HP Will Acquire RLX To Bolster Blades

The deal helps HP beef up Linux-based blade management.

Hewlett-Packard on Monday said it has signed an agreement to acquire RLX Technologies to enhance Linux management on blade server environments.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but the transaction is expected to be closed within 30 days, according to HP, Palo Alto, Calif.

RLX is a Spring, Texas-based provider of blade server management software. Its flagship product is RLX Control Tower, a Linux-based management suite. HP said the RLX acquisition would help it deliver a unified infrastructure management solution across Linux, Unix and Windows operating environments.

After the deal is finalized, RLX will be integrated into HP’s Technology Solutions Group, HP said.

“With Linux’s expansion into blade server environments, customers want tools that deliver simpler and more robust management,” said Rick Becker, vice president and general manager of HP BladeSystems, in a statement.
