Computer Associates (CA) has announced that it will be supporting the recently formed UnitedLinux coalition. All of CA’s e-business management products will be compatible with the version of Linux to be offered by an alliance of vendors.

“CA has provided continued support to the Linux platform in the marketplace, and we believe the speed of adoption of this platform will enhance further, with the uniform Linux version now being made available for business use,” said AbdulAziz Al-Salloum, managing director of Computer Associates Middle East operations.

UnitedLinux has developed recently from the need for different distributors to join forces to cover different regions and to give businesses a simpler set of options when it comes to considering choices of operating systems. SuSe, TurboLinux, Caldera and Connectiva are the companies behind UnitedLinux.

“As a company that has demonstrated unmatched commitment to Linux as an enterprise computing platform, CA is extremely supportive of the UnitedLinux initiative,” said John Pincomb, vice president of marketing at CA. “We believe that this broad-based cooperative effort will further accelerate the embrace of Linux by customers across all market segments and will enable them to realise the significant technical and business benefits that Linux offers in their distributed and mainframe implementations.”

CA offers more than 50 solutions that enable organisations to manage, secure, preserve and integrate Linux distributed and mainframe implementations across their heterogeneous enterprises. CA said that it would continue to work closely with the Linux community to ensure the full compatibility of its solutions with all major distributions, including Red Hat.
