Systems Management Platform Goes Open-Source
The open-source community will see yet another offering in the systems management arena when Qlusters Inc. introduces its OpenQRM project.
The Palo Alto, Calif. company opted to take its server management automation platform to the open-source community to fill a void that executives saw in the market for an open-source server automation tool.
"There is no open-source systems management play right now. Pre-launch activity shows people are looking for this. We've already had 350 downloads," said William Hurley, CTO in Palo Alto.
Qlusters' plan is to distribute the OpenQRM software through SourceForge.net, using a modified Mozilla Public License.
