IBM announced it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Rembo Technology, a privately held software company based in Geneva, Switzerland. Financial details were not disclosed. The acquisition is expected to be completed in Q2 of 2006.

Rembo is a provider of software that helps organizations automatically install or upgrade operating systems on thousands of servers, laptops and desktop computers simultaneously. IBM said this eliminates the need for IT specialists to spend days or weeks installing software manually on each physical or virtualized computer.

According to the press release, an IT administrator can install operating systems from a centralized "dashboard" in a few minutes with the Rembo software, enabling online business functions to continue unabated. In addition, Rembo's security features can protect workstations used by multiple people in a virtualized environment by automatically "wiping away" operating systems and personal data after each use and re-installing clean software.

"Rembo software makes installing an operating system across thousands of physical and virtual computers fast and efficient," said Al Zollar, general manager for IBM Tivoli software. "With Rembo software, organizations can bring down the cost of managing and securing software across open, diverse environments, which is a key benefit of IT service management."
