Sun Updates Storage Resource Manager
Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced Sun HighGround Storage Resource Manager (SRM) Version 5.0.
According to Sun, the new software builds on the Company's web-based storage resource management application that provides IT managers with critical utilization, consumption and availability data about their enterprise storage. In addition to now incorporating Oracle and Sybase database storage resources, the new software provides consolidated views and alerts of global servers.
"Storage capacity shortages are one of the leading causes of unplanned downtime," says Doug Kennedy, vice president, Global Partnerships, Oracle Corporation. "Customers with fast growing databases are the most likely to experience this downtime, and could clearly benefit from the automated monitoring and alerting the Sun HighGround SRM software offers."
Sun HighGround SRM 5.0 is available now. Pricing for Sun HighGround SRM products is calculated on a per-managed-element basis; pricing starts at $1,000 per managed element. The global reporting option is priced at $2,000 per server.
