Opalis Announces Linux Support for Integration Server

Opalis' run-book automation solution will be available for Linux platforms early next year

Opalis Inc. has announced that its run-book automation (RBA) product, the Opalis Integration Server, will be available for Linux during the first half of 2008.

"Our customers have proven success automating process across large-scale heterogeneous Windows, Linux and Unix environments from a single Opalis platform," said Wes Day, Opalis' Senior Director of Product Management, in a statement. "They have asked for Linux platform availability to meet specific run-book automation scenarios and we have responded to their needs."

According to a company press release, Opalis' Integration Server features "scalable architecture" and "extensive integration capabilities" that let users integrate and automate their IT processes -- including triage and escalation processes, service requests, maintenance, and disaster recovery routines.

One benefit for companies, according to Opalis, is lower operational costs, as automation replaces "manual repetitive efforts." Companies can also better monitor their policy compliance by automating their audits and remediation processes.

Regarding the upcoming Linux support for the Opalis Integration Server, Charles Crouchman, Opalis' chief technical officer, said in a statement: "We are committing to provide a complete version of the Opalis Integration Server on the Linux platform. We intend to complete the platform support matrix with support for commercial Unix platforms in subsequent releases."
