BMC Bulks Up Patrol Platform
BMC Software Inc. continues to roll out products that exploit its new Patrol 7 distributed architecture for application management.
The enterprise systems management provider, calling this the enablement release, last week shipped a new agent, made the Patrol management platform easier to install and enhanced the security of the management suite.
The latest Patrol release will support additional Patrol enhancements due later this year, including a new console and software distribution capabilities. It provides a common communications protocol, a common data repository and common reporting.
BMC, of Houston, also enhanced Patrols security mechanisms and added support for Linux on IBMs zSeries mainframes.
Pricing starts at $815 per server.
