Do you experience these Linux Management challenges ?

  • Manage a large number of Linux images on mainframe

  • Configuration compatibility

  • Compliance due to latest security vulnerabilities

  • Substantial Downtime while updating systems

  • Version Consistency across multitudes of Servers

  • Consistent deployments of IBM middleware (such as WAS, DB2, MQ etc.) and more on top of the Linux stack

  • Provision new servers with wide varieties of configuration and application types

  • Increase Linux Skills “on the Job”

  • Vendor Lock In


Introducing Aduva Onstage to address these challenges

OnStage ensures complete System / Security Compliance and Integrity for any IBM Mainframe Linux System stack.


How Aduva does it - Solution

OnStage

Automating Linux Managementutilizing an Enhanced RPM Rules Knowledge Base

  • Application Deployment

  • Configuration Management

  • Change Management

  • Patch Control

Universal Knowledgebase (UKB)

Automated Lab – Tests & Enhance UKB

Implementation Methodology & SLA


What does onstage do partial list
What Does OnStage Do? (Partial list)

  • Automates the System Deployment and Management of Linux based systems and applications – from Testing, thru Deployment and Production for either Mainframe and or Distributed environments

  • Eases the Complex Configuration and Change of Linux based system

  • Allows for a single console management of heterogeneous Linux environments – both Mainframes and Distributed, Red Hat and SUSE etc.

  • Proactively Ensures no Linux Security or System vulnerabilities due to missing updates or upgrades

  • Learns, Compiles and Utilizes Customer Specific system environment dependencies

  • Proactively Detects dependency conflicts, Analyzes sources of incompatibilities, Recommends and Resolves appropriate fixes and can automate resolution distribution across a whole topology of servers – WITH NO SYSTEM DOWNTIME


What can be accomplished with onstage
What can be accomplished with OnStage

  • Shortens the Linux system management learning curve

  • Enable a limited staff to scale their management of large numbers of servers

  • Faster Linux system builds, tests and deployments

  • Increased stability and security in deploying properly configured Linux systems

  • Automated provisioning, replication and distribution of stable Linux environments

  • Reduce Production Support downtime and breakage due to improperly implemented systems, updates and upgrades

  • Resolves and updates with minimal downtime

  • Incorporates a Knowledge base of generic Linux dependencies from Aduva Labs

  • Automatically Builds customer specific dependencies rules on site

  • Facilitates the Management activities of

    • Application deployment,

    • Configuration Management,

    • Change management and Patch Control

  • Injects Dependency knowledge;

    • Proactively Detects dependency conflicts,

    • Analyzes sources of incompatibilities,

    • Recommends and Resolves appropriate fixes

    • Schedules automated resolution distribution
