Cybermation Provides Enterprise-Wide Job Scheduling for Linux

Markham, Ontario -- July 5, 2004 -- Cybermation, a leading developer of enterprise job scheduling and software change management solutions, announces a complete enterprise-wide job scheduling solution for Linux by making its ESP Espresso distributed job scheduling solution available for the Linux platform. This further extends event-based automation of job processing across distributed environments to help enterprises increase productivity and achieve significant cost savings, and initially targets Red Hat and SuSe.

The company also announced a new version of its ESP Agent for Linux for use with both ESP Espresso and ESP Workload Manager for zSeries environments. This announcement allows customers to take full advantage of the virtualization capabilities that zSeries platforms provide for Linux.

The new ESP Agent for Linux optimizes ESP Espresso's ability to integrate and manage complex job processes for the Linux platform. It supports current technology like Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) and JavaScript, which are used extensively by developers who work on the Linux platform. Legacy systems are easily integrated with J2EE systems, and ESP Espresso allows Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs) to be executed as part of the normal job schedule. Additionally, it automates jobs by subscribing to JMS queues so that when a job completes, ESP Espresso publishes a JMS job message and then triggers additional automation across the enterprise, adding agility not found in other products.

"Cybermation continues to help our customers lower their total cost of ownership by providing up-to-the-minute solutions," said Ray Nissan, Cybermation's CEO. "Our new ESP offerings extend job scheduling even further across the enterprise to include Linux. This increases output and saves time without requiring additional hardware."
