Start-up management vendor Aduva Inc. Wednesday launched a systems management package for Linux networks that aims to reduce the time administrators spend correcting problems and installing software.
Aduva Director automates systems management of Linux networks without regard to their size. It allows the system administrator to apply patches, upgrades, new drivers and software to systems.
Installed on a server, the software polls each workstation client for its identity. It then gathers inventory information that is important to the software distribution process, such as amount of RAM and software versions, and makes this information available to the systems administrator.
Aduva Director can simultaneously apply changes to workstations across the network, based on a series of schedules the administrator creates.
