Building the Control-M Infrastructure

by Qiang Ding | January 2013 | Enterprise Articles

Unlike ordinary desktop applications, Control-M is an enterprise-level large-scale batch workload automation platform that handles the execution of end-to-end business processes potentially across the entire organization. Therefore, it is essential to properly plan the batch infrastructure in advance to fully utilize the benefits of Control-M and allow it to fulfill the future growth of the organization's batch needs.

In this article by Qiang Ding, author of BMC Control-M 7: A Journey from Traditional Batch Scheduling to Workload Automation , we are going to look at important factors that need to be taken into consideration for building a complete batch infrastructure. We will start with introducing the "Three Ages" towards workload automation. This will be followed by discussions of pre-implementation-related topics, such as batch environment sizing considerations, choices of high availability solutions, storage space requirements, firewall configuration requirements, user experience-related performance concerns, and so on. Once we have the environment planned, we focus on the technical aspects by building a complete sandpit Control-M batch infrastructure.
