8 NOV 2010 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leader in enterprise batch job scheduling and workload automation, has released the JAMS PowerPack which incorporates support for PowerGUI, an extensible administrative console for administering and managing Windows systems.
The JAMS PowerPack utilizes many of the cmdlets from the JAMS PowerShell Snap-in to make it even easier to perform common PowerShell actions with JAMS. The PowerPack prompts users for parameters that would otherwise need to be specified at the PowerShell command line.
PowerGUI’s graphical interface makes it easier to perform actions on specific JAMS objects. The PowerPack allows for management of the current schedule, Queues, Triggers, Variables, and Named Times. The file transfer cmdlets are also supported by the PowerPack and will prompt for the necessary parameters. Another benefit is that the PowerPack will only prompt for common parameters such as “Server” once while PowerShell requires the information to be entered each time the command is executed.
Benefits of the PowerPack:
- Utilizes PowerGUI’s interface to manage JAMS Job Scheduler objects easily
- Reduces the need to work directly from the standard PowerShell command line
- PowerGUI’s export features make it even simpler to pull data from JAMS
As one Windows PowerShell expert states, “Workload automation and job scheduling in the enterprise are not trivial tasks. Luckily there are tools out there to help you, and some of them even have PowerShell interfaces. And here comes the best part. One of them, the JAMS Job Scheduler now even has a PowerGUI PowerPack so you can perform advanced bulk management and customize the tool right in the PowerGUI Admin Console!”
