Hewlett-Packard Co has also announced new OpenView software for managing IBM Corp Systems Network Architecture networks. The new OpenView SNA Node Manager follows the release of OpenView Node Manager for NetWare last month, and according to the company, if the two products are used with OpenView Network Node Manager they provide complete management of both environments from a single system: this combined implementation is being called the OpenView NetworkCentre. Like the Node Manager for NetWare, the SNA Node Manager is based on software licensed from Carlsbad, California-based Peregrine Systems Inc, and is said to provide real-time status updates from the SNA network, and also enable host-authorised users to send VTAM commands and receive responses via the comand and control interface. The module is Unix-based, and can either be used with OpenView, or on its own through VTAM. The product is scheduled to ship in the first quarter of next year: a user licence for the HP 9000 Series 800 business Server or the Apollo 9000 Series 700 workstation is to cost $12,750, while a 10 sub-area licence for the SNA agent on MVS will be priced at $15,000.
