Another part of today's announcement is that Sun will release the source code used to build xVM Ops Center to its OpenxVM.org community starting December 10. Developers will "be able to play around with the agent infrastructure and modify it," Oren Teich, director of marketing for xVM," told InternetNews.com.
Sun xVM Ops Center is designed to reduce datacenter management complexity by combining a range of lifecycle management functionality into an all-in-one tool. The idea, Sun said, is to simplify discovery, monitoring, operating system provisioning, comprehensive updates and patch management, firmware updates, and hardware management from power up to production in cross-platform Linux and Solaris Operating System-based x86 and Sparc environments.
