PatchLink.com Releases Gravitix v2.0 Enterprise Edition.
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 27, 2000
PatchLink.com Corp. Monday announced that it will release its Gravitix(TM) v2.0 Enterprise Edition in April.
The latest version will be used in concert with the award-winning, PatchLink.com "IT Super Site" for the automation of patch analysis and distribution. The upgrade is capable of updating all NetWare servers (3.x. 4.x and 5.x) across a complete enterprise LAN or WAN. The application is available as both a stand-alone solution, or as part of WebConsole(R) Management Software.
Gravitix is a Web-based NetWare Loadable Module (NLM) tool that will allow network administrators to automatically connect to a central Web site to download and apply the latest NLM updates and patches to all NetWare file servers on a LAN. Administrators can use any Web browser to access the Gravitix interface and configure, view reports and choose files to update.
Gravitix will also allow administrators to manage the NetWare configuration files (NCF) and update files on the NetWare DOS partition. Gravitix will soon be capable of synchronizing files across, NT, UNIX (Linux and Solaris), Windows 95/98/2000, DOS, and all other platforms that support file transfer protocol.
"Administrators no longer have to worry about manually updating and applying patches to every server. Gravitix will automatically do that for them. This automates file replication over the Internet or an Intranet," said Sean Moshir, president and chief executive officer of PatchLink.com Corp.
"And, with the completion of Gravitix for the other operating systems, we'll have a complete, automated solution that will save companies thousands of dollars and hours tedious work."
Gravitix may be utilized with PatchLink.com "IT Super Site," which is a database repository of over 40,000 patches and drivers. Or, a user may create an independent master reference site. The latest version also supports both pull and push software distribution models. The software also contains alerting mechanisms along with a scheduler.
This allows for the complete automation that will ensure that a corporate server environment is always up to date, and will enhance the networks uptime and overall productivity of any workforce.
