Introducing OpsWise Automation Center

LOS ALTOS, CA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - Silicon Valley-based IT automation startup OpsWise Software today introduced Automation Center, a new enterprise software product that solves modern enterprise job scheduling and workload automation challenges.

Automation Center represents a significant advancement in terms of architecture and ease-of-use, in an industry where leading products are several decades old and new capabilities are often awkwardly bolted on as expensive add-ons after the fact.

"Automation Center represents a new breed of IT Operations automation products," says Doug Pushard, CEO of OpsWise. "Customers can be up in production and seeing value in hours, not days or weeks," he continues.

Automation Center is the only product in its space that provides an Enterprise-class Universal Architecture that works seamlessly on the major operating systems, including Linux, Windows, z/OS, and the major UNIX platforms. It is fully Web 2.0 enabled with an intuitive web-based interface and integrated reporting, workflow, and dashboards. The solution also addresses recent challenges facing IT in terms of auditing and network security.

"We use the OpsWise Automation Center to run 1,000s of production jobs daily in our heterogeneous computing environment, allowing us to reliably process data generated by billions of ad impressions from our ADSDAQ Exchange," says Paul George, Senior Systems Architect ContextWeb, a New York-based provider of high-precision, real-time contextual advertising solutions. He continues, "Their fully Web 2.0-enabled job scheduler has readily met our complex requirements and provides clarity for our workflows."

The product will be of tremendous value to new enterprises looking for solutions that closely match their infrastructure as well as established data centers looking to modernize to address the emergence of real-time workload automation while still providing integration with legacy batch environments.

"OpsWise is entering the market at a very interesting time -- the emergence of SOA, maturation of web technologies, and the significant hurdles faced in managing the explosion of virtualized environments mean that companies are looking for new ways to manage their expanding workload automation challenges," says Richard Ptak, Managing Director, Ptak, Noel & Associates.

Key Product Features Include:
1. Unified Architecture - run server or agents on Linux, Windows, z/OS,
   Solaris, AIX, HP-UX or z/Linux in a clustered architecture. Agents drop
   in and auto-configure with server.
2. All user and administrative functions carried out via a Web Browser.
   User Interface is augmented by Web 2.0 technologies to deliver
   sophisticated real-time notification and workflow of a desktop
   application.
3. Integrated reporting with report distribution and data export
   capabilities, delivering reporting to your inbox.
4. User configurable dashboards provide users with a customized view
   of workload
5. Secure network communications using SSL and integrated auditing
   capabilities. Every user action and command is logged by the system
   and available via reporting.
