Landscape Updates Offer Improved Enterprise Admin Controls


Canonical announced a major update to Landscape, an enterprise-grade systems management tool that is included in the Ubuntu Advantage service subscription.

System administrators should like the new compliance features, role-based access controls, and a scriptable API in the latest system management tool release. Landscape Product Manager at Canonical, Federico Lucifredi, says the latest release increases how much managers can do with their sys admin's valuable time. "When you have 1,000 machines, are you going to have a hundred administrators? No," he explains.

Video demos and a free 30-day trial are available on the Landscape site.

Landscape is offered as part of the Ubuntu Advantage support program, which also includes desktop, server, and cloud services.
