Special Sneak Preview from ON Technology at Enterprise Linux Forum in Boston December 3-4, 2002

WHAT: In January 2003, ON Technology will introduce and launch ON Command CCM® for Linux - the industry's first and only solution for end-to-end management of Linux systems. ON Technology, a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure management solutions, will be at the Enterprise Linux Forum in Boston to discuss and demonstrate ON Command CCM for Linux. The new product will offer several key features to enterprises:

  • Full lifecycle management - from hardware provisioning to OS deployment to applications and content to updates and patches to disaster recovery
  • A single console for managing a heterogeneous environment of Windows, Linux and other non-Windows-based desktops, mobile devices and servers
  • A platform and process to speed and ease the migration to Linux

Enterprise Linux Forum attendees will have an exclusive opportunity to see how this new breakthrough product helps companies implement and manage Linux and Linux-hybrid environments.

WHY: The attractive price point for Linux systems and increasing support from industry leaders such as IBM and Dell has enabled Linux to become a serious choice when choosing platforms. Linux has deeply penetrated the financial, telecommunications, government and retail industries and made in-roads in many other industries. Gartner estimates that 80 percent of its clients have Linux deployed somewhere in the enterprise. As enterprises make this transition, they need a management solution that will help them through the transition and provide the capability to manage the resulting environment.

WHERE: The Marriott Copley Place, located next to the Enterprise Linux Forum at 110 Huntington Avenue, Boston

WHO: ON Technology empowers IT organizations and service providers to manage the full lifecycle of their computing systems over large-scale corporate networks. ON's flagship product, ON Command CCM, has been sold to manage in excess of 1,000,000 computing devices worldwide in over 775 global corporations.

WHEN: Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 3-4, 2002
RSVP with Gerald Kimber White for interviews and demonstrations.
