Quoting from The Web Hosting Industry:
Data center automation software developer BladeLogic (bladelogic.com) announced on Monday that it has released BladeLogic Operations Manger 6. The latest version of the company’s flagship data center automation software allows organizations to simplify the management of data center environments by modeling and managing services so that provisioning, change and compliance actions are executed at the service level while the underlying devices and associated configuration settings are automatically managed in the background.
The latest release also features support for VMWare ESX and SUSE Linux, architectural enhancements that allow management of servers across multiple data centers, new APIs and the availability of BladeLogic Configuration Connector, which allows IT organizations to manage configuration information stored in external repositories such as SQL and LDAP or non host-based devices such as load balancers and firewalls.
“Organizations today need to evolve their IT environment to a state where resources can be easily and quickly re-purposed to meet changing business requirements,” says Dev Ittycheria, president and CEO of BladeLogic. “With the availability of Operations Manager 6, BladeLogic dramatically extends its leadership position by delivering the most complete solution in the marketplace today.”
BladeLogic Operations Manager 6, available immediately, is priced at $1,500 per server.
