CA and SGI take enterprise management to the Web

Unicenter TNG adopted for SGI Web site provisioning

Computer Associates' Unicenter TNG enterprise management software is moving into the Web site provisioning market, following its adoption by SGI as its only optimised management component for its Internet platforms. The Unicenter TNG Web Management Option (snappy name, people) can be used by SGI customers to monitor business-critical Web functions and to automate Internet/intranet functions. SGI is using the software as part of its drive for market share in ISPs and large-scale Internet sites. "More and more companies are deploying sophisticated Internet services as critical components of their sales, marketing and operations functions. And with the growing popularity of the Internet, the constituencies of these sites are often very large," said Mike Apker, director of marketing, Internet Systems Division for Silicon Graphics. "The incorporation of Unicenter TNG management technology into our high-end Internet services platform gives customers the facilities they need to assure that their technology investments deliver business results and that ongoing ownership costs can be kept to a minimum." Unicenter monitors Web site activity, giving data on CPU usage, hits, traffic load, disk space use, status of services, and other different server- and URL-specific parameters. It also reports on URLs receiving the most hits, URLs that users could not access because they couldn't be found, and the number of times users abandon attempts to download pages. We think we want one. ® Click for more stories
