Linux vendors seeking larger enterprise deployments have been taking more effort of late to upgrade their system management tools. Last week, Canonical released a significantly updated version of its own Ubuntu system management software, Landscape.

Such tools "are especially important for our customers," said Sabine Soellheim, SUSE solution marketing manager. "Linux has a very specific management space," she said. Traditional system management software, such as Hewlett-Packard's OpenView, aren't specifically designed to handle Linux in as much detail, and are more expensive as well than dedicated Linux tools, Soellheim said.

The price for SUSE Manager starts at US$10,000.
