HP is porting OpenView Operations (OVO) to Linux, and renewing OpenView for Unix in the process. Due next year, the first Linux-based OpenView modules will target applications where Linux is most popular, such as security management and the finance industry.

    OpenView can already manage Linux systems, but the management console itself must run on either HP/UX, Solaris or Windows, said Willi Klenk, HP's research and development manager for OVO. He added that demand for a Linux version mirrors what happened with Windows.

    "What we are seeing with Linux in the market is a kind of deja vu," he said. "Like Windows, it has its favourite application areas - file and print servers, database servers, Web servers."

    The differences between Linux and Unix mean that a straight port is not feasible. However, Klenk said that development of OVO for Linux should be easier than the port to Windows, and will also be used to rejuvenate some of the code in the Unix version which is now some 10 years old.
