Axeda Systems Releases DRM 3.7
Software and service provider Axeda Systems Inc.has released Axeda DRM 3.7. The Axeda Service application adds a tree view that shows a flexible topology including any combination of customers, models, regions, organizations, locations and systems. Device status is aggregated, showing an overview of all device states at any point in the tree. The system supports an unlimited number of devices in an easy-to-use web interface. To scale in real world deployments, Axeda DRM uses server managed device communications to control peaks of traffic that result from situations such as Internet outages, or a scheduled maintenance shutdown of the central enterprise server, without loosing a single device transaction. To maintain peak DRM system performance with both device transactions and user requests, the system archives older data to secondary storage, while maintaining recent data on-line. On user request, archived data can be restored to the on-line system. Axeda Policy Manager allows authorized security personnel at customer sites to establish and enforce security and privacy policies for data transfer and remote operation of devices and systems at their location. When DRM is installed at a customer site, the Axeda Deployment application automatically discovers all devices and systems to be monitored. Through one simple application, an entire site can be set up in minutes. Connectivity parameters and important device information is collected, and all monitored assets are automatically registered with the DRM system. Axeda DRM 3.7 includes out-of-the-box connectivity to standard hardware including PC's, servers, storage, and networking equipment. Protocols supported include WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation), JMX (Java Management Extensions), OPC (OLE for Process Control), ODBC (Open Database Connectivity), and expanded support for SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).
