Open source management software and services firm OpenLogic Inc has updated its core product offering and announced that it has hired the founder of Hewlett-Packard Co’s Open Source Program Office.
Broomfield, Colorado-based OpenLogic emerged in March with $4m in venture funding and its BlueGlue open source management package, which includes over 125 open source projects grouped together for automated installation, configuration, integration, test, and measurement.
JBoss Inc’s application server, MySQL AB’s database, the Eclipse development environment, and the Apache web server, are just some of the open source projects included in OpenLogic’s BlueGlue, which is designed to take the hassle out of configuring and administering an open source infrastructure stack.
The company has now updated that suite with version 3.5, increasing the number of open source components to over 150, as well as the option for users to add their own selection of open source software or third party commercial software to take advantage of functionality such as license policy management.
Meanwhile OpenLogic has also announced that it has hired Stormy Peters as its director of product management with responsibility for product strategy and driving enterprise adoption of BlueGlue.
Peters has joined from HP where she founded and managed its Open Source Program Office and was responsible for the systems giant’s open source strategy, policy, and business practices. Peters was also a founding member of HP’s Linux division and a co-founder of the Gnome Foundation.
