Tenon Intersystems announced today a new Aqua GUI for their award-winning Apache configuration and management tool for Mac OS X. Tenonis iTools 6.0, released in April, enables webmasters to configure and remotely manage Apache, DNS, FTP, along with a range of other Mac OS X internet services, by using a standard browser on any platform. Now, with Tenonis new Aqua GUI, webmasters will also be able to manipulate Apache, DNS, and FTP directly on Appleis Aqua desktop. The new GUI will co-exist with Tenonis secure, remote browser-based administration, enabling webmasters to seamlessly switch between desktop management and anywhere, anytime browser-based control.
Tenonis iTools has been used for almost two years now, initially on Appleis precursor to Mac OS X, the early Mac OS X Server 1.2. The new iTools 6.0 is designed not only for Mac OS X, but also for Appleis upcoming Mac OS X Server. Using iTools 6.0 lets Macintosh webmasters realize the full strength of an Apache-based web server, with all the concomitant benefits of using standard internet tools for dynamic content creation, and at the same time have all the advantages of an easy-to-use web server. "With iTools ease-of-use, top-performance and extensibility, coupled with Mac OS Xis pre-emptive multitasking and protected memory, we expect Macintosh webmasters to rapidly transition to Mac OS X", said Tenonis President, Anita Holmgren. Because all the needed web server capabilities will be available using Tenonis iTools 6 on Mac OS X, webmasters will only need to consider Appleis upcoming new server product if they need the additional file sharing, NetBoot, or other advanced hardware features. iTools 6 will be supported on both platforms, giving webmasters a choice."
iTools is available for US$399. You can find more information at the Tenon Intersystems Web site.
