  • Fujitsu, 2 Others to Use Intel's New Server Management Software
  • September 29, 1998 (TOKYO) -- Fujitsu Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corp. and Hitachi Ltd. said they will adopt Intel K.K.'s management software for PC servers, while other major server vendors have yet to decide whether to use the software.
    Intel K.K. shipped on Sept. 9 a new version of the software including Intel LANDesk Server Manager version 6.0 server management software, and Emergency Management Card (EMC), a card for server management.

    Both products will allow for unified management of PC servers made by various manufacturers. Intel aims to take advantage of the feature to promote the products.

    Yet only three makers have announced that they will adopt the new products.

    Fujitsu and Mitsubishi Electric will feature LANDesk Server Manager for their servers as standard because they do not have comparable products. The two manufacturers plan to provide the EMC as an option.

    Hitachi will enable its customers to use functions of LANDesk Server Manager via the graphical user interface (GUI) of its own server management software.

    Meanwhile, IBM Japan Ltd. and Compaq Computer K.K. of Japan have apparently not yet decided on the introduction of the server management kit.

    NEC Corp. said it will utilize only its own comparable products. Its users can report to its user supervision center automatically, in case of any server failures, by combining remote access capabilities of its PC server Express5800 and its dedicated management software ESMPRO.

    Because each company has developed its own system to prevent trouble involving PC servers, it is not clear how widely Intel's management products will be utilized.
