BridgeWays Management Packs for SCOM

Finally! Xandros has announced the betaprogram for their BridgeWays Management Packs for SCOM.
With these MPs one can monitor non-Microsoft Enterprise applications like:

01 VMware,
02 PostgresSQL
03 Apache Tomcat
05 Oracle
06 IBM Websphere
07 MySQL
08 Apache
09 PostFix
10 DB2
11 Blackberry

Want to know more or even to participate in their Beta program? Look here.

Unique about it is the cooperation between Microsoft & Xandros. So these MPs should integrate tightly into SCOM. I have seen some demo's at TechEd Barcelona and it certainly looks good. No more crappy software like others (SNMP based!) which polutes the SCOM enviroment with a load of messages without any real meaning nor quality.

Novell has also setup this kind of cooperation with Microsoft and they will also deliver hig quality MPs for monitoring non-Microsoft Enterprise applications.

Al these products will make SCOM more heterogeneous, especially SCOM R2.
