Leveraging Attune for PowerOn Fusion
Attune is production and reducing support time, cost and complexity in managing PowerOn Fusion environments for several utilities.
Herein outlines how.
Attunes built in scheduler centralises schedule management across multiple server xenvironments. Attunes
architecture eliminates the need to maintain identical scrips on multiple server.Used for dataset backups, event/histan archiving, TCS customer update, fast index and more.
Attune has successfully been used for PowerOn Fusion upgrade cutovers where it took the old system datacut, restored it to the new servers in parallel, performed the GE upgrade steps and applied utility specific customisations and fixes.
Attune has empowered support teams by streamlining the dataset upgrade work load. Any team member can kick off a dataset refresh, have lunch and start working with the latest data when they get back.
The Attune dashboard provides non-privileged user access to run procedures such as start/stop enmac or perform a dataset refresh from the latest production backup.
Users can only see the dashboard and run permitted procedures with a single click, providing an opportunity to restrict server access and credential sharing even further.
The dashboard is best suited for providing test/dev environments for other business teams, giving them the ability to refresh their own environments on demand.
Procedures are created in Attune to apply Oracle and Linux patches. These procedures are developed and tested against dev environments, then exported into an archive which includes all the patch files.
This one file that contains the patch files and the procedure to apply them can then be dropped into another Attune server and applied to another environment.
Synerty has developed Attune procedures to build
from fresh operating systems.Significant benefits include, consistency, speed and knowledge capture.
Using Attune inherently captures and centralises your support teams knowledge and and dependent archives required to perform a server side task. Once configured, every team member gains the ability to run a procedure quickly and proficiently.
Attune is a fully configurable procedure automation and knowledge capture system. A procedure is a list of steps to perform, such as deploy an archive, or run a script. Procedures have placeholders that make them reusable.One procedure can be executed on multiple servers with out change. Attune procedures can be exported to a document, or exported/imported to other Attune servers.
