[prMac.com] 360Works, one of the foremost FileMaker product developers formally announces their newest creation, AdminAnywhere (v1.03), a tool that enables remote, reliable and user-friendly administration for FileMaker Server 8 or 9. Specifically built and optimized for mobile devices such as the iPhone, Treo, or similar, the tool bridges the lines of communication between the server and the ability to remotely administer to its needs, anywhere in the world (with internet access).
Jesse Barnum, President of 360Works provided this insight: "With the mobile devices gaining huge traction in the marketplace, the timing seemed perfect to launch a product that allowed FileMaker server support personnel to unchain themselves from their desks. With AdminAnywhere, you can be alerted and fix FileMaker server-based issues on-the-fly. All we've done is place the tools typically available to you on your laptop or desktop, in the palm of your hand. Not that we recommend administering a database while skiing down a mountain in Colorado, but it can be done just as easily as if you were sitting in your office chair staring at the monitor - just with a bit more excitement, of course."
AdminAnywhere provides full access from any internet connected device. Requiring no localized downloads of plug-ins or executables; the interface is quick, easy and fully functional from any available internet browser. AdminAnywhere provides FileMaker administrators the ability to manage tasks ranging from the mission critical to the simply curious without compromising quality, functionality or location. The easy installation and comprehensive set of features (highlighted below), outline the product's capabilities:
Quick & Easy Installation:
* Installs in minutes - just drop it in your server extensions folder and enable it
* View Server Information
* View FileMaker Logs (not available on Windows FileMaker Server 8)
* View Schedules, run immediate backups
* View all databases and their details, including accounts logged-in
* Send messages to connected users
* Close, open or pause databases
* View current accounts logged-in, including their contact details
* Send messages and/or alerts to connected users
* Disconnect any user logged-in
Jesse Barnum adds: "The 360Works team prides itself on the fact that as an administrator you can count on AdminAnywhere to offer the same rich functionality whether you're using your iPhone or at your desk. There is no watered-down featured set, you can rely on AdminAnywhere to remain consistent no matter where it's being accessed. Since it's a 'bookmarkable' URL and keychain-compatible, opening and closing databases take only three clicks and about five seconds. You're able to administer multiple servers with a simply click on a separate browser tab - it's just that easy.
It was our goal to take the notion of remote FileMaker server administration to the next level, providing a powerful product in a straightforward, uncomplicated package. We believe AdminAnywhere does just that."
