Solsoft's NetFilterOne

Linux Journal's security czar, Mick Bauer, has opined numerous times that a good Netfilter firewall GUI is not just a crutch for the less technical among us, but rather a tool that makes all of us IT administrators work more intelligently. Solsoft recently upgraded its own Netfilter GUI, NetFilterOne. The application is a centralized interface from which one can configure, deploy, enforce and audit rules and policies among Netfilter firewalls. The shiny new Version 1.2 offers the following three key new features: a new Tabular Policy Editor that allows users to manage all permissions in a unified view; bridge mode, also called transparent mode by other providers; and support for Linux Netfilter iptables-1.3.x. A free trial of NetFilterOne is available at Solsoft's Web site.

Arkeia Software's Network Backup

If your backup duties include files and directories named with non-Latin characters, you're in luck. Arkeia Software's newly released Network Backup Version 5.5 adds full support for Unicode/UTF-8 characters in the backup index. Unicode supports characters from all the world's major languages and is most commonly applied to languages such as Japanese, Chinese and Arabic.

Heroix's Longitude

Heroix has upgraded its Longitude agentless performance monitoring and reporting software. The application is intended to monitor an enterprise's entire IT infrastructure, including OS, Web, database, J2EE, messaging, infrastructure, and user and business metrics, all right out of the box and without agent software on monitored computers. Innovations in Version 3 are event correlation across the entire infrastructure, enhanced SLA management via a new graphical event monitor, adjustable workload threshold settings to eliminate false alarms and a range of added monitoring coverage (Cisco devices, Dell OpenManage, HP Systems Insight Manager and SNMP device checking). Platforms monitored are Red Hat and SUSE Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX and Windows. A 14-day free trial is available at Heroix's Web site.

Rain's picture

I like AutoCAD. It is very convenient and really makes the work move faster. I remember I've downloaded it at shared files SE . Several options didn't work, but in general I liked it.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
