Computer Associates announced on Tuesday that it is porting its Unicenter TNG systems management environment to Red Hat Linux.
The Unicenter TNG Framework for Linux will be available by the middle of the year, said Yogesh Gupta, CA?s senior vice president of product strategy.
The Framework will be distributed for free, but Computer Associates will sell specific management applications on top of it. Pricing for these applications was not announced.
Red Hat will distribute the CA Unicenter TNG Framework free with its Red Hat Linux operating system, and both companies will jointly market and sell solutions based on Red Hat Linux and Unicenter.
Gupta said the relationship with Red Hat Software was not exclusive. However, he would not say when ? or if ? other Linux distributions such as those of Caldera or Suse would be supported.
Last summer, CA announced that it would port its Ingres database to Linux. But Yogesh Gupta said that CA was unlikely to convert to Linux?s Open Source distribution model. ?I don?t see CA in the near future using the Open Source model for its own software,? said Gupta.
