Xandros Management Tool Facilitates Red Hat Server Administration

Xandros BridgeWays Management Console Smooths Server Migration from Windows to Red Hat

Xandros announced the release of the all new Xandros BridgeWays Management Console for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The BridgeWays Management Console, available as a free download from the Xandros web site, brings powerful graphical management of Red Hat servers to system administrators who may have Windows Server skill sets, but no prior Linux experience. Linux administrators will also find that this all-in-one remote management console relieves them from resorting to command line options or using multiple tools to administer their Red Hat servers. Multiple servers and services are integrated into a single “Managed Community” that can be remotely administered from either a Red Hat server, or from any Windows XP or Vista desktop.

“Windows administrators who have been afraid to try Linux servers should fear no more. Many companies claim to have Linux management software that’s easy and intuitive, but Xandros is the only one to truly deliver on that promise,” said Marcin Zalicki, Country Manager of Amazis.net, a leading Polish open IT solutions provider. “Clear, intuitive, and really easy to use, Xandros BridgeWays for Red Hat will open the eyes of Windows administrators to the power of the Linux world. By collecting services like DHCP, DNS, firewall, file and print servers, Web servers, or even virtual machines, high availability and failover in a single place, the BridgeWays Management Console reduces to a minimum their administrative tasks. They can even manage their Red Hat servers directly from their Windows machine, and no additional training is required.”

“Today, with our coupling of rock solid Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the ease of Xandros BridgeWays Management Console, there is no better time to employ Linux servers and solve IT needs. Now that we have eliminated the need for in-house Linux experts or costly outside consultants, a large number of businesses can benefit from inexpensive and robust Linux solutions,” said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO. “We began the BridgeWays project two years ago with the vision that centralized graphical management tools and workflow automation would help spur the growth of Linux servers in areas where Windows servers were predominant. After a fast rise to about 20 percent of the server market, the worldwide curve of Linux server installs has since flattened, while the Windows server share has risen to as much as 70 percent. This underscores the need to make Linux servers easy to administer.”

Xandros BridgeWays Management Console provides centralized user management, system monitoring, and event viewing for administrators using 32- and 64-bit versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6, 5.1, or 5.2. The BridgeWays Managed Community enables the integrated management and administration of a host of Red Hat services via management plug-ins, including high availability and load balancing clusters, DHCP, DNS, file, firewall, FTP, print, proxy, routing, SELinux, SSH, storage manager, virtual machine manager, Web, Windows networking, and many others.
