This article reports that Rackspace Managed Hosting has selected Novell (R) ZENworks (R) Linux Management software to administer its enterprise Linux hosting solution. Because ZENworks can manage multiple platforms, Rackspace deployed the solution to gain improved management capabilities and the freedom to deploy multiple Linux platforms. As a result, employee productivity is improved and operating costs are lowered. For Rackspace Red Label, Novell centrally handles software updates, new installs and removals from any number of Linux systems. This capability is critical for Linux systems, since open source software is released on a frequent schedule. Novell ZENworks works with all of Novell's Linux offerings, from server to desktop, as well as with Red Hat Enterprise Server, meaning Rackspace can add Novell Linux solutions to their network without increasing management overhead.
