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administrators - patch management - while addressing the principal cause of service downtime and system vulnerability - out-of-date systems and patches."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 storage specialist StorageTek in a £2.26bn deal and acquire systems integrator SeeBeyond Technology in a £212m acquisition. Sun also snapped up thin client software supplier Tarantella.
