June 22, 2006 – HP Software Forum, Miami, Florida, USA: HERMES SoftLab has today announced SMART Plug-in (SPI) for Microsoft Terminal Server, a thin-client management product on an HP OpenView Operations platform.
The new SPI provides proactive management of Terminal Server environments and is the latest addition in a series of ‘best-in-class’ management solutions from HERMES SoftLab. The Terminal Server SPI provides real end-to-end management for applications deployed with Terminal Servers, reducing risk and helping realize full application potential.
Peter Testen, CEO of HERMES SoftLab said: “SPI for Microsoft Terminal Server is a natural extension of our HERMES SoftLab management solutions for server based computing environments. Complementing the SPI for Citrix, the Terminal Server SPI delivers essential management capability for thin-client deployments − providing non-stop availability and scalability. As a result, users will see an immediate impact on business service levels across all elements of the application delivery chain. This product helps organizations deliver on the promise of lower total cost of ownership (TCO) with server-based computing.”
SPI for Terminal Server is compatible with Microsoft Terminal Server / License Server running on Windows 2000/2003 Server family, HP OV Operations for Windows 7.21/7.50, HP OV Operations for Unix 7.1x/8.1x/8.20, HP OV Reporter 3.5/3.6, and HP OV Performance Manager 5.0/6.0.
