NEI Announces Advanced Update Service for Appliance Deployments Including Physical, Virtual and Cloud Deployments

June 01, 2011


NEI (News - Alert), a provider of application platforms, appliance deployment solutions and lifecycle support services for software technology developers and OEMs, introduced an Advanced Update Service to effectively manage enterprise application and OS software updates across physical, virtual and cloud deployments.

Customers will benefit greatly from this Update Service, which is based on NEI’s digital fingerprinting technology used to distribute-, secure and authorized updates, to deployed software images running as an appliance or in the cloud.

“This secure service eliminates the cost, pain and hassle of updating and patching operating systems such as Linux, CentOS and Windows in the field. The ability to update the application and OS simultaneously, particularly as security and virtualization technologies evolve, is an obstacle for every application provider,” said Jeff Hudgins (News - Alert), vice president of marketing for NEI, in a statement.

“Our mission is to deliver services that help software vendors deploy and manage their solutions more effectively. Our advanced Update Service is the most efficient way to create, manage and administer OS and application updates and manifests to cloud applications and virtual appliance deployments,” Hudgins added.

Leveraging the Update Service, an active agent within NEI’s Element Manager Suite, customers can utilize a fully integrated application management tool kit controlled via a browser.

According to a press release, the new update capability provides application technology providers with much better application lifecycle control, which enables improved integrity and performance on all managed appliance deployments; quick and automated management of application and OS patches; simple, efficient image control; and reduced support costs and increased reliability.
