[prMac.com] Addison, TX - November 12, 2007 - LANrev LP today announced LANrev 4.6, a major update to the all-in-one lifecycle management software for heterogeneous networks. LANrev 4.6 adds to the industry-leading LANrev cross-platform architecture several new features, most notably Mac OS X Leopard support and Time Machine integration that facilitates its use in network environments.
"LANrev enables Leopard's brilliant new Time Machine feature to be leveraged across the enterprise network," said Peter Frankl, founder and COO of LANrev LP. "LANrev's ImageLIve technology and Time Machine provide a new level of enterprise backup automation and efficiency."
"Time Machine makes automatic backup on a Mac effortless," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We are pleased to see Mac developers like LANrev innovate with Leopard to make features like Time Machine even more accessible for users."
LANrev enables network administrators to leverage Time Machine across the enterprise. LANrev can be used to trigger manual backup and restore endpoints without requiring boot up from a different volume or CD before starting the restore. Additionally LANrev centrally retrieves critical Time Machine information network wide. LANrev returns information such as a list of backup snapshots, the amount of free space on the backup volume and other mission critical items.
Before installing software that could have an impact on the stability of clients on the network, admins can now trigger a Time Machine backup right from the LANrev Console, to create a manual backup on the fly. If any problems occur, they can simply roll back the client using the saved backup. Together, LANrev and Time Machine enable an automated and efficient enterprise backup tool, thereby reducing cost and complexity while increasing functionality and support levels. LANrev 4.6 will ship before the end of November.
