Halcyon Software has announced the immediate availability of a new Linux on Power agent that runs on IBM Power Systems to ensure that the Linux operating system performs correctly. It also gives tighter control of 'mission-critical' applications running on Linux through automatic and continuous monitoring and management. Halcyon's new monitoring technology meets the requirements of organisations deploying Linux on IBM Power Systems to give greater scalability, reducing 'server sprawl' and infrastructure costs, particularly for large data centres and managed services providers (MSPs) with cloud-based offerings.
