Entuity Deployment for High Availability
Many businesses that depend on High Availability (HA) of their IT infrastructure put processes in place to ensure minimal down time of their Network Management System (NMS).

There are a variety of methods to achieve High Availability of the computer hardware and software supporting the Network Management System.  Similar to the various personal insurance plans we are familiar with, there are options.  There are economical HA NMS plans that provide basic coverage, costly plans that provide extensive coverage, and a range of plans that fit somewhere in between.  The costs of extended HA coverage come in the form of disciplined operational processes, specialized HA hardware, and specialized application software architectures.

This product brief describes some of the basic requirements of a HA NMS and supported solutions to achieve HA for Entuity Network Management. Download now...

Product Brief ThumbnailEntuity's Future-Proof Architecture
As an integral part of Entuity’s industry leading IT infrastructure management solution, StormWorks is a development engine designed to integrate new classes of IT entities into the Entuity management environment, quickly and with a minimum of coding.

StormWorks provides the core platform for a set of services associated with data gathering, storage and presentation. These services eliminate the complexity of writing network and systems management applications similar in manner to the way in which an Operating System eliminates the complexity of the hardware platform on which it runs. It allows development of new configurations to manage new IT infrastructure entities with relatively few lines of text code, and by doing so, dramatically reduces development time from the months or years that hard coding can take.
