Arula Systems, a Hewlett-Packard spinoff company that develops equipment for remotely managing servers and other devices, will introduce next week two new products aimed at Web hosting and data center customers. The company's products allow a user to remotely turn a server on or off, among other functions. Arula's new Dominion x1 and Cerebus x16 will begin shipping May 29. The two products are the company's first to incorporate its UAP-IT management software, which allows custom scripts to be written to notify network personnel when a server or other device is not working properly--among other features.
Arula, which claims major Web hosting firm Exodus Communications among its customers, is targeting the market for hosting companies and managed service providers, which install, monitor and maintain servers and other Internet gear for businesses. Arula offers similar features to NOCPulse, among many other start-ups targeting the hosting market.
