CA Unicenter puts Splunk to work

Summary:This week at Interop, CA Unicenter Network and Systems Management (NSM) is tagging up with Spunk to assist in accessing and managing server performance data.

Enterprise IT systems management is about to face an onslaught of complexity. As heterogeneity jacks up due to open source stacks and extended B2B ecologies, and as virtualization blurs the lines between platform, hardware, and applications, and also as SOA adoption grows -- so grows the complexity of managing availability and cost for administrators and operators.

This week at Interop, CA Unicenter Network and Systems Management (NSM) is tagging up with Spunk to assist in accessing and managing server performance data. As a prelude to the announcement, I conducted a sponsored briefing podcast with Mell Estrada, senior business and product manager in CA's Enterprise Systems Management business unit, and Michael Baum, chief executive Splunker. In the discussion we examine the newly ramping up problem-solution set facing enterprise IT systems management practitioners, as well as how the CA-Splunk combination adds value to the equation. Have a listen.
