Managing server platforms in data centers can be complex with the myriad hardware vendors and the variety of management consoles that manage them. Anything that reduces complexity would be welcome. Specifications/standards help, but there might still be a need for software specific to each server vendor running on the OS to ensure tighter integration with their respective systems management hardware. This adds to the complexity in the number of software components that need to be deployed/managed across multiple server vendors. Open source alternatives exist.
In this presentation, Charles Rose will review features in open source components that he has been involved with that enhance the OS - systems management hardware integration. This results in an ecosystem that relies on open source tools readily available in popular Linux distribution.Survey this Session
