Opsware’s Server Automation System 6.5 now supports PowerShell. Here is what they say:
Microsoft Windows PowerShell integration. Server Automation System 6.5’s powerful data model is now extended to integrate Microsoft Windows PowerShell, a command line shell and scripting language, to help Windows administrators achieve a higher level of productivity. Any information about a server that is managed by the Opsware System is now accessible directly from within PowerShell. Examples include the history for every job run on a Windows server, or what applications are being supported by the server. With this integration now the latest Windows technology can be used to access the right information that has been automatically stored in the Opsware System for change execution.

I haven’t seen what they are releasing but quite some time ago (we were still Monad then), the Opsware team came to Redmond to show us what they had done with PowerShell. People’s jaws dropped when they saw what the prototype. It was clear that these guys understood the problem and understood how to use PowerShell. It was simply amazing! A lot of people were able to connect the dots when they saw the Opsware demo.
I don’t know what they are shipping but I certainly hope they put a screen capture demo on the web.
I said it before, I’ll say it again: This train keeps gathering steam! SNOOPY DANCE!
