In my presentation, 'Healing your infrastructure' at the Gartner Data Center event this week I highlighted 2 new Autonomic computing technologies that made their debut yesterday on http://www.ibm.com/alphaworks.
The first technology, IBM Autonomic Integrated Development Environment (AIDE) , is a preview of the Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM) spec recently ratified by OASIS. The second technology, IBM Autonomic Task Manager for Administrators (ATMA) uses a spreadsheet approach to manage autonomic computing administrator tasks and uses WSDM to communicate with managed resources and display the status in a spreadsheet oriented UI.
AIDE is a set of tools for creating WSDM compliant interfaces for managed resources to assist in deploying WSDM enabled solutions. AIDE also includes examples of WSDM endpoint enablement of IBM Cloudscape open source database and the IBM Log and Trace Analyzer. In addition there is an example of WSDM working with the Weather Station interoperability demo.
ATMA is a spreadsheet-based tool development environment for administrators that helps system administrators develop their scripts without requiring in-depth programming skills. ATMA uses WSDM to communicate with managed resources and display the status in a spreadsheet oriented UI.
WSDM is a Web services standard that lets you plug any resource into any management application enabling seamless management of HW/SW resources in heterogeneous environments. This provides a scalable, common approach for management of existing systems and SOA-based systems. Today there are over 30 IBM products and 30 Business Partner products that support our initial implementation of the WSDM event format.
