NEW SOFTWARE ENHANCES SYSTEM MANAGEMENT, MONITORING FOR UNISYS E-@CTION SERVERS.
Unisys Corporation has announced Unisys e-@ction Enterprise Server Software 3.0, providing enterprise customers with new capabilities for data center-class reliability, performance, manageability and uninterrupted solution availability.
Included with Unisys e-@ction Enterprise Servers ES7000 and ES5000, Enterprise Server Software 3.0 enhances server administration, featuring automated corrective actions and extended platform management.
The new release introduces Server Director, which integrates the current Enterprise Server Software tools with NetIQ AppManager technology to provide centralized monitoring and management of Windows-based servers and operating systems. It can seamlessly accommodate the full AppManager product for management of Windows-based applications.
The Server Director enables tight integration with enterprise management infrastructures such as Computer Associates CA-Unicenter, IBM Tivoli and Hewlett-Packard OpenView. The software release includes Computer Associates NetworkIT 2.0 for network management and B&L Associates Vertices media management, providing a comprehensive range of systems management utilities in a single, integrated package.
The Server Director is now aligned to be seamlessly integrated with the Microsoft infrastructure for managing systems running in a Windows 2000 environment. Under a recently announced agreement with NetIQ, Microsoft will license NetIQ technology for managing the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system and Microsoft .NET Enterprise Servers.
Microsoft announced that it will designate NetIQ as its premier independent software vendor (ISV) for solutions built on Microsoft's operations management product. Microsoft's choice of NetIQ technology validates Unisys decision to use the NetIQ AppManager infrastructure as the foundation for Server Director.
Server Director allows administrators to optimize the performance and ensure the availability of Windows 2000 on Unisys e-@ction Enterprise Servers from one central, easy-to-use console. In addition, Unisys Server Director significantly reduces server support costs through automated event detection and corrective actions, such as process workload balancing.
Server Director can also be seamlessly upgraded to NetIQ AppManager to perform enterprise-wide application management in Windows 2000 environments.
NetworkIT optimizes network performance and availability by monitoring network performance from the end-user and system perspectives. This enables administrators to proactively manage the environment by providing an accurate picture of the network's performance.
