op5 Releases a New Generation of Downloadable Products for Modern IT Control
The leading OSM - open source management - company op5 announces the launch of new versions of two of its three main products for control of IT systems and networks. Radically improved user friendliness, direct download as a compliment to the current appliance solution, and functions specifically targeted to speed up configuration are some of the new key features. Together with the recently launched subscription-based licensing model, the new functions enable users to get their OSM systems up and running in a short time frame.
op5 releases completely new versions of two of its three main products for open source management on October 15th.
The new product versions are called op5 Monitor 3.2 and op5 LogServer 2.0. Key features:
- Freedom of choice between op5's appliance or the client's own hardware.
- Greater freedom of choice regarding operative systems, hardware, support and service.
- All products are now available for direct download, both as software packages that the customers install themselves on their own hardware, and as packages prepared to be run directly in vmware.
- The tools have been adapted to facilitate and speed up configuration.
- op5 has added value and packaging to make the underlying software Nagios very user friendly.
- All products are available in trial versions.
"It is a well known fact that software based on open source is more cost efficient and flexible for customers than ‘closed' software. We have in our new product versions really focused on user friendliness since we see it as the single most important feature", said Jan Josephson, Head of Business Development, op5. "Ease of use, or the lack of it, is probably the single costliest part of any system's total cost of ownership (TCO). This is especially true for the NMS (Network Management System) sector of the industry."

New Subscription-Based Licensing Model
op5 recently launched a subscription-based licensing model called op5 Network Management Suite. op5 Network Management Suite enables customers to easily and cost-efficiently subscribe to professional systems for monitoring, statistics and logg handling, including e.g. service and support.

Clients get an improved capability to budget the costs and to directly and easily find out what the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a system really will be over one, two or three years. Everything (i.e. access to new releases, support, service etc) is included in a fixed price.
