Gibraltar patches Solaris servers

Monday, 9 June 2003, 11:15 AM EST

Gibraltar Software introduced an appliance Friday that remotely patches Solaris servers.

Everguard already supports patch deployment on Windows and Linux servers; version 2.2 of the appliance adds support for remotely rebooting Solaris and other servers after failures occur.

The Everguard appliance called the Site Server is a 1U server that attaches to Ethernet. It then talks over the Internet to a Master Data Server located at a Gibraltar location that monitors operating system and security patches from companies such as Microsoft, Sun or Red Hat. Gibraltar collects patches and then sends them to the customer’s Site Server, where the patches can then be distributed to individual servers in the network.

Gibraltar claims that over 4,000 patches were reported last year. Because of this abundance of patches, deploying them becomes a time-consuming and bothersome process.
