EMC is shipping EMC Smarts Application Discovery Manager (ADM) 5.0 to improve datacentre management.
The program allows firms to measure the impact of infrastructure incidents and configuration changes on business service availability.
Chris Gahagan, EMC senior vice-president for resource management software, said, “Our acquisition of nLayers three months ago was driven by our strategy to provide infrastructure management across the application, network, server and storage domains.
“With increased IT complexity, companies need broader insight into the behaviour of these domains and how they interact to drive business services. With EMC Smarts Application Discovery Manager 5.0, we’re taking the next step by using the power of EMC Smarts in the applications domain.”
Enterprises can detect, log and report on software and hardware configuration changes and compare them on a server-to-server basis.
The new software extends EMC’s existing real-time discovery and mapping capabilities, adding reconciliation, federation, analytics and new dashboards.
Smarts ADM 5.0 has an entry level price of £27,000.
