Boston, November 20, 2014 – Univention GmbH, the leading European provider of open source server and IT management solutions, today announced Univention Corporate Server 4.0 (UCS 4.0), a new major version of the leading enterprise server operating system. The newly designed and optimized Univention Management Console (UMC) gains new options for managing virtual machines, making it a single point of administration for on-premises IT, as well as for Openstack and Amazon EC2-based clouds. UCS offers an inclusive overview of all virtual machines, making it the perfect solution for managing hybrid cloud environments. Univention’s App Center, which includes more than 50 additional applications from Univention’s independent technology partners, has also gained major features. IT administrators will now be able to use this single App Center to manage all the applications installed within a UCS domain.

Likewise, new applications can be easily installed from the central UMC.
