Comodo Group Inc writes "Latest version of the unique server recovery and management tool includes support for Windows based servers, a new API and free, 5 server license.
Jersey City, NJ (June 7th 2006) Comodo, through their Web Hosting and server automation division PSOFT, announced today the immediate availability of NOC Monkey 2.0 beta 1, the latest version of their advanced web-based remote server provisioning solution. The software automates the usually labor intensive task of server provisioning by providing a simple web based interface from which operating systems can be remotely installed, recovered and deployed.
Most notable of the improvements in Version 2.0 beta is the introduction of support for Windows 2003 Server, Windows XP and Windows 2000 – extending the reach, versatility and value of the application to web hosts and administrators offering both Windows and Linux based services. The new build also sees the addition of recovery mode support for the FreeBSD 6.0 operating system.
Also included in the latest version is the all-new NOC Monkey API (Application Programming Interface). The feature, much requested by Psoft customers, enables users to utilize and manage all the features of a NOC Monkey server from a console interface.
Featuring admin and user level access, the system also enables administrators to change root passwords, run fsck in single user mode, recover hacked servers and custom partition hard disks from the same interface. Furthermore, using a new 'grab/install' system, the software adapts to various OS/hardware configurations by auto detecting new servers.
NOC Monkey delivers enhanced provisioning speeds for datacenter administrators and web-hosting companies alike. Within a few clicks, servers can be remotely recovered, operating systems installed and root passwords changed - exercises that usually require a physical presence and take time, effort and therefore money to accomplish.
The utility also represents large cost savings over alternative solutions such as remote console or ghosting software.
Igor Seletskiy, CTO of Comodo, believes the new features in Version 2.0 make NOC Monkey an invaluable tool for web hosts and data center administrators running servers on multiple operating systems.
"There is now a low cost means for datacenter operators in multi-vendor environments to slash overheads, increase efficiency and provisioning speeds whilst extending functionality and adding to their customer value proposition. "
NOC Monkey is available for trial with 5 free server licenses from http://nocmonkey.psoft.net/
