Manta Technologies Adds IBM Director Navigator for i5/OS Course
August 4, 2008 Timothy Prickett Morgan
This month, i platform training specialist Manta Technologies announced a new course to keep system administrators abreast of the latest software available from IBM for the System i and Power System i servers running i5/OS V5R4 and i 6.1.
The new course, called Using IBM Systems Director Navigator for i5/OS, which teaches system admins to use the new Web console management tool for the i platform, which is similar to but different from the System i Navigator admin client that Big Blue has peddled for the past several years. This Web console is going to eventually replace System i Navigator, so sooner or later System i and Power Systems i admins are going to have to learn this new tool. As with other Manta courses, you can get Using IBM Systems Director Navigator for i5/OS two ways: on a CD that runs on your own PC, which costs $179, for a single user perpetual license or through the MantaNow online system for $110 for a year for a single user. Customers who have bought Manta’s entire System i Training Library will get the new course automatically, and it will also be available in the Operations and System Administration Combination Packs sold by Manta.
By the way, IT Jungle is a distributor of Manta’s products and if you call us at 212-942-5818, we can place an order for you and get a modest commission on the sale, which helps keep the lights, phones, and servers on around here. And when Manta does its big fall sale in two months, we will be telling you all about that, too, and hope you will order through us then as well.
