Zmanda Adds Console

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Zmanda, the leader in open source backup and recovery software, today launched a new version of its Amanda Enterprise Edition, including pioneering new functionality that simplifies and accelerates the installation and management of Amanda backup and recovery software.

Amanda Enterprise Edition now comes with the Zmanda Management Console (ZMC), a new Web-based service that provides the first management and visualization tools for Amanda. ZMC offers rich and innovative installation, configuration, backup and reporting tools to greatly simplify the management of Amanda backups. Amanda Enterprise also includes a new Amanda rapid installer, which provides easy and automatic installation of a complete Amanda solution (Amanda server, Amanda client, all ZMC components) in minutes.
