-based architecture with optimizing expertise and reducing labor costs over traditional client-server architectures. In addition, besides the mainline Linux distributions, OCM supports many distributions less common to North America, such as Asianux, CS2C, Red Flag, Turbolinux, Haansoft and several others.

The OpenVZ Project's OpenVZ

The OpenVZ Project recently announced that its OpenVZ OS-level server virtualization solution, which is built on Linux, is now available for systems using Power 64-bit processors. Like other virtualization solutions, OpenVZ allows one to create isolated, independent, secure virtual environments on a single physical server in order to achieve better server utilization and ensure that applications do not conflict. However, the OpenVZ Project asserts that its advantages lie not only in its single rather than its multiple kernels but also in its “portability across different architectures since 95% of the code is platform-independent”. The OpenVZ Project is an Open Source community project supported by the firm SWsoft, which utilizes OpenVZ as the heart of its commercial virtualization product, dubbed Virtuozzo. The OpenVZ software, complete with Power support, can be downloaded from the project's Web site.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale?

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
