The GOsa open source infrastructure management project has been forked with version 1.0 of FusionDirectory being released today.
In February some GOsa developers decided to fork the project in order to provide better documentation; develop “the most powerful and universal” tool for IT management; and provide “more flexibility for development tools”.
Hence a new free software project was born by the name of FusionDirectory, with its first public release now available at: www.fusiondirectory.org
The project was coined “Fusion” and “Directory” because its goal is to “centralise a lot of network services” and it is based on a LDAP directory system.
FusionDirectory is an infrastructure management tool that allows administrators to manage users, groups, services, servers and workstations on the corporate network and manage the deployment of operating systems and software.
Most of the popular LDAP directory servers are supported.
Other services like IP telephony accounts and Web services can also be managed with FusionDirectory, which is controlled via a Web interface.
