Novell Inc. has updated its iFolder file management software and Zenworks management application with several additional features not contained in earlier versions of the products, the Provo, Utah-based software company announced at the CeBIT 2002 trade show being held in Hanover, Germany.
IFolder Professional Edition 2 now offers support for the Linux and Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Solaris operating systems, in addition to existing support for Novell NetWare and Microsoft Corp.'s Windows NT/2000, Novell said. Professional Edition 2 also offers Web access to files from handheld devices running Windows CE and Palm OS, it said.
Professional Edition 2 also adds the ability to pool multiple iFolder servers under a single domain name, a billing system which has the ability to track which departments or users are using the system, and a pass phrase recovery feature. IFolder Professional Edition 2 will become available on April 17 at US$49 per user license. Service provider licensing at $1.50 per user each month and upgrades for $26 per user are also available.
Novell has also developed a version of its Zenworks management application specifically designed to manage handheld devices. Novell ZenWorks for Handhelds 4.7 is designed to let IT managers centrally manage and update applications on devices running Palm OS, Windows CE and Pocket PC software. It also allows managers to keep an inventory of handheld software and hardware.
Zenworks for Handhelds 4.7 will initially be available from March 15 for $49 per user. The regular price is $59, according to Novell.
