IBM Sterling Control Center Director - Remotely Manage MFT Nodes
Operate your MFT environment with efficiency
The ability to remotely schedule and deploy updates, patches and fixes helps to liberate your MFT operations teams from many of the labor-intensive duties required when managing a large or geographically dispersed MFT environment. Instead, with Control Center Director, updates, patches and fixes can be applied as scheduled jobs to apply the changes during a predefined maintenance window or during non-essential business hours.
Using IBM Sterling Control Center Director, administrators can download the available Connect: Direct packages and make them available to users in the solution. Within a few clicks, the updates are scheduled. Users and admins can then easily track the status of jobs and see which are complete. Jobs can even be put on hold to avoid conflicts with other processes—all from a central console.
Connect: Direct servers can be updated individually, or organized into server groups. Control Center Director makes it faster and easier to update and configure Connect: Direct nodes. It allows you to centrally track all jobs, providing visibility across all maintenance activities taking place in the network. With Control Center Director, you can now efficiently deploy, update and track Connect: Direct nodes so that no file transfer endpoint or node is left vulnerable.
