RELEASES ALERTITT DESKTOP MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
-Based on AlertITT technology, software enables Web-based enterprise
SUNNYVALE, CA--FEBRUARY 14, 2000--AMD
today introduced AlertITT software, a system management application
that monitors critical functions of networked PCs and automatically
alerts system administrators to potential problems before they occur.
The AlertIT software, available free of charge, can
be customized to trigger alerts based on critical events such as chassis
intrusion or loss of a network link. The AlertIT software can also notify
administrators of changes in motherboard-related voltages, temperatures,
fan speeds and disk drive space parameters that exceed or fall below
pre-set thresholds. Based on AMD's AlertIT technology, the software
is designed to lower the total cost of ownership for connected PCs and
minimize system downtime.
"AlertIT software offers a compelling tool for system
administrators and network managers by giving them extensive visibility
into and control over all facets of their network," said Dr. Laila Razouk,
vice president of the Network Products Division at AMD. "Furthermore,
the integration of our AlertIT technology with industry leading enterprise
management software helps network managers reduce the total cost of
ownership of networked systems by providing a complete solution right
out of the box."
AlertIT software provides industry-standard Desktop
Management Interface (DMI) and Common Interface Model (CIM) -based hardware
instrumentation, and an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface for client
desktops and the server management console. Adhering to CIM standards
through Microsoft's Windowsr Management Interface (WMI) specification
enables web-based management, giving the network administrator the ability
to monitor system activity and troubleshoot system issues from any machine
on the network.
The AlertIT technology is the latest addition to AMD's
Managed Performance Portfolio (MPP), a comprehensive suite of technologies
designed to improve network and system performance and manageability.
The Managed Performance Portfolio, combined with AMD's industry leading
networking silicon, such as the PCnet-FASTT III single-chip
10/100 Mbps Ethernet controller, offers the next generation in connectivity
solutions with powerful new features incorporated in an enhanced set
of software tools.
AMD's AlertIT software supports Microsoftr Windows-based
platforms including Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows 95 and Windows
NTr. The AlertIT software is designed with a modular architecture
and operates as a complete and independent management solution. It can
also be integrated using script files with the leading management software
applications, including Computer Associates Unicenter TNG or Microsoft
System Management Server (SMS).
The AlertIT technology is a key component of the recently
announced Computer Associates Unicenter TNG Desktop Edition product.
Unicenter TNG Desktop Edition was jointly developed by AMD and Computer
Associates and will be available at no cost from both companies later
in the first quarter.
AlertIT software is offered free of charge and is available
immediately through the AMD field sales organization.
