IBM dishes out "Self Managing, Self Healing" tools for Data Center

Or, like Austine proudly talks about covering it in 2003, notes: "autonomic". Or simply (and softly) meaning: Don't need to hire, just wait till yer last sysadmin retires!"

So where's the beef? El Reg has it here:

IBM is adding self-management capabilities to Tivoli Usage and Accounting Manager, Security Operations Manager, Monitoring and Change and Configuration Management Database.

  • Tivoli Usage and Accounting Manager gets tools for resource accounting, cost allocation and chargeback billing based on the resource usage.

  • Tivoli Security Operations Manager receives autonomic add-ons that analyze data from throughout the data center to detect security threats.

  • Tivoli Monitoring gets availability and performance monitoring with diagnostic data and automated corrective actions to boost performance and avoid availability hiccups.

  • Tivoli Change and Configuration Management Database will automatically track information spread across the computer systems in a company, such as details about servers, storage devices, networks, middleware, applications, your children's' names — in order to help the IT staff get a better grip on infrastructure and dependencies.
