Seneca College in Toronto will work with a local software developer to move a network management tool for Linux to the open source model.

Two-year-old Tenth Power Technologies Inc. announced the arrangement with Seneca that will see students at Canada’s largest college work on ongoing development of its LANUX software.

Dennis Bernhard, chief executive of Tenth Power, said his company primarily provides services and custom development to Linux users, and developed LANUX for its own use in managing clusters of Linux systems for two of its customers.

Tenth Power will make its money by offering custom development, support and other services related to LANUX.
