Confignia 1.5 Tracks Changes Beyond the Web
The latest release from startup Collation Inc. extends its configuration and change-management software to legacy C++, client/server and custom applications.Collation Inc. wasted no time in following the March debut of its Web applications-configuration and change-management tool with an enhanced release that embraces legacy, non-Web applications. The Confignia tool, which automatically discovers infrastructure components and their dependencies and inter-relationships between the network, system and application level, can now discover and track C++, client/server and custom applications.
Confignia 1.5 also adds the ability to compare and track different infrastructures, such as a staging versus deployment environment, a Quality Assurance testing versus runtime environment, or a Denver versus Chicago data center, according to Ken Rutsky, vice president of marketing for the Palo Alto, Calif. startup. Such comparisons can reveal inconsistencies that could affect performance and availability.
