Opsware Opens Its Wallet
With businesses increasingly deploying complex Web-based applications, IT managers often need to tweak their data center kit to provide additional capacity. Reconfiguring each server individually is costly and time-consuming, hence the move towards software that can make these changes automatically.
This is Opsware recognizing that configuration and change management has to go beyond servers and software, she says, noting that the deal adds network management to Opswares portfolio of products.
Renditions flagship offering is the TrueControl network automation product, which tracks and regulates changes across routers, switches, firewalls, and load balancers. But the deal is about more than just technology: Opsware has also got a foot in the door with Renditions customer base, which includes big hitters such as Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), Nortel Networks Corp. (NYSE/Toronto: NT), the U.S. Department of Defense, and the National Security Agency.
