3 Big data security analytics techniques

Citrix has bolstered its product offering by bringing out two new systems management applications - Citrix Installation Management Services and Citrix Resource Management Services - and updating some old favourites. Installation Management Services is designed to enable IT managers to install an application on a server just once and then roll it out across the entire client network via a server farm of WinFrame or MetaFrame servers. Individual users will be notified of freshly installed applications by the appearance of a new icon on their desktop. This process is designed to save on the time involved in running application set-ups in order to publish new software applications across an organisation. Prior to the launch of this package, it would have been necessary to install any new application on all the organisation’s individual servers. Citrix Resource Management Services allows full system monitoring and application audits to be carried out in server environments. Such monitoring can be done in real time while WinFrame, MetaFrame and Windows Terminal Server can continue to be run at their optimum. It also works with most ODBC-compliant databases and other widely used analysis tools. In addition to the two new tools applications, Citrix has also refreshed WinFrame and MetaFrame - both are now in release 1.8. MetaFrame 1.8 offers better bandwidth performance, server redundancy and availability, along with improved multi-media capability. It also includes new ICA clients for Linux and SCO Unix users. This is intended to open up the use of Windows-based applications to users on a variety of different platforms without the need for additional hardware or software enhancements. A 15-user MetaFrame 1.8 licence has a list price of $5,995. WinFrame 1.8 is aimed at users operating in Windows NT 3.51 environments. The latest release contains Seamless Windows - a feature that allows users to access multiple Windows-based applications. It also has audio support, a tool to allow one user to shadow other users and ALE Wizard, which automatically generates HTML when deploying Windows-based applications via the Internet. It is also priced at $5,995 for a 15-user licence. ® Citrix and ASPs to build on Microsoft licensing changes Microsoft Terminal Server policy collapses
