SAN JOSE, CA -- July 14, 2003 -- MagniComp today announced the availability of SysInfo[tm] 5.0, its next major version of its popular product for providing IT personnel with comprehensive system information for most major UNIX and Linux platforms. Amoung the many new features in this release, support for Apple's Mac OS X platform has been added bringing SysInfo's unique ability to deliver highly detailed system information to Apple's popular Macintosh line.
"Support for Mac OS X has been our number one customer request for new platform support," said Michael Cooper, President and CTO of MagniComp. "SysInfo's ability to provide deep, normally hidden data to organizations is an invaluable aid to IT organizations supporting Macs."
One significant new feature of 5.0 is a new agent which can provide remote access to all SysInfo data over a standard TCP/IP connection. "The ability to obtain highly detailed system information on a system anywhere in a large enterprise is invaluable to large Fortune 500 companies," said Michael Cooper. "All of our large customers have many thousands of diverse systems dispersed around the world. The new SysInfo agent allows them to instantly query any one of those systems to precisely view nearly any type of system data."
This release adds significant new classes of available data including: the new License Information class reports on Macrovision's FLEXlm software licenses found on a system, the new Network Information class which provides detailed information on a system's network configuration including DNS and NIS, and the new Network Interface class which provides highly detailed information about physical and virtual network interfaces on a system.
"SysInfo's already deep pool of system data is significantly widened by the addition of these new types of system information," said Michael Cooper. "Our customers can now quickly and easily identify what software licenses they have and use that information to optimize license usage to reduce their software costs."
SysInfo 5.0 is now available for download and purchase from www.magnicomp.com. SysInfo will run for evaluation purposes for 60 days with full functionality without purchase. Pricing is based on the number of CPUs in a system and starts at $12 for a system with 1-4 CPUs. Volume and upgrade discounts are available. Pricing subject to change.
