Compaq rolls out WBEM software
Compaq Computer Corp. will make its first Web-based enterprise management (WBEM)
software available this month at no charge to current and new Compaq users.
The Insight Manager XE release has WBEM capabilities that about 120 software
developers, including Compaq, announced last year.
Under WBEM, a Web browser can serve as the administrators management console.
Compaq will charge for enhanced support contracts but will not charge a license fee for
the software, officials said.
Insight Manager XE is the first product under Compaqs Insight Manager program,
which covers products and services for Intel Corp. and Digital Equipment Corp. Alpha
servers running Microsoft Windows NT, Novell NetWare, Santa Cruz Operation Unix, Digital
Unix, Digital OpenVMS and Tandem NSK.
