Addison, TX (PRWEB) December 12, 2006
LANrev LP today released LANrev 4.0, a major update to the all-in-one lifecycle management software for heterogeneous networks. LANrev 4.0 adds to the industry-leading LANrev cross-platform architecture several new features; most notably LANrev InstallEase-an exclusive feature for Mac OS X that generates packages, filters, and validates data, creates uninstaller packages, and outputs in multiple formats. Other notable features include Active Directory integration, LANrev TheftTrack, advanced license purchase management, and advanced battery information management. LANrev is a Universal Application and runs natively on both Intel and PowerPC based Mac computers.
"LANrev's unparalleled cross-platform architecture combined with Apple's blazingly fast new Intel -based Macs enable large corporate, government and educational institutions to gain unprecedented performance and flexibility in their desktop environment," said Peter Frankl, founder and COO of LANrev LP. "LANrev 4.0 facilitates the management of large, multi-platform desktop environments with support for the latest server technology including Mac OS X Server and Apple's industry-leading Xserve."
"Apple's new Intel-based Macs have never offered better performance, so thousands of developers have joined LANrev in creating Universal applications for the Mac." said Ron Okamoto, Apple's Vice President of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We are thrilled to see LANrev's newest enhancements continue to leverage Apple's latest hardware and OS technology to provide superior client management in multi-platform environments."
LANrev 4.0 adds new features to LANrev's already expansive array of high performance lifecycle management tools including software distribution, license management, patch management, remote management, asset inventory, usage management, and LANrev's innovative ImageLive disk imaging for Mac OS X.
Managing Macintosh and Windows clients in an Active Directory (AD) environment has never been easier. Now administrators can leverage existing AD user accounts to build a LANrev admin hierarchy and use the Organizational Unit (OU) structure to organize groups for software distribution and licensing as well as other support tasks. LANrev's initial deployment can also be done via existing AD computer OU's.
LANrev 4.0 innovations include:
-LANrev InstallEase -- an innovative packaging and snapshot tool for Mac OS X.
-Active Directory integration -- allows administrators to leverage existing AD infrastructure.
-LANrev TheftTrack -- use LANrev to track and recover stolen laptop and desktop computers.
-License purchase management -- use LANrev to manage purchasing information about your software licenses.
-Battery management -- manage important information about your laptop batteries including status, capacity, percentage of original capacity, and load cycles.
