Attune Product

Attune Features

Simple Automation

Attune is the simplest way to automate repetitive tasks.

Built in Scheduler

A built in, scheduler allows central management of scheduled tasks from one location.

No longer will scripts have to be copied out to each server and scheduled individually.

Cross Platform

Attune’s automation runs scripts and deploy files to both windows and linux environments.

Centralised Archives

Attune supports storing, maintaining and deploying archives as part of it’s automation.

Archives can be installers, configuration files, data or any other files.

Archives + Scripts provides a well-rounded solution.

Secured Self Help

Allow users to complete their own tasks. Simply setup a job, and publish it on the users dashboard.

Users can run job at their own leisure, reducing load on project provisioning teams.

Documented Procedures

Build complex Attune procedures by chaining many simple scripts together.

Procedures can be exported to file, then imported to other Attune instances.

Procedures can be exported as documentation, which can be shared, or used for Quality Assured planning.

Reusable Procedures

Attune has variables, used to create reusable procedures.

Variables take the place of servers, strings, passwords, usernames and more.

Reusable procedures reduces time and effort, and improve quality assurance.

Support

Attune is a fully configured virtual appliance, ready for quick and easy deployment onto VMWare or compatible infrastructure.

The yearly support subscription includes access to product security and functionality updates, and access to the Synerty product support team.

Synerty offers consultancy and training services which can be used to setup and configure Attune and help new clients get the most out of Attune.

The (“Synerty Product Licence Agreement”) applies to the use of Synerty Attune. See the (“Synerty Support Policy”) for further support details.

Attune Use Cases

Attune is used for mission critical applications for both projects and ongoing server support.

Full Integration Lifecycle

Attune's Servers

Attune has successfully been configured to build and integrate Linux + Oracle + Windows environments, such as GE’s mission critical PowerOn Fusion Electricity DMS.

The builds include patching the Redhat Enterprise Linux, configuring OS services such as NTP and sendmail, installing oracle clients, oracle databases and creating oracle database instances.

Using Attune to provision servers ensures that the precise install procedure and knowledge is captured. This is then available to the team for the next upgrade even if the technical lead moves on.

Using Attune ensures all servers are configured consistently, avoiding nasty surprises, during partial system outages or failovers.

Attune is very effective at reducing the effort required to build, upgrade and maintain the large number of servers modern information systems need for redundancy, training and development purposes.

Take Backups

Using Attune to run backup processes provides excellent success/failure monitoring and incredibly easy debugging.

Attune has a built in scheduler that coordinates backup tasks across multiple servers and multiple users. When a procedure is executed in Attune, the logs from each step is captured and each step is checked for failure. Attune will catch any failure, stop the execution and notify support teams.

Attune makes it easy for other team members to step in and fix or maintain backups.

Load Datasets

Electricity utilities have automated their dev environment refreshes with Attune. With Attune anyone in the team can kick off a dev environment restore with out being intimately familiar with the procedure.

A dataset load is the process of taking a production environment backup and loading it onto a dev, test or training environment. This ensures the dev environment is in the same state as the production environment is, allowing more accurate testing.

With Attune, the senior team members create a procedure to perform the dataset load. Once created, any team member can kick off their own dataset load, the process is much faster, and it can have more customisations. This frees up the senior team members to carry on with other work, or even go on leave.

Apply Patches

Attune’s procedures are re-usable, they contain placeholders that are populated for servers they are applied to. Patch deployment procedures are developed against dev environments, the patches are tested, then the deployment procedure is executed on production. Because of the placeholders, the procedure requires no modification to be applied to production.

Attune’s automation allows server administrators to easily scale out deployment of patches, saving precious time. Automation eliminates the risk of human error which increases as the server count increases.

Using Attune to deploy patches makes sense. Attune stores a repository of archives. A new archive is created for each patch set needing install, followed by the deployment and post patch changes steps. The archive and procedure can be applied over and over again, for testing or production deployment.

Change Testing

Production environment changes cause a majority of system instability issues.

Changes are required for many reasons, including :

Patch security issues, Patch bugs, Update configurations

Attune allows admins to spend less time implementing changes and more time where it counts, testing.

With the power of Attune at their fingers, admins have the time and opportunity to better test changes. Attune procedures can be rolled out to multiple servers exactly as they are tested, with out changes to point to different servers or environments.

Using Attune with virtual test environments is the ultimate setup. Virtual machines are rolled back to a snapshot in seconds, Then Attune rolls out changes to test equally as fast.

Scheduled Tasks

Centrally managed scheduled tasks using scheduled tasks in Attune streamlines the support of server scheduled tasks.

Attune changes the architecture of server scheduled tasks, from being configured and maintained on every server to centrally managed and centrally supported on the Attune server. Reducing support effort and complexity.

Many servers have maintenance tasks setup, such as run a batch file to purge old logs. Leveraging Attune’s procedures, the batch file previously duplicated on every server is replaced by a single procedure in Attune.

Attune’s scheduler is able to coordinate scheduled tasks across multiple servers. For example, a resource intensive archiving task can be staggered on all the servers in a replication group. Attune is aware of when one completes and then starts the next.
