ORLANDO, Fla. -- Opsware Inc. (Nasdaq:OPSW - News), the leading provider of IT automation and utility computing software, today introduced from Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2005 Opsware's Network Automation System (NAS) 4.5, offering a new set of capabilities for managing the largest and most complex distributed IT environments. Already ranked the best network configuration management solution based on winning all comparative product reviews conducted in 2004 and 2005, NAS 4.5 now provides tighter integration between disparate IT systems and sophisticated automation capabilities that deliver greater control over network management. The advanced capabilities in NAS 4.5 enable customers to reduce costs and maximize efficiencies, while providing an automated infrastructure that eases the management of service-based IT models such as service oriented architectures (SOAs) and utility computing.

As enterprise IT continues to increase in complexity with over 39 million network devices installed worldwide, organizations are demanding a greater level of control and visibility over their network infrastructure. NAS 4.5 builds upon its award-winning capabilities to provide powerful network automation features including intelligent auto-discovery, policy prioritization and risk assessment, a new Web Services API and JMS Connector for quicker and more powerful integrations, and internationalization to support Opsware's growth in Asia Pacific and EMEA. These features deliver superior value to enterprise IT by advancing automation of high priority IT initiatives including compliance, policy management, and improved service quality.

Gartner's Hype Cycle for IT Operations Management report (July 20, 2005) states: "Network device configuration management has primarily been a manual process involving typing commands into vendor-specific command line interfaces or creating homegrown scripts to ease retyping requirements. Little consideration has been given to rigorous change management or disaster recovery rollback processes."
