Sun Microsystems is acquiring Linux and Solaris patch management software company Aduva to improve its update offering to customers.

Aduva’s technology allows businesses to automate patch management for Solaris and Linux servers.

Aduva’s products are used by both by small businesses with only a handful of servers and by large datacentres with many hundreds of servers.

Aduva's Onstage product does more than simply co-ordinate and automate patch updates. The Aduva platform also uses a knowledge base which consists of software dependency rules to ensure the most appropriate updates are installed on each server at the right time.

These dependency rules come from Aduva's Automated Certification Lab, which generates real-world rules for thousands of authenticated Linux and Solaris components.

This facility gives system administrators a tool that enables them to deploy the right mix of updates for their particular production environment.
