Jersey City, NJ, United States, 2011/03/02 - Evolven support for Oracle WebLogic detects granular configuration changes and classifies them by criticality and impact to facilitate less downtime while enhancing stability.
Evolven Software Inc., the pioneer of Granular Configuration Automation solutions, today announced their support for Oracle WebLogic application server. Evolven will enable customers to achieve greater visibility into the granular configuration information of Oracle WebLogic’s application infrastructure which can affect the availability and performance of IT environments where WebLogic is running.
Oracle WebLogic is a Java platform used for developing, deploying, and integrating large-scale enterprise applications. It provides the foundation for application grid, an approach to middleware infrastructure that allows a set of applications to meet peak demand and improve overall performance by sharing resources. It also allows for rapid application deployment and automated dynamic adjustments. The Oracle WebLogic application server features scalable systems that enable IT to change as a business grows, with manageability and automation, as well as providing high availability and diagnostic capabilities.
Availability and performance of Oracle WebLogic in the IT environment is critical for providing effective business service. With a unique ability to track the configuration parameters and detect changes and differences, no matter how minute, for Oracle WebLogic, Evolven Comparison allows IT professionals to:
Reduce production outage risk: Increase stability of releases and detect unauthorized changes to prevent outages and high impact incidents
Minimize system downtime: Quickly pinpoint to an incident's root-cause and cut time to repair
Enhance security & compliance: Leverage granular visibility and audit-trail to meet demanding security and compliance requirements
The configuration parameters of Oracle WebLogic are critical for providing effective business service. Accurately managing the configuration of Oracle WebLogic is not an easy task considering its complexity and the numerous configuration parameters involved with the application. Oracle WebLogic includes thousands of different configuration parameters in which the misconfiguration or disregard of a single configuration setting can cause an incident with major impact on the entire IT environment and business service.
Evolven Comparison discovers granular configuration information for Oracle WebLogic. Evolven Comparison's unique Comparison Engine™ includes a set of technologies that deliver clear, definitive configuration information related to WebLogic, highlighting the critical root cause and its impact, allowing IT professionals to focus on what matters most.
Today’s modern business systems include interdependent layers of applications and infrastructure, and focusing on only one configuration or a small set leaves room for error, and ignores critical context and interdependencies. The Evolven Granular Configuration Automation solution, Evolven Comparison, focuses on the entire environment in order to ensure a stable business service that meets agreed to service levels.
Evolven Comparison analyzes and classifies configuration changes and differences, by their impact, for Oracle WebLogic. Then Evolven Comparison prioritizes and highlights the changes and differences discovered in WebLogic based on criticality, visually presenting the comparison results for fast and easy analysis. Insignificant changes and differences are ignored. Evolven Comparison even makes effective comparisons for Oracle WebLogic Configurations of inherently different environments (e.g. test vs. production).
