Keeping Big Linux Operations on the Same Page

Filed under
Linux

Modern data centers with large number of Linux servers and heavy use of virtualization often don't have the tools they need to handle system version control and modeling.

"Twenty years ago, most companies had tens of servers to manage," said Erik Troan, founder and chief technology officer of rPath. "When Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) took over the data center, that grew to hundreds or maybe thousands. With virtualization increasing the number of logical systems, organizations with tens of thousands of individual systems are quite common."

That increase in scale and the ease with which virtual machines can be cloned make it critical for enterprises with large-scale Linux deployments to have version control tools.
