UNIX INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES REQUIREMENTS FOR DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT SERVICES

 UNIX INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES REQUIREMENTS FOR
 DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT SERVICES
 PARSIPPANY, N.J., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- UNIX International (UI) today announced the availability of the requirement specifications for two sets of distributed systems management services which will be provided under UI-ATLAS(tm), its framework for open computing. The requirement specifications are for distributed network management applications and for distributed print services.
 Both sets of services will reside within the Distributed Systems Management Framework portion of UI-ATLAS. The distributed network management services include the definition of critical application capabilities including configuration, performance, fault reporting, accounting and security. The distributed print service specifications define high level capabilities including job submission, job queuing, job scheduling and job printing. All of the specifications are consistent with the POSIX and X/Open system management directions. The Distributed Systems Management Framework, under UI-ATLAS, will be consistent with the efforts of other major consortia, such as the OSF, in making portable and interoperable system software easy for end users to acquire and use.
 The requirements announced today, and the UI-ATLAS Systems Management Framework announced in July 1991, provide a means of achieving multi-vendor heterogeneous network and print management which will allow system administrators to more effectively identify and solve complex multi-vendor issues.
 Specification requirements were developed by a UI work group of more than 40 companies which included system vendors, independent software vendors (ISVs) and end users. These specifications have been forwarded to UNIX System Laboratories (USL) to provide APIs and reference technologies. USL has committed to a prompt response to these specifications.
 Systems management is a major component of UI-ATLAS. The Systems Management Framework will allow users to manage and maintain a heterogeneous distributed computing environment. The UI-ATLAS Systems Management Framework and management applications utilize a distributed object model to shield administrators from the complexities of diverse system types. UI-ATLAS addresses the problems usually found in large, diverse and maintenance-intensive computing environments. The UI systems management applications will be conformant with the Object Management Group's (OMG) specifications.
 Peter Cunningham, president and CEO of UNIX International stated "The completion of these requirements mark another success in our movement toward providing the user with the ability to manage both their proprietary and open systems in a consistent fashion."
 UNIX International is the not-for-profit international consortium of more than 260 members which include end users, developers, vendors and systems manufacturers. This broad based membership helps define the future of open systems based on the UNIX System V Release 4 family of operating systems and UI-ATLAS, an open system framework providing the environment and services for distributed, desktop and corporate hub computing.
