Testing the strength of today's applications
MOM's the word
Alliance Atlantis Communications Inc. has servers and networks spread across multiple continents, the majority running Windows 2000 or 2003, with a few Unix boxes and IBM AS/400s. The Toronto-based entertainment company recently moved to Microsoft Corp.'s Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) to monitor all servers except the AS/400s, says John Kemp, director of computer operations and infrastructure. Operators still monitor the AS/400s locally using internal monitoring tools. Kemp hopes to tie them in with MOM next year.
