Comparing Configuration Management Tools?

Orca: Unique OpsDev solution that delivers application-centric configuration management. Quick learning curve and fast time to value.

  • Options for Middleware or Database Configuration Automation and Configuration Drift Detection
  • Centrally secure, control and bulk-deploy application, database, schema and middleware changes at enterprise scale while enforcing compliance.
  • Automatically detect and correct application, database, and middleware configuration drift.
  • Automatically provide <a ” href=””>compliance audit trails indicating the nature, timing, locations and approvers behind each change.
  • Cut ‘fire drills’ and eliminate risks inherent in open source code, manual scripting and directly accessing servers.

Most new DevOps management tools are Linux-focused. Orca offers unique capabilities for Windows, AIX, and Linux. Orca provides robust, extensively tested interfaces to your business critical applications, middleware and databases.

Most configuration management tools focus on the server and the OS.

Orca is different. Orca is focused where you’re focused, on your applications, middleware, databases, and supporting OS configurations.

without relying on manual processes.

Save IT Ops time and hassle in building and maintaining cumbersome configuration tools and processes.

No “black box”. Multiple ways to pre-validate configuration changes before you run them including preview, “dry run” and interface editing capabilities.

How Orca Works: Summary

Orca’s Configuration Normalization Engine (CNE) secures, simplifies and automates change control.

The CNE normalizes and centralizes dynamic and file-based configurations.
The output is a human-friendly format that provides customizable views of drift:

1) gold master,
2) reference point

Quickly apply changes from a central console to thousands of servers.

This Configuration Normalization Engine makes drift highly visible in a single pane of glass and helps you control where, when and how changes are deployed.




The Orca Configuration Normalization Engine has built-in integrations to important middleware, databases and operating systems.
