The Pulse 2 team is proud to announce that version 1.2.1 of Pulse 2
is available for all.
Pulse 2 is an Open Source tool that simplifies application deployment,
inventory, and maintenance of an IT network. It has been designed to
handle from dozens of computers on a single site to 100 000+ computers
spread on many sites. This easy-to-use, safe and flexible solution lets
* Deploy new software and security updates on all your IT assets,
* Perform software and hardware inventory,
* Do remote diagnostics and remote management.
An enormous work has been undertaken to improve the user experience,
especially on the fluidity and ergonomics of the interface.
Other parts, however, earn some eagerly functions such as:
- In the inventory module, the ability to split clients into logical
entities and to give users access to certain entities,
- In the MSC module, a new proxy mode (multiple) to make the
deployment of packages over broadband link safer and quicker.
Full details on changes are available on the release notes page.
As usual, installation instructions and packages are available in the
Download section, and up-to-date documentations may be found in the
Documentation section. Upgrade instructions are available on the
upgrade procedures page. The Pulse 2 demo image has also been
updated, amongst its evaluation guide.
Feel free to try it, use it, spread it ! Should you have any question or
remark about this release, don't hesitate to use the mailing lists.
The Pulse 2 team.
