Univention Corporate Client 2.0 with easy configuration and RDP terminal services
Univention, a leading European supplier of Open Source products for the economic operation and efficient management of IT infrastructures, released a new version of its client operating system Univention Corporate Client (UCC). The Ubuntu basis of UCC 2.0 was updated to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. UCC thus profits from all the latest Ubuntu updates including improved hardware support. The most interesting innovation for administrators though is the new configuration wizard, which simplifies the clients’ configuration by guiding through the configuration process in a structured way and executing many bothersome tasks in the background. For this purpose, a new module was developed for the central administration interface Univention Management Console (UMC) which allows the central and easy management of all UCC images.
Univention technology partners have certified further solutions for monitoring PCs, services and storage management for UCS. Among them is Icinga, a fork of the well-known Open Source monitoring system Nagios included in UCS.
The Release Candidate of Univention Corporate Client 2.0, our management solution for the management of PCs, notebooks and thin clients, is now published.
