Levanta puts Linux management in a box

Another entry into the "next gen data center management" appliances, this time one that targets the small and medium sized company with a gaggle of linux boxes.  It would seem most appropriate that this kind of appliance be capable of managing operating system environments beyond linux.

Link: Levanta puts Linux management in a box.

Levanta's Intrepid M appliance is loaded with the company's software that helps customers manage multiple servers from a single location.

The appliance is designed for small to midsize companies or to manage specific network segments.

Once plugged into the network systems, administrators can use Intrepid M templates to provision new servers, move operating systems off one box onto another and manage multiple Linux machines. When Intrepid M provisions a new machine, it also installs a Linux kernel on the server so that it can perform ongoing management and track changes made to the system.

Levanta competes with Altiris, BladeLogic, Novadigm (now part of HP) and Opsware with its server provisioning and management
