ROC Software provides an easy to use, yet powerful job scheduling solution with ROC Maestro. For environments that involve UNIX®, Linux®, or Windows®, ROC Maestro dramatically simplifies job scheduling administration while expanding your operational reach.
With ROC Maestro, resource constraints are not an issue. Its lightweight, small footprint means you don't need a separate server or large external database to run your cross-platfom job scheduling. What's more, the system's sophisticated GUI makes it easy to use. You'll protect your existing IT investments, ensure smooth automated batch processing, and save valuable administrative time and resources.
The ability to automate and monitor processes based on reusable calendars, events, cross-platform dependencies and reporting is so easy with ROC Maestro. It's all about getting the centralized control and visibility you need without constantly dealing with the subtle differences between platforms and applications.
ROC Maestro consolidates job scheduling across UNIX, Linux, and Windows systems within a very powerful, yet simple interface. This enables IT to easily track and manage schedules, tasks, job status and job history while speeding resolution of problems with flexible error detection and recovery. IT personnel can easily track their schedules of jobs and tasks with ROC Maestro. Job status can be immediately recognized by the display color, while quick views reveal jobs that are active, running, inactive, held, or that require assistance. Remote administration, comprehensive logging and reporting, secure designation of users and groups further enhance the administrator's level of control. It's all built-in to lighten the load on IT, improve response times, and increase service levels.
The systems recovery facility in ROC Maestro ensures that aborted jobs are addressed automatically. After detecting failed jobs, ROC Maestro puts dependent jobs on hold while it initiates any combination of the following recovery actions: alert the operator, run a recovery job, stop processing, rerun the original job, or continue with the next job(s). Maestro also easily incorporates and controls jobs it did not schedule to prevent overloading and conflicts.
Built-in schedulers provided within operating systems, databases, or applications do not offer the centralized control and flexibility required to manage even the small enterprise efficiently. For example, it's expensive to maintain CRON on each and every server. It's a drain for IT to log into machine after machine, sifting through log files and scripts to track tasks that have no centralized scheduling, state or result information.
With limited security, no dependencies, no prerequisites, no recovery from system failure, no auditing or reporting, built-in job schedulers simply do not pass the cost versus benefit analysis. Do you need to integrate processes and monitor and react to events in real time? Built-in schedulers simply do not provide the power you need. With ROC Maestro, your automated batch processing will run with fewer interruptions, reducing the negative impact of downtime on your staff and your systems.
ROC's job scheduler has a small footprint and is easy to install and configure in any UNIX®, Linux®, Windows® or multi-platform environment. ROC Maestro can be up and running quickly, regardless of the number of servers and complexity of environment.
ROC Maestro is currently working with literally thousands of custom and off-the-shelf enterprise applications including Oracle, Microsoft, SunGard and Ellucian. Check out our official platform compatibility chart to see how ROC works with the most common platforms.
