Storage vendor nStor Technologies on Monday unveiled an enhanced version of its storage management software suite at Comdex Fall 2001 in Las Vegas.
AdminiStor 6.1 is a tool for IT managers that lets them configure, monitor and centrally manage nStor's NexStor RAID storage subsystems.
The new version supports RAID systems running in Red Hat Linux 6.1 and 7.2, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Sun Solaris networks. The company has also added support for the NexStor 3000 storage arrays, which support SCSI and Fibre Channel-to-SCSI bridging.
AdminiStor consists of four modules:
-- AdminiStor Host, which monitors all programs.
-- AdminiStor Server, which coordinates and monitors database activity.
-- AdminiStor GUI, which provides browser access to system administrators.
-- AdminiStor Data Base, which logs all storage events in chronological order.
The software uses a Java-based graphical interface that works with Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator for local or remote control of NexStor RAID systems. It supports logical unit mapping (LUN) or disk partitioning for server access. All storage events are reported in real-time and alerts can be sent to the management console, as well as to e-mail or via SNMP to other management packages.
AdminiStor 6.1 is available now for US$1,000 per site.
