[prMac.com] Addison, TX - November 28, 2007 - LANrev LP today released 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, including Mac OS X Leopard support, Time Machine integration, new remote control integrations, improvements to LANrev's patent-pending ImageLive disk imaging, and other significant performance enhancements.
"LANrev 4.6 builds upon LANrev's industry-leading feature set to provide world class functionality in managing heterogeneous network environments," said Martin Bestmann, founder and CTO of LANrev LP. "LANrev 4.6 enables full management functionality for the Mac OS X Leopard clients within the multi-platform enterprise."
LANrev 4.6 enables Leopard administrator consoles to take advantage of the new remote control integration within Mac OS X 10.5. This integration offers a world-class remote control tool between clients, without requiring the purchase of any additional software. Administrators can even remote control PCs running a VNC compatible server or host.
LANrev's automated patch management has been updated to include support for Mac OS 10.5 updates. This means LANrev's Software Distribution Center is now able to provide patch management for every major Mac and Windows operating system, including Mac OS 10.3-10.5 and Windows 2000 Professional-Windows Vista.
LANrev's InstallEase boasts new, lighting fast speed, with near instantaneous 'after' snapshot for your packaging tasks.
LANrev empowers 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.
