Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) May 24, 2006
ScienceLogic™ LLC today announced the availability of Version 4.0 of its EM7™ IT Management Appliance. This release marks a major milestone for the EM7 appliance in providing an affordable next-generation framework solution for comprehensive end-to-end monitoring of network, application and IT process availability and performance.
-- Next-Generation “Framework” Solution --
“The latest EM7 release is a direct expression of our vision – to create a next-generation framework solution that addresses the true needs of the IT professional and simplifies IT management through intelligent automation,” said Chris Cordray, a ScienceLogic founder and chief technical officer. “Traditional systems management framework solutions are too complex, too costly and take too long to deploy. We believe that there is a better way, and we have built it.
”One reason for the acquisition frenzy in our market is that framework companies compete to provide every conceivable IT management feature. We have a different philosophy. Based on years of experience and the daily input of our customers, we developed the EM7 appliance with the features that IT professionals really want and need at a fraction of the cost of a traditional solution. When customers choose us, they get all the features – there are no extra modules to buy or complicated licensing headaches.”
-- Version 4.0 – Developments --
Distributed environments, new technologies, compliance requirements and increasingly complex security policies make managing IT more complex than ever. New features in Version 4.0 deliver intelligent automation, workflow tools and business service management views that help to increase productivity and simplify IT management.
- Dynamic Discovery
Next-generation Dynamic Discovery uses stored device profiles (shipped in the product and customizable) to automatically identify devices and apply intelligent monitoring templates to them within hours of install.
- Configuration and Change Management: Dynamic Applications
New Dynamic Application feature automatically collects and displays configuration information on a variety of identified devices and generates events as configuration details change. Users can also browse back in time to see previous results for rapid review of change management history.
- Knowledge Base
Centralized IT Best Practice catalog can be used for storing and searching “How To” manuals, troubleshooting guides, articles, tickets, events, RSS news feeds and any notes throughout the customer’s EM7 system to research issues, support the Service/Help Desk and repair problems faster.
- Business Service Management Views: Virtual Devices
The new Virtual Devices feature provides EM7 users with an easy way to create business-process views that quickly show which customers are impacted by specific application failures.
“I continue to be impressed at the pace of technological innovation that ScienceLogic delivers in its EM7 appliance, “said Chris Ruffieux, VP of Technology at GMTI. “We take full advantage of their nimble, cost-effective and customer-focused approach to solve the IT business problems we have today in real-time.
“Version 4.0 is a perfect example of this. ScienceLogic continues to listen, innovate and deliver solutions that address our multiple site monitoring and capacity management needs through a single highly-available and scalable environment.”
