Artecon launches management software
In an effort to reduce storage management costs, Artecon has introduced RAIDScape 1.0, enterprise storage management software designed to centralize administration of distributed network storage. From a single console, RAIDScape can configure, maintain, and monitor Artecon disk arrays attached to multiple server platforms running different operating systems. RAIDScape reports storage system status to enterprise management software such as HP`s OpenView, IBM/Tivoli`s TME, or Computer Associates` UniCenter via SNMP traps, allowing administrators to manage network servers and storage devices from a single enterprise console.
A single RAIDScape configuration is included with each Artecon SuperFlex and RAIDPro storage system. Additional server licenses are priced at $995 each. Five-server site licenses start at $1,414.
