SUSE Manager 1.7 Released

Sep 27, 2012

SUSE announces the release of SUSE Manager 1.7 – the latest version of its systems management solution for enterprise Linux environments.

According to the announcement, SUSE Manager’s capabilities help enterprises comprehensively manage SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers with a single centralized solution.

Version 1.7 includes flexibility and compliance enhancements that help customers grow their Linux deployments while reducing management effort. It helps reduce both the total cost of ownership and complexity of managing Linux systems while improving compliance with corporate policies and external regulations.

Other new features include a standard approach to maintaining the security of enterprise systems (OpenSCAP), from auditing the status of software patches to confirming that servers have the latest security updates and security configuration settings. It also proactively watches for signs of certain security compromises.

SUSE Manager 1.7 now includes support for the open source PostgreSQL database and for IPv6 addresses. Additionally, the new version is aligned with the latest version of the open source project Spacewalk, which, according to the company, makes it the only Linux server-management solution built to handle both SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. SUSE Manager 1.7 is now available for download.
