Athene Cloud and Athene 11 General Availability
The recent release of AtheneTM Cloud and AtheneTM 11 provide exciting new features and capabilities to our clients and open those capabilities to organizations everywhere.
Athene Cloud takes the world-class Athene capacity management software and puts all of the processing and storage in the cloud. This means that organizations can let Syncsort manage their server, the Capacity Management Information System (CMIS, also known as the Athene database), as well as provide key services to organizations that may not have a dedicated Capacity Management function.
Those services might include something as weekly monitoring, upgrade assistance, or training staff in creating key reports. However, organizations can choose to allow Syncsort’s experienced consultants to manage the entire Capacity Management process – from creating assessment reports, to weekly health reports, daily performance monitoring, change impact assessments, and completing a full capacity/business alignment plan.
All organizations, big and small, can benefit from a formal Capacity Management process and the use of Athene – now organizations without dedicated teams and available resources can team with Syncsort to provide that service.
The Athene 11 release adds additional functionality, including full support for IBM i, using direct DB2 database connections to capture capacity and performance data. IBM i is a key platform used in over 100,000 organizations worldwide and managing the performance and capacity of services that rely on IBM i is key for those organizations.
Athene ServiceView, a reporting and analysis tool that provides key time-to-live information to capacity managers, has been enhanced to include more targets and the ability to span multiple CMIS.
The new Concentrator Control Center is a PCI-compliant store-and-forward node for data that improves security and underpins Athene Cloud.
Other enhancements include enhanced portal dashboard reporting and significant performance improvements in Data Management, VMware data processing, and ServiceView calculation and report generation.
