GridApp offers multi-platform configuration management

GridApp has taken the wraps off its new Configuration Management Database.

GridApp Systems Inc. has updated its Clarity software suite with a new component designed to let DBAs manage application configuration information in multi-platform database environments.

The New York City-based GridApp says its new Configuration Management Database (CMDB) can serve as the foundation for a "federated" or multi-tiered infrastructure by base-lining configurations, auditing user activity and instituting management processes and security controls at the database level.

"The lack of change control and configuration management for the database tier is a direct cause of downtime and loss of revenue," GridApp president and CEO Robert Gardos said in a statement.

Released last fall, GridApp's Clarity software enables DBAs to discover and inventory database versions and patch levels; track database configuration; provision database resources to meet business service level agreements; clone databases for product testing; repair faults in databases; and deploy patches.

Gardos has said that what differentiates Clarity from competing software offered by the likes of BMC Software Inc., Embarcadero Technologies Inc. and Quest Software Inc. is its focus on heterogeneous deployments.
