Data Center Automation Express Edition restructuring to support ITOM's containerized strategy.



Product Structure Change



As of March 6, 2019, Micro Focus introduced a new product structure for Data Center Automation Express Edition.

The new Data Center Automation Express Edition version 2 will provide the following capabilities:

  • Vulnerability Risk Management for Operating Systems
  • Patch Management for Operating Systems
  • Provisioning and Configuration

All features will be delivered through the containerized version of Data Center Automation, as opposed to the old Data Center Automation Express Edition version 1 that offered provisioning features for operating systems, database and middleware through a limited entitlement to Server Automation and Database and Middleware Automation (DMA) Express workflows.

Server Automation limited entitlement and DMA Express are no longer included in Data Center Automation Express Edition version 2.

This program responds to the business strategy to expand the offering to all ITOM suites and align Operations Orchestration to ITOM suites pricing model. 

Accordingly, at the time of next support contract renewal, Micro Focus will replace the Data Center Automation Express Edition version 1 license SKUs on support contracts with the version 2  license SKUs.

This does not involve any form of technical migration or changes to your environment.
