HP release simplifies Linux blade-server management

Tash Shifrin

Hewlett-Packard has launched a software package designed to simplify the management of Linux on blade servers.

The HP Control Tower software is based on technology gained through the acquisition of Linux management software company RLX in October last year. Its launch comes as businesses interest in Linux increases.

The software package offers deployment and monitoring capabilities for HP BladeSystem environments and features a scalable interface.

Control Tower can also work in conjunction with HP’s Systems Insight Manager, which is shipped with all HP server and storage systems, to provide simplified lifecycle management of blade servers running Linux, through familiar open source tools.

The package has been designed to be set up quickly, and to deliver hardware monitoring and deployment functions in a single console.

HP Control Tower is expected to be available in May.
