RES ONE Automation
RES ONE Automation provides lightweight automation capabilities.
It eliminates the need to manually deliver services and apps, eliminating risk of error, creating a strong audit trail, and freeing up resources for projects with more strategic impact on the business.
Ease of use. Simple yet scalable architecture for automating IT, with extensive out-of-the-box knowledge and integration. Virtually anyone can automate their daily activities with increased control and better security and compliance, laying the foundation for IT as a Service. It's the best way to provision and de-provision services directly for the workforce and for datacenters.
Improve auditability, traceability and change control by tracking version updates. Better manage modules, projects, run books and resources with version numbers.
Advanced job scheduling
With RES ONE Automation, you'll control exactly when changes will be executed in your infrastructure. Execution can be instant, scheduled or recurring at next or every boot. They can also take into account your service windows. Jobs can be scheduled to execute on one or more agents. Jobs can be executed by external systems including RES ONE Service Store, RES ONE Workspace and ServiceNow.
You can easily create reusable modules to enable controlled changes in the infrastructure without the need for admin access. Modules are populated with one or more out-of-the-box tasks to support your way of performing changes.
Advanced run books
IT automation through run books supports more complex changes, where multiple systems are touched and when the sequence of change is important. You can combine multiple modules into a single run book to simplify execution and enable the creation of your own change recipes.
Extensive out-of-the-box knowledge
By using any of the over 200 out-of-the-box tasks you will get started with IT automation quickly and easily. If you already use scripts to manage your environment, these can simply be copied into one of these tasks and put into a module to get you started even quicker.
Delegation of control
RES ONE Automation makes it possible to delegate advanced changes to less skilled IT people. Now you can automate IT and better leverage your entire team for a much broader range of system changes while increasing quality, control and efficiency.
Every module and run book that you create in RES ONE Automation can be exported to building blocks. This allows easy backup of your change configurations and makes it very easy to move the configuration you’ve designed from development, to test and into production. Through the use of parameters, a run book can be reused for multiple purposes by simply entering the custom details at scheduling.
Trust security extends traditional role-based access control (RBAC) by creating relationships between agents and modules/resources. Trust security enables a single admin to securely manage any number of servers without allowing changes meant for one server to be executed on another.
Advanced change control
RES ONE Automation allows you to view and control all current changes in real-time from the single console, as well as the complete change history for every single agent. All changes within the automation framework are audited to easily detect rogue changes in the framework.
In addition to being able to integrate with many data sources, RES offers add-ons that integrate with various third-party technologies, including mobile device management, IT service management, virtualization and cloud provisioning, PC lifecycle management, and SaaS apps. Learn more.
RES ONE Automation Manager architecture
The architecture of RES ONE Automation is easy to install, manage and scale.
RES ONE Automation console
This console is the main IT automation interface. Automate IT tasks and queries by invoking and scheduling them directly from the console. Other RES ONE Automation components can also be pushed from the console.
RES ONE Automation datastore
The datastore is the central database for your RES ONE Automation environment. All dispatchers communicate with the datastore to send information to agents as well as store the results of any tasks. Datastores can be Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and up (including Express), IBM DB2, Oracle and MySQL.
RES ONE Automation dispatcher
The dispatcher is the communication engine behind RES ONE Automation. It directs information flow between the agents (over port 3163) and the database (over the database port). Dispatchers can be chained together to work effectively in different network topologies.
RES ONE Automation master dispatcher
The master dispatcher enables the architecture to be scaled out without increasing bandwidth requirements.
RES ONE Automation agents
The RES ONE Automation agent performs the tasks and queries that were invoked from the console. Agents can run on Windows, Linux or MacOS. All agents connect to a dispatcher to get tasks and resources to automate IT, and to send status updates to the database.
Check out what's in the latest releases of RES ONE Automation.

Manage Add-ons option
Provides an overview of the installed Add-ons in RES ONE Automation, then the ability to delete one or more Add-ons if they are no longer required.
Separation of Add-ons
Third-party connectors have been separated from the RES ONE Automation release cycle for greater agility in the development and release of new connectors.
Solaris 10 and 11 on Intel
Supports the following Operating System for Agents running Unix and Linux: Sun Solaris 10 (update 11) on Intel, Sun Solaris 11 (update 3) on Intel.
SUSE Linux Enterprise
SUSE Linux is a very popular distro, and we have made RES ONE Automation Agents available for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server release 11 SP4 and 12.
RES ONE Automation 2015
RES ONE Automation offers better auditability and change control through versioning. Modules, projects, run books and resources can now be stored with a version number and comment field.
The console has been enhanced with a more intuitive, familiar Microsoft Outlook interface that is easier to navigate. Commonly used console controls will automatically appear at the top of the list. The console is persistent and will remember your last location. Improved group structure has been added: jobs, library, topology, administration, set up.
This console feature has been added for better useability and offers an easily accessible button bar that's visible throughout the console. It contains the most frequently used functions and features. Shortcut keys can also perform actions from the command bar.
Expanded compatibility support
