DEC’s POLYCENTER MANAGEMENT NOW EMBRACES UNIX…

By CBR Staff Writer

Digital Equipment Corp says it has added 20 new or enhanced products, services and partnerships to its Polycenter schema for enterprise computing management. There is a new version of the DECmcc family, version 1.2, which adds 12 management modules including autoconfiguration of TCP/IP, DECnet and FDDI nodes, full featured event notification and on-line documentation. DECmcc Unix Distributed Management software integrates system and network management on DEC’s Ultrix and other Unix systems, and extends Network Application Support to Unix. The company has picked up Technically Elite Concepts Inc’s Net/Pod, which enables DECmcc operators to determine local area network usage patterns and detect network problems before they lead to failures; the combination monitors local and remote segments simultaneously. There are new DECinspect network security management products for security analysis and reporting on a network of VMS, Ultrix and SunOS systems. The 2.2 release of DECinspect Compliance Manager is enhanced for VMS and adds Ultrix and SunOS support. There is a new DECinspect Intrusion Detector for VMS, release 1.0, which is designed to challenge hackers by detecting, tracking and invoking countermeasures against suspicious and hostile activities in real time. Additions to Polycenter include UIS-Archive Connection from UIS Inc, which archives data generated on Unix workstations onto VMS servers and UIS-PACS Connection for tracking and charging for use of system resources by Unix workstations on the VMS server. DEC says it plans a new DataCentre Monitor for Ultrix watchdog for SunOS, HP-UX and AIX Unix. It also plans a Unix-based distributed management application for performance, file system and user account management, designed to handle from five to 100 Unix systems.
