Scott Hartsell writes "Norcross GA - Green Light Advantage, a member of IBM's PartnerWorld for Developers, has released their proactive system management software, AdminUX 8.8, for SuSE Linux and TurboLinux running on IBM* eServer zSeries and S/390 platforms. We are very excited about making AdminUX for Linux available on the IBM mainframe, said Scott Hartsell, President and CEO of Green Light Advantage.

IBM is currently running live versions of AdminUX on the eServer z900 mainframe at the e-business Briefing Center in Poughkeepsie, NY. AdminUX is being hailed as a Virtual System Administrator for Linux Guest on the z900. AdminUX automates 80% of the recommended, routine, system administration tasks for secure, reliable, Linux system operation.

Businesses everywhere are rolling out Linux on the mainframe in new implementations or using Linux to add new life and increased efficiency to their existing technology investment. The power and reliability of the mainframe, the cost savings benefits of the Linux operating system and virtual partitioning technology are prompting customers, business partners and academics to explore how Linux on the IBM mainframe solves business problems with unmatched reliability and efficiency.

A significant number of our enterprise customers are currently planning or implementing applications on Linux for zSeries and S/390, said Joann Duguid, director, Linux on IBM eServer zSeries. And as more and more customers embrace Linux on the mainframe, powerful system administration tools like AdminUX from Green Light Advantage become increasingly essential for business operations.

As more IBM customers move to install Linux into their enterprise, they are going to be looking for system administration products to assist in their transition and support their goal of reduced total cost of ownership. AdminUX has over a decade of system administration experience and offers a truly proactive system administration capability that fits in well with the "lights out" management that mainframe customers have come to expect. We look forward to helping IBM's customers embrace the Linux operating system by giving them a high-quality, reliable system administrator like AdminUX, Hartsell stated.
