Platform Computing Inc. will unveil management software this week designed to improve the availability and reliability of Web sites.
SiteAssure Suite is policy-based management software that works in conjunction with Cisco Systems' LocalDirector load-balancing product to intelligently distribute traffic to intranet, extranet, and Web-based commerce servers.
SiteAssure monitors the servers' CPU utilization, disk space and memory availability, and other factors that could affect server performance. The software prevents servers overloaded with requests or experiencing failures from receiving requests and alerts IT staff to disabled devices.
Prices for SiteAssure, which operates on NT and Unix servers, start at $20,000.
