HP is acquiring Linux management software company RLX Technologies to add its technology to its own products.
The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, would enable HP to improve its Linux-based management technology in blade server environments, the company said.
HP said the buy fitted into its overall strategy of providing a unified infrastructure management offering across Linux, Unix and Windows operating environments.
The RLX technology will be incorporated into HP’s existing range of server, storage and enterprise management software.
HP recently acquired AppIQ and Peregrine Systems to improve its enterprise management capabilities.
