OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0 gives enterprises a central repository of approved, certified open-source products within the corporate firewall, the company said. The library also enables companies to automatically install, configure and integrate this software on remote servers and desktops, and provides an audit trail of open-source software deployment, OpenLogic officials said.

In addition, OpenLogic provides a side-by-side installation capability, to allow users to install multiple versions of the same open-source product on the same computer, the company said.

"Even though many of our largest enterprise customers have continued to increase their use of open-source software, they have also been telling us that controlling the use of hundreds of open-source solutions is a time- and labor-intensive process," said Steven Grandchamp, CEO of OpenLogic, in a statement. "We have created OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0 to address many of the challenges unique to managing open-source solutions."
