This article provides information on the Vintela Systems Manager (VSM) made by Vintela Inc. in the cooperation with Microsoft Corp. VSM, scheduled for release in the first half of 2005, will demonstrate distribution of management packs from MOM to UNIX systems as well as reception of relevant alerts in Microsoft Office Manager (MOM) from the same UNIX systems. VSM is used to demonstrate how MOM 2005 users can extend management capabilities natively to UNIX, Linux, and Mac OS X systems. Using the existing MOM infrastructure, VSM allows information technology (IT) administrators to manage UNIX, Linux, and Mac OS X resources from the existing MOM administrator, operator, and Web consoles as well as the MOM reporting mechanism. When it is released in 2005, VSM will enable organizations to consolidate and standardize the management of both Windows and non-Windows systems into the Microsoft management infrastructure they already have in place. Dave Wilson, president of Vintela said that just as the Vintela Management Extensions product extended the reach of Microsoft Systems Management Server 2003 to non-Windows systems, VSM will extend the reach of MOM to UNIX, Linux, and Mac. Being able to work with Microsoft to demonstrate this capability at IT Forum is an exciting prospect for Vintela as a company and for anyone struggling to bring uniformity to management of heterogeneous networking environments.
