Seagate Technology Inc’s software division has laid out plans to integrate its storage management products with kit from its other two divisions – network and systems management and information management – but did not say when that initiative would be completed. Some of the products that Seagate plans to integrate are Crystal Reports, Crystal Info, AshWin, NerveCenter and WinInstall. The Orlando, Florida-based Storage Management Group was created out of the merger of Arcada Software and Seagate’s Palindrome subsidiary in February, at which time the company released five, renamed and somewhat enhanced products under the Seagate banner. Seagate has now announced its first new product since the storage division was created, called Seagate ExecView, which falls into its LAN storage product tier; the others are desktop and enterprise. Exec View is part of the LAN offering and ships later this month. ExecView loads onto the client and requires Seagate Backup Exec for Windows NT or Seagate Backup Exec for Netware – formerly Arcada Backup Exec. A basic version of the technology is included in Seagate Backup Exec, but the new product includes simultaneous, centralized enterprise backup monitoring of both the Windows NT and Netware server products. ExecView also enables network administrators to divide their backup servers into groups and monitor only the ones they desire. ExecView costs $1,400 for five servers, $3,600 for 20 servers; and $5,600 for 50 servers. French, German and Spanish versions will ship in September. Seagate also released an update of its Backup Exec for NetWare 7.11, which includes new features such as full integration of Novell Netware Directory Services (NDS) and the ability to designate users as Backup Exec administrators. It costs about $500 for a single server, 25-user version; $700 for a single server, unlimited user version; and $1,400 for the enterprise edition.
