DG rolls out management tools
Data General (DG) recently introduced DG/ManageSuite, a suite of enterprise management tools for its AviiON server line and storage arrays from its Clariion division.
The tools are focused on providing greater management flexibility in stand-alone and third-party environments based on emerging industry standards such as Windows Management Instrumentation, Common Information Model, and Microsoft Management Console.
Several tools fall under the DG/ManageSuite umbrella, such as NuView`s ClusterX, HP`s ManageX and DG`s NT/Alert, AV/Alert, DGEM and Navisphere storage management suite. Within the DG/ManageSuite itself are DG/KnowlEDGE, ExpressStart, and Remote Server Management, which help capture and store file configuration information, quickly install or recover pre-installed configurations and provide remote management services in Windows NT environments.
DG officials say DG/ManageSuite tools, as well as its umbrella services, help unify server management, storage management, and system diagnostics.
Several of the management products in DG/ManageSuite are pre-installed in the AViiON and CLARiiON systems. Detailed packaging and pricing information will be released early next month.
