FileWave Announces Support for Linux with FileWave Server and FileWave Booster

Software distribution with FileWave(TM) will be possible even in pure Windows environments

WIL, Switzerland, Feb. 25 - FileWave, the technological leader for software management tools on Windows and Mac OS systems, announced an important expansion of its multi-platform software management suite FileWave(TM). As of today, the FileWave(TM) Server and FileWave(TM) Booster will for the first time be made available for systems based on Linux. The initial platforms being supported are Red Hat/Fedora based Linux. Future support for other Linux-based platforms will be announced according to demand.

Originally a program designed exclusively for Macintosh, FileWave(TM) currently supports the installation and configuration of software on Windows clients. But the administrative components have previously always required Mac OS as an operating system.

"Where Apple Macintosh is concerned, FileWave(TM) offers unique functionality and speed during the distribution and installation of software, even in large networks with several thousand clients," explains Ben Forsyth, Director of Software Development at FileWave (USA), Inc. "The porting of FileWave to Linux makes our technology available for additional platforms: FileWave(TM) will consequently become a cross-platform solution for software distribution today and into the future."
