Softworks Inc, the Alexandria, Virginia-based systems management software and services unit recently spun off by Computer Concepts Corp, yesterday announced additions to its CenterStage storage product line up for Windows NT and Oracle database storage environments. The company used the Stockage 2000 storage show in Paris to announce the beta availability of CenterStage/MP for Windows NT and the upcoming availability of CenterStage/Extended for Oracle databases (versions 7.3 and above). Lisa Welch, Softworks’ VP technology said that CenterStage/MP for Windows NT monitors NT’s storage subsystems, uncovers and analyzes bottlenecks, takes corrective action or recommends solutions where automation is not possible. With CenterStage/Extended for Oracle databases, an organization can effectively manage DB2 and Oracle database storage resources from one or more management consoles, she said. Welch said one of the main benefits of CenterStage is that it frees up technical staff by automatically monitoring storage and data resources on multiple platforms across the enterprise including Sun Solaris, IBM AIX, HP-UX, IBM’s MVS/ESA and OS/390. CenterStage also works on a number of platforms and CenterStage/MP for Windows NT will be generally available this month. Pricing begins at $1,500 per server. CenterStage/Extended for Oracle will be available in first quarter of 1999, starting at $8,000 per data base server. Softworks, which filed for an IPO in June (CI No 3,422), went public in August. The company is still 70% owned by Computer Concepts Corp.
