LogLogic and Opsware Partner for New Automation Features for the Data Center

By | September 13, 2006

LogLogic — the leader in log management and intelligence, today announced it has joined Opsware´s Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program. Through the partnership, LogLogic and Opsware will provide access to a broad range of Data Center Automation capabilities, enabling customers to more rapidly achieve operational efficiencies and reduce labor costs across their IT infrastructures.

The partnership will usher in new levels of automation for the datacenter, enabling enterprises to enforce IT controls and compliance mandates such as PCI, SOX and ITIL. The Companies will undertake joint sales and marketing and will create joint solutions and offerings for their mutual customers worldwide. The leaders in their respective markets, LogLogic and Opsware will automate critical IT activity surrounding IT management controls such as ITIL and COBIT.

“Together we will drive comprehensive Datacenter Automation,” said Dominique Levin, vice president, product management and business development, LogLogic. “By automating all critical log data in the data center and the key components that power today´s Web application architectures, Opsware and LogLogic will lead the way in enabling IT organizations to automate the management of their globally distributed applications and infrastructure. This has the potential to radically reduce the cost and complexity of managing and implementing datacenters — and meeting new compliance and control mandates.”

“By combining Opsware´s IT Automation software with LogLogic, customers will benefit from a broader spectrum of critical IT Automation capabilities,” said John O´Farrell, executive vice president of business development sales at Opsware Inc. “The joint technologies will provide customers with a comprehensive data center management solution, which has become a necessity for today´s enterprises as they focus on cutting costs, increasing operational efficiencies, and generating immediate ROI.”

With the cost and complexity of today´s IT infrastructure spiraling out of control, enterprises are turning to IT Automation to increase productivity, ensure policy compliance, remediate security threats, and reduce labor expenses. The Opsware Technology Alliance Partner program supports the increasing demand for this technology by providing an effective way to address customer needs for server, network and application automation. As the fastest growing data center automation vendor, Opsware will provide LogLogic — the fastest growing log management and intelligence vendor — the opportunity to integrate with its award-winning IT Automation software and leverage its global sales and marketing activities to generate customer leads and drive revenue.

Through LogLogic´s Open Log Services Architecture, log data can easily be integrated into technology and services such as those offered by Opsware. LogLogic´s vision spans delivering actionable information based on log data from broad application infrastructure sources including servers, networks, software infrastructure, storage and business applications.

Driven by the broad adoption of Internet technologies within enterprises, today´s IT organizations are challenged to manage applications that operate at a scale and complexity exponentially greater than that of even 7-10 years ago. Log data resulting from these applications and related infrastructure can exceed 25% of all enterprise data and costs — unless automated — tens of millions of dollars a year for an enterprise to manage and access. Unlike Security Information Event Management (SIEM) solutions or log tools, LogLogic´s Log Management & Intelligence platform collects all data from these applications and makes the information actionable not only for security and threat mitigation, but also for data center automation, performance management and to validate the quality of IT services delivery.
