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.
