Intel, BMC fund Linux company

Chipmaker Intel and mainframe software company BMC Software have joined others in a $14 million investment in Aduva, a company that seeks to simplify installation and management of Linux systems, the company said Wednesday. Returning investors in the third-round funding include Cap Ventures, Evergreen Management and the Capital Group, the company said. The Intel investment came from its Intel 64 Fund, which seeks to boost the prospects of its newly released 64-bit Itanium family of high-end processors. And through its investment, BMC now has the right to package and resell Aduva's products, including jointly developed software for IBM's zSeries mainframes, which now can run the Linux operating system.
