New release simplifies deployment of multi-tier applications and adds support for latest versions of Windows, Apple, Linux and virtual applications
Maidenhead, U.K. - August 19, 2014 - Flexera Software, the leading provider of next-generation software licensing, compliance and installation solutions for application producers and enterprises, announced today the launch of InstallAnywhere 2014. The new release simplifies deployment of multi-tier applications and adds support for the latest versions of Windows, Apple, Linux and virtual applications.
Simplifying Deployment of Web/Server Applications
Agile development is increasing the frequency of software releases and, as a result, the time and effort around developing software installers. InstallAnywhere 2014 is the only multi-platform installation solution capable of automatically detecting and removing previous versions of an application, and correctly upgrading a previous version on an existing customer's PC. This new standard installation framework simplifies development and installation of upgrades for application producers.
In addition, InstallAnywhere 2014 is the first multi-platform installation solution to provide out-of-the-box support for the latest versions of MySQL and its supporting user dialogs. This allows developers to install databases and supporting panels to MySQL locally and remotely in a simplified environment.
Moreover, Java web application archive (WAR) files are a common way of packaging a web application into a Java style ZIP file. However these files do not include a customer-facing interface for deployment, and they are limited in their ability to bundle supporting prerequisites, runtimes, and machine configuration tasks. InstallAnywhere 2014 now provides new built-in panels that give end users more flexibility by supporting easier deployment of WAR files to local or remote Apache Tomcat 6, 7, and 8 servers.
Support for the Latest Versions of Windows, Apple, Linux, and Virtual Appliances
InstallAnywhere 2014 provides new platform support for:
- Apple: Apple OS X Mountain Lion (10.8),Apple OS X Mavericks (10.9), plus Java 8 support for OS X;
- Microsoft Windows: Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2;
- IBM: IBM SUSE Linux 11.3, Ubuntu 12.04, Solaris 11 Sparc, HP-UX 11i, AIX 7.1, IBM i5/OS, z/OS;
- Red Hat: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Fedora 16.
"Virtualisation and the cloud continue to deliver tremendous benefits for both application producers and their customers," said Maureen Polte, Vice President of Product Management at Flexera Software. "InstallAnywhere 2014 accommodates both existing and emerging environments, enabling producers to support the physical configurations that customers still need and want, while delivering applications as cloud-based offerings."
