The first product release to ship following Novell's acquisition of Managed Objects is Novell Business Service Manager 4.6. Delivering on Novell's commitment to providing the industry's best business service management solutions this product delivers significant quality, interoperability and currency enhancements.
Business Service Manager 4.6 also marks a milestone in the integration of Novell's PlateSpin workload and virtualization management solutions with our business service management solutions — a new PlateSpin Recon adapter is now available for customers to integrate PlateSpin virtualization information into the Business Service Manager analytical and dashboard environment. Now, using a single dashboard environment, customers can visualize virtual and physical infrastructure workload components—create an inventory of both physical and virtual machines—and profile server workloads and evaluate their performance.
In addition, Business Service Manager 4.6 has added support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11, as well as Microsoft Windows 2008 Server.
Novell Business Service Manager is a strategic component of Novell's vision to deliver a service-driven data center.
