NetIQ Expands Linux Management Solution to Include Support for Oracle RDBMS and Oracle Application Server on Red Hat Linux

New Modules Extend NetIQ's Comprehensive Web Infrastructure Management Solution

Press Release


At the Enterprise Linux Forum, NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems & Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, today announced two new Linux-based modules for NetIQ® AppManager® Suite. The AppManager® for Oracle RDBMS and AppManager® for Oracle Application Server modules are now available for Red Hat Linux environments. This further expands NetIQ's comprehensive solution for managing Linux-based Web infrastructures.

AppManager is the only comprehensive systems management solution that provides monitoring, diagnostics and resolution, reporting and analysis, and automation for mission-critical Windows, Linux and UNIX distributed systems. NetIQ first introduced Linux management capabilities in February 2002 with AppManager for Red Hat Linux. Since then, Linux support on AppManager has grown to address the complexity and scale of managing Web-based application infrastructures including:

  • Application servers
    • BEA WebLogic
    • IBM WebSphere
    • Sun ONE Application Server
    • Oracle Application Server - NEW
  • Web servers
    • Apache
    • IBM HTTP Server
    • Sun ONE Web Server
  • Database server
    • Oracle RDBMS - NEW
  • Messaging and middleware servers
    • IBM WebSphere MQ
    • Sendmail
  • Tools and utilities
    • WebTrends® Reporting Center
    • Tivoli Storage Manager

The AppManager® Web Console provides a unified Web interface to centrally manage Linux, UNIX and Windows platforms and applications from Netscape or Internet Explorer. Linux administrators who manage a distributed environment can monitor systems and application performance from any workstation.

"The NetIQ AppManager Suite is a welcome addition to the broad and growing set of solutions supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux," said Deb Woods, director of product management for Red Hat. "As enterprise customers increasingly deploy Linux in heterogeneous environments, the availability of Red Hat Ready systems management solutions, such as AppManager, will continue to ease their migration from costly, proprietary platforms."

AppManager for Linux deployments nearly doubled as NetIQ Linux- and UNIX-based customer base grew by 1,000 percent during the past year.

"As enterprise customers scale their IT infrastructure and assign more mission-critical tasks to their Linux-based systems, NetIQ delivers the management capabilities they need quickly and easily," said David Pann, vice president of product management in the Systems Management Group at NetIQ. "AppManager provides comprehensive management and consolidated reporting of their Linux-based systems and applications as part of the overall IT environment."

NetIQ will demonstrate its Linux management solutions in booth 200 at Enterprise Linux Forum. Jim McQuaid, a product manager in the Systems Management Group at NetIQ, will present "Managing and Securing Linux in the Enterprise" on Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2003, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Eastern time at the Washington Conference Center in Washington, D.C.
