SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service 11 SP2 released
Posted on 30 March 2012.
SUSE announced SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service 11 SP2. New features in this latest update help IT administrators enhance overall store operations.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service includes a centralized directory-based administration server and point of service (POS) branch servers, as well as tools and templates to easily create, roll out and maintain operating system images for a wide variety of POS devices.

Security enhancements include full disk encryption on terminals for both data and root partitions, making it easier for administrators to build PCI DSS compliant systems.

Additionally, IT administrators can use the integrated subscription management tool to centrally manage software updates within the firewall on a per-system basis and help maintain corporate security policies and regulatory compliance, while also tracking entitlements across large deployments.

Reliability enhancements include RAID 1 support on the image-based terminals. Now SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service Pre-boot Execution Environment (PXE) images can be mirrored on each terminal to improve performance while increasing resiliency and availability.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service 11 SP2 also supports the storage of previous image versions and all related configuration files, including custom PXE boot configurations from a POS terminal, so administrators can roll back system configuration changes if needed, improving resiliency and service availability.

An updated version of the KIWI imaging suite streamlines deployment and management of retail-specific operating system images onto branch servers and POS devices, enabling retailers to easily build and reliably manage images for a wide variety of devices and configurations.
