Tideway Rolls Out Foundation 7.0
The latest version helps users see relationships and dependencies between servers.Tideway Systems, an IT automation software company, announced Oct. 31 the availability of Tideway Foundation 7.0, which maps application relationships to physical and virtual infrastructure, including the dependencies between them. The New York-based company said Tideway Foundation 7.0 better responds to changing data center requirements by offering a next-generation architecture and a new, pattern-based reasoning engine power that allows enterprises to model business-critical applications in dynamic IT environments.
Tom Caddoo, head of systems monitoring and management for Wachovia, of Charlotte, N.C., piloted the Foundation software during a recent data center relocation. "As weve been growing, it has become important to us to make our data centers more geographically diverse," Caddoo said. "To move servers that are in our data center, it was important to know what dependencies existed between them and between the applications they are serving up," he said.
