BMC BladeLogic Operations Manager Suite
The BMC BladeLogic Operations Manager Suite is a leading platform for the management, control and enforcement of configuration changes in the data center. It consists of three modules that address the three most pressing needs in the data center: Configuration, Compliance, and Virtualization.
The BMC BladeLogic Configuration Module for Servers (part of the BladeLogic Operations Manager) uses a policy-based approach to provision, patch, configure, and update servers across platforms. Changes are applied to a policy and then synchronized with the target servers. This bi-directional approach lowers the cost and errors associated with managing server infrastructure. It also features a cross-platform, command line interface (Network Shell) that supports single-sign on using a range of authentication protocols. All user communication is encrypted, and all user actions are logged and can be authorized based on a user's role.
IT compliance measurement is often a costly, manual process that requires domain experts. With the BMC BladeLogic Compliance Module for Servers, you can measure compliance with internal and external standards and regulations. You can create policies based on internal best practices, vendor recommendations (like PCI DSSS), or frameworks like COBIT. The policies enforce compliance through prevention and remediation. With the reporting capabilities, you’ll be able to demonstrate compliance with standards and the presence of appropriate controls.
BMC BladeLogic Virtualization Module for Servers enables IT organizations to manage both physical and virtual environments from a unified management platform resulting in greater infrastructure consistency and reduced downtime. Through BladeLogic Virtualization Manager's integrated approach, it is transparent to an end user whether a given server or application service being managed is running on a physical machine or on a virtual instance residing in a virtual container.
