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administrators – patch management – while addressing the principle cause of service downtime and system vulnerability: out of date systems and patches.”
