REDWOOD CITY, CA (Gawkwire.com) LinMin (http://www.linmin.com), provider of award-winning LinMin Bare Metal Provisioning™ (http://www.linmin.com/site/products.html), today unveiled Release 5.3, featuring an enhanced user interface that makes it even easier for first time users to remotely install Linux and Windows on servers, blades, workstations and virtual machines within minutes of downloading the product.
LinMin 5.3 also includes provisioning support for recently released or soon to be released Linux distributions including 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 5.3, Novell® SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 and 10 SP3, Ubuntu® 8.10, Fedora 10, OpenSUSE® 11.1 and CentOS 5.3, as well as 64-bit versions of Windows® Server 2003. The combination of breadth of platform support (http://www.linmin.com/site/platforms.html), ease of use and affordability all contribute to LinMin’s adoption in companies from AT&T and Kodak to small and midsized hosting companies.
Browser-based One-Click provisioning role creation detects what operating system media has been uploaded in the LinMin server and automatically completes the form with paths to all relevant files needed to provision systems. The user no longer needs to reference printed documentation, rely on memory or navigate up and down the operating system media to locate files. This feature essentially eliminates the possibility of human error for standard Windows and Linux deployments.
“Ease of use is too often overlooked by providers of systems management solutions that cater to IT domain experts rather than to all IT users,” said Laurent Gharda, CEO and founder of LinMin Corp. “LinMin’s approach is to simplify things as much as possible, hide the underlying complexity and let the user get a job done quickly and without errors. One-Click provisioning role creation is a representative example of this philosophy whereby users don’t need to know the intricate differences between provisioning Red Hat, Novell, Windows or Ubuntu. Simply point, click and you’re ready to remotely install an operating system on systems of your choice.”
