Enterprise edition of RiverMuse fault management released
The open source fault management company Rivermuse have announced the availability of RiverMuse ES, an enterprise supported version of the RiverMuse Core, the GPLv3 licensed free software version. Functionally, Core and ES are the same, but ES offers 8/5 support and indemnification.
RiverMuse ES is available as a subscription product and is priced on the basis of number of "Managed objects" (systems, applications on systems or multi-port devices) and prices start at around $13,000 for up to 500 managed objects. According to Paddy Bell, Business Development Director at RiverMuse, the move towards pricing by managed object allows users a greater freedom to distribute their fault management infrastructure within the organisation, placing servers where appropriate.
