Levanta Offers VM Management App for Linux

Levanta is offering a virtual machine version of its Linux life-cycle management product that's similar to the company's flagship physical appliance. The product, called Intrepid VM Linux Management Appliance, is available as a free software download.

The company's Intrepid product is designed to help administrators of Linux-based systems automate provisioning and manage change. It also helps with patch management, system rollback, disaster recovery and server migration.

Levanta teamed with VMware to create the virtual machine version of its Intrepid appliance. The virtual machine version makes it easier for Linux system administrators to test drive the product.

"By partnering with VMware and turning our physical appliance into a virtual appliance, Levanta is joining the ranks of other open source virtual appliance leaders like JBoss and SugarCRM in offering freely downloadable, easily deployable software," stated Simon Bennett, Levanta's Intrepid product line manager, in a press release.

Intrepid VM is a full featured version of the Intrepid M software. However, the Intrepid VM product has some limitations due to virtualization, according to Levanta's user forum.

Limitations of the Intrepid VM product include lower performance under VMware, barebones software package selection and a ceiling of 24 Gigabytes of user data. In addition, Intrepid VM handles only three running servers and its health monitoring system doesn't function.

The free Intrepid VM Linux Management Appliance software can be downloaded from either Levanta's Web site or VMware's site.
