HighGround enhances SRM

Dave Simpson

Last month, HighGround Systems released version 2.0 of its Storage Resource Manager software for Windows NT-based predictive reporting and storage management. (For a hands-on review of the product, see IT/IS Labs review.)

The new release includes a number of enhancements to the Web-based storage management tool, including:

- Exception-based management of NT disks, partitions, files and users with network-wide thresholds on user consumption (quota management), disk partition free space and disk defects.

- Alerts via email, SNMP traps, and the NT event log.

- Computer, user, and partition groups for management along organizational, geographical, or business lines.

- Enhanced control over network scan times and scan frequencies to fit network schedules.

- Group-based rollup reports for storage accounting.

- Integration with SNMP management frameworks such as CA-Unicenter, HP OpenView, and Tivoli TME.

- Support for Digital Alpha NT servers and workstations.

In addition, HighGround reduced the price of SRM to $995 per server for the Network Edition, or $495 for the Single Server Edition. An SRM Agent for Windows NT Server is priced at $399; for NT Workstation, $49.
