Xandros Delivers Windows-Linux Interoperability with New Cross-Platform Management Console

Xandros, Inc., today announced the completion of a Windows-based version of Xandros Management Console (xMC), which can remotely manage Linux servers from any networked Windows Vista or Windows XP client. The new cross-platform management tool enhances IT managers' freedom and flexibility by allowing them to manage a mixed environment of Linux and Unix enterprise servers from their existing Windows platform. xMC for Windows will ship with the forthcoming stand-alone Xandros BridgeWays cross-platform management suite, as well as with the Xandros Server 2 products, all of which apply Xandros' unique workflow-driven award-winning “Managed Community” framework to the centralized administration of Xandros, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and other Linux servers.

"xMC for Windows is an essential component of our mixed-environment, cross-platform BridgeWays management tools and interoperability software suite, which enable data center and departmental managers to choose an optimal mix of desktops and servers to run today's diverse computing environments,” said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO. “Our new xMC cross-platform management console allows you to deploy Linux servers throughout your organization without concern for what desktop operating systems they'll be managed from. Without xMC IT administrators must use multiple tools on different platforms to manage their heterogeneous environments. Now they can implement Xandros, Red Hat and other Linux servers, and then use xMC alongside Microsoft Management Console to manage all their servers from a single location and in a similar manner.”
