Unison Maestro integrated with leading UNIX network and systems management frameworks; Maestro Certified for HP OpenView and OperationsCenter, and IBM's NetView.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 14, 1995--Unison Software announced that Unison Maestro has become the only commercial-strength job scheduler for Unix systems that is certified as being fully integrated with the leading Unix network and systems management frameworks, Hewlett-Packard's OpenView and OperationsCenter, and IBM's NetView.

"Our customers are working to achieve centralized control over the enterprise," said Tanya Candia, vice president of marketing for Unison Software. "We tightly integrated Maestro with the leading network and systems management frameworks to attain this goal. Maestro is the only job scheduler in the Unix market today to reach this level of integration. This provides our customers with a tremendous advantage."

Unison Maestro is a distributed workload management product that schedules applications and jobs across a network. It was selected for HP's OpenView Premier Solutions Partner Program in April 1994, received NetView certification in late 1994, and is now fully integrated with HP's OpenView Network Node Manager and OperationsCenter.

Unison currently has more than 350 customers using Maestro for Unix. Customers include The Prudential, Home Depot, Northern Telecom, Nike Securities, Signet Bank, and Weyerhaeuser.

OpenView and NetView Integration

Unison Maestro is tightly integrated with HP's OpenView and IBM's NetView at every level, including the user interface, data, protocol access, and events.

Maestro can be launched from OpenView or NetView, and Unison has defined several "submaps" to illustrate where Maestro is running on the network and its status. Maestro also uses OpenView or NetView databases to store CPU and process information used to generate the maps.

Utilizing SNMP Agents

Unison has developed an SNMP manager for Maestro, which collects the information to be displayed by the OpenView or NetView management system's GUI. Maestro also has an SNMP agent which keeps track of the local Maestro operations, and can signal "traps" (a method whereby an SNMP agent lets the manager know if an event has occurred).

The information collected by the SNMP agent is delivered to Unison's own MIB (Management Information Base), which is a list of all the information on Maestro that can be communicated to OpenView and NetView.

OperationsCenter Integration

Maestro is also fully integrated with OperationsCenter, HP's systems management framework that extends the capabilities of OpenView. With OperationsCenter, systems administrators can monitor Maestro exception messages and take appropriate action. Some of the messages result in automatic action. For example, if a job does not complete successfully, OperationsCenter can tell Maestro to run a recovery job.

Pricing and Availability

Maestro is currently available under release 4.03. Pricing starts at $7,995 for the first system.
