High Availability in Workload Automation

When designing a software system, the possibility of long-term downtime—due to hardware, operating system, or software failure—often gets neglected. For workload automation software, ensuring high availability by having a single point of control for the scheduling and setup of your enterprise workload can be a distinct advantage, ensuring that your software system stays available to its users even when there are hardware or software problems. Beyond system failure and data protection, workload automation solutions can also minimize the risks that result from process chains, manual input, or undocumented dependencies. Read this white paper to learn more about the importance of high availability in automation.

Workload Automation: The Key to Managing Windows Server Sprawl

Many companies use data centers running processes across multiple Windows servers using built-in schedulers instead of automating nightly batch streams on a mainframe. Simple schedulers work well on individual servers with only a handful of tasks, but scheduling becomes more difficult once you include dependencies, such as incoming files, the behavior of other applications, or the completion of business processes on other servers. Workload automation using a job scheduling system can save money... Read More
