Native support for ZIP archives makes automating file processing tasks even easier with Flux

Streamlining ZIP archive workflows

Flux accommodates native support for ZIP archives, making it even easier to automate common file processing tasks.

Today, Flux released their latest white paper, Processing ZIP Archives with Flux. Eric Rich, Flux's Director of Development, demonstrates the benefits of Flux’s superior functionality deployed in their workload automation software specifically designed to manage core business processes.

Flux's upcoming major software release, 8.0, will be available in a matter of weeks and accommodates native support for ZIP archives, making it even easier to automate common file processing tasks through their simple point-and-click interface.

Daily tasks for many enterprises include processes such as reporting, file transfers, and Extract Transform Load (ETL). Part of these processes often includes the handling of ZIP archives within a workflow. Managing ad-hoc scripts in a distributed environment can be cumbersome. With an Operations Console (dashboard) and visual workflows, monitoring and administering automated tasks across multiple servers is simplified with Flux.

In this brief white paper, Mr. Rich reviews the typical file processing workflow, management of workflows, and illustrates ease-of-use with Flux’s visual workflow model. Visual workflow aids in the overall understanding of an automated workflow for IT professionals and devops teams. Design, maintenance, and modifications are easily handled.

Flux was recently praised as a Strong Value in Enterprise Management Associates' (EMA) Workload Automation Report. Part of Flux's success is due to their engineering team’s ingeniously simple approach to managing file processing workflows.
