Sun Microsystems has announced plans to acquire patch-management software company Aduva.
Aduva's Onstage software is used to deploy updates and patches on Solaris and Linux-based systems.
Don Grantham, executive vice-president of Sun Services, said, “By acquiring Aduva, Sun will be addressing the number one pain point we hear from IT administrators – patch management – while addressing the principle cause of service downtime and system vulnerability: out of date systems and patches.”

The small-scale deal, for an undisclosed amount, follows a series of larger acquisitions by Sun last year.
A spate of activity has seen Sun buy out StorageTek for £2.26bn and SeeBeyond Technology for £212m. It also snapped up Tarantella.
