NEI launches new version of Element Manager

Claims to deliver low-maintenance lifecycle management in both physical and virtual environments

By CBR Staff Writer

NEI has released Element Manager 3.0, which it claims to allow software developers to build and deploy secure, hardened offerings, with low-maintenance lifecycle management in both physical and virtual environments.

The company said that the new version is alarming console used to monitor appliance health, automate alarming and updates, deploy OS and application patches, schedule backups and restore field-deployed appliances.

According to NEI, the new version includes tools and resources to allow customers scale and manage deployments, including Multi-Appliance Console that allows all deployed appliances to perform from a single appliance without the need for a separate, management server; and Smart Task Manager that reduces end user maintenance requirements by predefining and scheduling cleanup, archive and backup tasks.

The new version also includes Update Manager Enhancements that provides a facility to update all software on the appliance and these upgrades improve performance, reduce network traffic and enhance error recovery and reporting; and Virtual Appliance that allows software vendors to deliver physical and virtual appliances as a common service with identical look and feel and feature set, the company said.
