SiteMaestro: A New System and Network Monitoring Tool Released By T3 Software Builders

Nov 29, 2000, 00:00 ET from T3 Software Builders, Inc.

    ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- T3 Software Builders, Inc.
 announced today the release of its newest software product -- SiteMaestro --
 which system administrators are hailing as "the first tool developed by system
 administrators for system administrators."
     "SiteMaestro was developed by T3 engineers in response to customer
 requests for an easy-to-use, reliable and cost-effective way to monitor their
 computer systems and networks using a web browser," said Lawrence H. Hinden,
 president of T3 Software Builders.  "The feedback from customers has been
 extremely positive."
     "The feature of SiteMaestro that system administrators appreciate most,"
 said Rick Bentley, T3's Chief Technology Officer, "is the alarming.
 SiteMaestro is designed to notify an administrator of any system problem by e-
 mail or a wireless messaging device such as a PDA, pager or cell phone --
 giving the administrator time to try to fix the problem before any damage is
 done or time is lost."  "Compared to other available monitoring tools,"
 Bentley noted, "SiteMaestro is very fast, stable and efficient -- unlike most
 of the shareware that's out there.  It's also less cumbersome and less
 expensive than those supposedly high-end tools whose elaborate features are
 never even used."
     Said Chief Software Architect, Scott Ortel, "The challenge was to provide
 administrators with easy access to their systems through any web browser,
 without the need to change their existing corporate network infrastructure."
     The Systems Operations Manager of a Fortune 10 Communications Company, one
 of the first SiteMaestro customers, explained the great utility of the
 SiteMaestro tool this way: "With ease of configuration and web-based access,
 SiteMaestro has allowed me to provide 24x7 production support for over 300 Sun
 and NT systems with a team of only nine employees.  The simple integration of
 existing homegrown software has allowed me to quickly integrate SiteMaestro
 into our production environment.  SiteMaestro has allowed me to minimize
 personnel costs while enhancing my ability to provide out-of-hours support
 from anywhere in the world ... "
     SiteMaestro Professional agents are available for Sun Solaris, Windows
 NT/2000 and Linux.  Soon to be available is SiteMaestro Enterprise, which will
 provide a central repository of telemetry agent data for trend analysis and
 centralized management capabilities.

     Systems administrators can see a demonstration of SiteMaestro at the
 Virginia Technology Expo, November 29 through December 1, 2000, to be held at
 the Capital Expo Center, Booth 1029 and at the Maryland Technology Showcase,
 December 6 and 7, 2000, to be held at the Baltimore Convention Center, Booth
 956.  All administrators and interested parties are encouraged to stop by and
