Novell extends lifecycle management for Linux
Novell this month took the wraps off its Linux management system, with an emphasis on lifecycle-management capabilities. Intended to lower the overall costs of an IT operation, ZENworks 7 Linux Management taps policy-based automation to deploy and centrally manage Linux-based resources. Version 7.0 works with Suse Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux and features new imaging, configuration lockdown, remote management, inventory, and software-management capabilities. Novell has integrated the product’s management features in with its Linux Desktop and Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 products. Another new capability allows IT workers to use Web-based administration through the product’s Control Center, a task-oriented management console for deploying, managing, and maintaining Linux systems.
