FanOut and Single Site Download enhance Nomad 2012’s ability to supercharge Windows 7 and 8 upgrades, software deployments and patch distribution
London and New York, January 15, 2013: 1E, the global leader in IT efficiency software, today announces the release of 1E Nomad 2012 version 5.0 with two new features, FanOut and Single Site Download.
Nomad 2012 is a software solution for Microsoft System Center 2007 and 2012 that provides organizations the ability to optimize the distribution of software and patches across their networks without the requirement for any additional servers or appliances. Nomad 2012’s new functionality ensures that companies can now complete Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8 migrations in the fastest possible time.
FanOut’s new many-to-many method of peer-to-peer communication allows data transfer to happen in a fully connected or “spider web” manner across the local network. With algorithmic optimization, FanOut is far more efficient than linear topologies or “daisy chain” methods, which actually slow down software deployments and OS migrations.
1E has tested FanOut with real world customers over the past six months and found it to be at least three times faster than with previous versions of Nomad. These benefits are exhibited through clients starting deployments faster, shorter deployment duration and the completion time for total end-to-end Windows 7 and 8 migrations, software deployments, and patches significantly reduced.
Single Site Download allows large, complex organizations to effectively flatten and remove complexity from their network infrastructure by grouping physical networks (including subnets) into logical sites and locations.
Requiring no additional servers or management consoles, IT staff or third-party vendors can integrate SSD features into their network services to allow their network to dynamically organize itself. Through SSD, organizations using Microsoft Configuration Manager can optimize WAN traffic even further to not only have systems management traffic back off to the business traffic, but, at the same time, ensure that important data is distributed to remote locations with no impediments.
“Nomad 2012 has a great track record of success within many of the world’s largest organizations, 1E has now improved Nomad 2012 even further to bring the most advanced Systems Management features to market for bandwidth management, server infrastructure and OSD automation,” says Sumir Karayi, CEO of 1E. “Already a world leader for the fastest Windows 7 migrations with customers reporting more than 30,000 OS deployments a month, we are now able to significantly improve on this rate with Nomad 2012’s new functionality and ensure companies can complete their migration before April 2014 when Extended Support for Windows XP expires.”
Already companies like Verizon Wireless, Saint-Gobain and Dell have drastically reduced their server infrastructure with Nomad by leveraging its bandwidth savings and peer-to peer distribution methods.
