SYSGEM FILE SYNCHRONIZER
Sysgem File Synchronizer offers a centralized solution for automated, distributed (configuration) file management supporting UNIX/Linux and OpenVMS among other platforms while guaranteeing accountability with a full audit trail.
As part of the Sysgem Enterprise Manager (SEM) software suite, the functionality of Sysgem File Synchronizer (SFiS) can be integrated with other SEM application modules to enable its comprehensive system management toolset across your organization’s entire IT environment.
Sysgem File Synchronizer (SFiS) runs interactively, and now also runs in background mode, monitoring, updating and/or reporting on text files on target UNIX / Linux systems.
Coming soon … the same background mode feature on Windows and OpenVMS.
Sysgem File Synchronizer (SFiS) provides a complete and secure environment to build a central store, automated synchronization and backup of source (configuration definition) files which automates the distribution and continuous synchronization of target configuration files across all connected machines.
Server-specific differences in configuration files on separate systems while enforcing corporate policies accordingly can easily be managed from one single centralizing screen.
Change Management & Version Control
Centralize configuration files at source in the SFiS source file repository
Flexibly control, manage and compare server-specific file variants, changes and updates to configuration files across the network from a central location
Enforce corporate policies across the network whereby integrated shell commands embedded in the source files add flexibility to customer- or server-specific updates (pre- and post-processing)
While all changes are recorded in the audit log, all generations of source files are retained in an archive folder where previous versions can be viewed and restored
File Distribution & Deployment
Access Control & Delegation
Ensure a centralized and protected depository of source configuration definition files for automated backup management; automatically detect and view all conflicts between file instances across network
Control and configure the distribution and deployment of target files with intelligent displays of discrepancies between the central source definition and target file and synchronization of updates with a single click.
Synchronization can also be automated and scheduled with pre-set safeguarding settings as a Service Display
Access to the central repository, SFiS and all individual features can be controlled per user according to privilege levels
Centralized & Automated Monitoring
Intelligent Alarms & Reporting
Integrity Control, Accountability & Audit Trail
Set up automated monitoring protocols with integrated reporting, intelligent alarm and real-time alerts functionality to streamline and ensure the integrity of distributed (configuration) files across the network
Record all actions taken by individual users to source files or target systems in a central audit trail database whereby all past events can be reviewed, analyzed and included in reports in the integrated SFiS audit browser
