- Report on any anomalies
Secure Self-Service Configuration Management
Provide developers and QA teams with the ability to manage their own middleware environments
Many organizations need their developers and QA teams to be able to manage their own messaging queues and messages.
This provides faster time-to-market (TTM) for updates and new applications, and ensures adherence to governance and compliance policies.
To deliver this Nastel provides the ability for the middleware administration team to setup privacy and security to allow each developer or team access to just their own queues.
Support For All Form Factors of IBM MQ
The Nastel Platform supports all form factors of IBM MQ including on-premises software, cloud-hosted, containerized, and the IBM MQ Appliance.
- The Nastel software can work with a local agent or agentless. In the case of the appliance, the agentless mode is used to provide access to all the MQ metrics and management.
- Traditionally MQ experts know all about queues and channels and the details of MQ. The hardware that it runs on is supported by infrastructure specialists who know about power usage, fan speeds, networking, etc. In the case of the appliance, the two are combined, so the MQ support people also need to be aware of the infrastructure monitoring. The Nastel Platform collects this additional detail and puts it all into a single view with explanatory help to empower the MQ administrators to support the complete appliance.
