SUSE Manager: system management for Linux
Novell has announced the release of SUSE Manager, an advanced systems management solution aimed at enterprise Linux environments. In addition to support for the company's own SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), SUSE Manager works with other Linux distributions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
Discussing the announcement, Novell VP and GM of Open Platform Solutions, Markus Rex, said, "SUSE Manager is a giant step forward in the maturity of enterprise Linux," adding that, "By providing advanced integration with the operating system, single-console management of physical, virtual and cloud environments, and support for multiple Linux distributions, SUSE Manager enables Linux deployments to reach new levels of reliability, efficiency and performance."
SUSE Manager is based on the open source Spacewalk Linux system management solution and offers system provisioning and monitoring capabilities, as well as update and asset management. According to Novell, the tool works well in mixed RHEL and SLES environments and also features support for the Zypp package management stack, providing fast and efficient Linux updating.
