Xandros to Debut 'BridgeWays for Red Hat' at CeBIT Hanover

New BridgeWays Management Console With Automated Workflow Cuts Server Costs by Up to 60 Percent

HANOVER, GERMANY--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - CeBIT - Xandros, the leading provider of intuitive Linux solutions and mixed-environment management tools, and parent of Scalix, Inc., the leading e-mail server and solutions company, today announced the preview of the all new Xandros BridgeWays Management Console for Red Hat servers. The Management Console showcased at CeBIT in Hanover and available for download from the Xandros web site brings foolproof graphical administration of Red Hat servers to system administrators that may have Windows Server skill sets, but with no prior Linux experience, reducing overall costs by as much as 60 percent. The workflow automation technology, developed for the award-winning Xandros Server, has been adapted to the administration of Red Hat servers. Multiple Red Hat servers and services are integrated into one single "Managed Community" that can be remotely administered from supported Red Hat servers, or from any Windows XP or Vista desktop.

"BridgeWays technologies hit the 'sweet spot' of businesses looking for the best open solutions, but who may lack in-house Linux expertise and can't afford costly outside consultants. Our ground-breaking solution saves an estimated two-thirds of overall server costs by combining rock-solid Red Hat Enterprise Linux with time-saving administrative tools," said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO. "BridgeWays Management Console for Red Hat is also a giant step in our unfolding strategy to deliver cross platform management tools that enhance the freedom of choice for administrators of today's mixed system environments."

Xandros BridgeWays Management Console provides centralized user management, system monitoring, and event viewing for administrators using 32- and 64-bit versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6 or 5.1. The BridgeWays Managed Community enables the management and administration of a host of integrated Red Hat services, including high availability and load balancing clustering, DHCP, DNS, file, firewall, FTP, print, proxy, routing, SELinux, SSH, storage manager, virtual machine manager, Web, and Windows networking.

Showcased at CeBIT

The preview of the Xandros BridgeWays Management Console for Red Hat is showcased at the Xandros booth at CeBIT Hanover, March 4-9, Hall / Halle 5, Linuxpark, Booth/Stand G57. The unsupported preview release is also available as a free download from the Xandros web site at www.xandros.com. The full BridgeWays for Red Hat rollout is slated for the second quarter of 2008, with support for Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server to follow.
