Opalis announces Availability of award winning run book automation solution on Linux

Opalis Software, Inc., a Run Book Automation firm, announced expected availability of its award winning Opalis Integration Server on Linux in the first half of 2008. Opalis delivers IT process automation capability today for enterprise customers worldwide with heterogeneous IT environments of any scale.

“Our customers have proven success automating processes across large-scale heterogeneous Windows, Linux and Unix environments from a single Opalis platform. They have asked for Linux platform availability to meet specific run book automation scenarios and we have responded to their needs,” said Wes Day, Sr. Director Product Management at Opalis and former Director of Product Management for Novadigm and HP.

“Coupled with recognition from being named as one of Network World’s ‘Top Ten Automation Companies to Watch,’ in addition to Gartner’s ‘Cool Vendors’ for IT Operations Process Automation, our expanded platform support enables us to address more customers as we gain increasing visibility in our market.”

Opalis delivers automation through innovative orchestration and integration of IT processes, thereby reducing the manual repetitive efforts that are burdensome and wasteful for IT organisations, yet must be done to ensure efficient enterprise business operations. This is achieved through a scalable architecture, broad capabilities to automate IT workflows and processes, easy-to-use administrator interface for modification of pre-existing workflows or creation of new ones, and extensive integration capability to hundreds of IT management and provisioning products.

“Opalis Integration Server is the strongest solution in the RBA market with the best balance of enterprise class architecture, deep integration capabilities, market driven feature set, and ease of implementation and use,” said Charles Crouchman, former Sr. VP for Workload Automation at CA and now Opalis Chief Technical Officer.

“As our market and global reach have expanded, our growing customer base would like options in terms of additional deployment platforms. Therefore, 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. We believe that delivering our comprehensive solution with a choice of deployment platforms will position Opalis for continued leadership in the RBA market.”
