Palo Alto, CA (PressExposure) April 02, 2012 -- CFEngine Incorporated introduces CFEngine 3 which is expected to help many organization overcome challenges in dealing with their IT systems. The company provides different solutions for IT Configuration Management of both small and large scale businesses around the world.
"To help our customers deal with different issues and concerns in their IT systems, our CFEngine editions offer the best solutions," Nili Gafni, marketing specialist for CFEngine says in an interview during their marketing campaign.
Two CFEngine editions were developed and designed for different types of users. The open-source CFE Community is the basic configuration management technology used by CFEngine. It offers hands-free automation and lightweight scalability. Although with certain limitations, its extensive user community can prove its usefulness. You can readily download CFE Community from CFEngine's Website for free.
For organizations that need an official and licensed IT configuration management [http://cfengine.com/blog/tag/IT+Configuration+Management] system, CFE NOVA is more ideal. Its technology is built upon CFE Community but with many added features. Its main feature is the Nova Mission Portal dashboard which is a graphical user interface where users can set policies and monitor their system. The Mission Portal also has the ability to produce policy reports on the status or condition of any service or machine used in the business. This in turn allows executives to review and develop IT metrics which are girded toward business goals of the organization.
The best thing about CFE Nova is that it has a native support for Windows which is the commonly used operating system of many companies. Using CFE Nova, users will be able to effectively manage Windows servers, desktops, Windows Registry, Windows services and Windows Access Control Lists (ACLs). The software simplifies everything from implementation to compliance of IT regulations and best practices for both commercial and government sector. With this version, IT audit is also faster and can be done within hours instead of days or weeks using older versions or other systems.
Improved Hypervisor integration is another feature of CFE Nova. It enhances support for the creation and management of XEN/KVM virtual machines with the use of the industry-standard libvirt API library. Additionally, it supports Mission-Critical High Availability with its unique architecture for system information updating which has fail-safe redundancy and lightweight characteristics. With this feature, users can get reliable and predictable insights on what is going on in their system. In case of fault or failure, its recovery time only takes five minutes which is very fast compared to other systems and it can be hardly matched by competing software.
"Our CFEngine editions were brilliantly engineered so that all the best features necessary for solving various IT configuration management [http://cfengine.com/blog/tag/IT+Configuration+Management] challenges and problems are contained in them." Gafni stated.
