Maxava Now Selling IBM i Monitor Through Apples iTunes Store
October 11, 2011 Alex Woodie
Any IBM i shop can now get Maxava maxView Lite free of charge from Apple‘s iTunes App Store, the company announced last week. The software provides real-time monitoring of IBM i server status, and doesn’t require a Maxava high availability product.
maxView Lite is a version of the full maxView product that Maxava develops to provide monitoring and management of IBM i server and HA systems. maxView Lite provides a Web browser-based GUI console that shows the status of key IBM i server performance metrics, including CPU and ASP utilization, and WRKSYSSTS- and WRKSACTJOB-related information.
maxView Lite is also available as a Web app for Blackberry and Android devices and as a desktop client for PCs and Macs. Maxava (formerly Maximum Availability) claims this is the first application of its type to be offered through Apple’s popular App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices.
“We are now making it even easier for users to quickly and conveniently download the maxView Lite app directly to their iPhone or iPad, underscoring our commitment to delivering solutions that are equally accessible to large enterprise users and SMBs,” Maxava CEO Allan Campbell says in a press release.
Maxava develops two other maxView products that provide HA-related functionality. maxView Monitor shows the status of HA replication and failover readiness, while maxView Manager adds the capability to actively monitor the Maxava HA Enterprise+ environment.
maxView Lite version 1.0 is available now. The software requires iOS version 4.0 or higher, and supports iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. For more information, see www.maxava.com or www.apple.com/itunes/.
