Traditional ZENworks Enterprise Desktop Management Major advantages: Extremely available – scalability, resilience, up time –Tens of thousands of workstations hitting a single 3 node NetWare cluster –Resilient (clustering, failover, application and site lists) –Bandwidth efficient within firewall (site lists, Tiered Electronic Distribution) –Well understood –Many ZENworks, NetWare and eDirectory administrators worldwide In live deployment traditional ZENworks scales up to 125,000 devices and users with a small team of administrators. –Unlike ANYONE else –Extremely cost effective
Traditional ZENworks Client-server architecture back-end servers managed devices connectivity within firewall eDirectory replication tiered electronic distribution
Traditional ZENworks Enterprise Desktop Management ZENworks for Desktops 4 introduced the Middle Tier Removed the requirement for Novell Client32 on workstations Allowed management outside the firewall Provided management across standard protocols – https and CIFS ZENworks 6, ZENworks 6.5 and ZENworks 7 provided significant enhancements –Scalability –Platform support –'ZENMUP' – inside the firewall use the Microsoft client to get updates from the CIFS share
back-end servers managed devices connectivity within firewall eDirectory replication tiered electronic distribution Traditional ZENworks Middle Tier architecture middle tier servers outside firewall
Traditional ZENworks Enterprise Desktop Management These architectures have served us well – but it is time for a change: Customers demand standard protocols on the wire –No more NCP, drive to LDAP, CIFS, HTTPS Middle Tier was always a stepping stone to cleaner protocols Move to a role-based, task-oriented browser-centric management console Remove the boundaries between products – move to a common interface, common repository, common metaphor between product and across platforms Become truly environment agnostic –support eDirectory, Active Directory, LDAP –support multiple platforms
Traditional ZENworks desired changes Changes: easier to install and deploy remove dependency on corporate eDirectory remove chatty communication to back-end more flexibility unify the product all web-based administration support server consolidation
Future ZENworks new architectural elements New Architecture: introduction of an embedded object store enhanced and expanded database, simplified schema web-services/SOAP interfaces browser-based administration console new daemon with pluggable agents redundant services (multi-server service) configurable client redirection to back-end web services

23 Graphics & Typeface RED ORANGE GREEN BLUE GRAY DARK GRAY Icons/Lines: This presentation refresh simplifies the current template and pushes focus on the content being presented. The icon library will continue to be utilized, but a refresh will be noticeable with the removal of the dotted lines around each icon, and a subtle color shift. These icons are created to provide a professional, consistent look. When these icons are used sparingly, and in direct relation to the content on the slides, our presentations will communicate and work more effectively. Note: Typeface: Arial has been selected as the new typeface for all Novell communications. The following were considered. 1. Our typeface needs to be designed to carry information quickly to the reader. 2. It needs to be usable for Novell employees in company correspondence and presentations, as well as for outside vendors for marketing and promotion. 3. It needs to easily function on the Linux, Windows and Macintosh platforms. 4. And finally, Arial was created for these exact purposes.
