Aqua Apache: Tenon's iTools 6.5 Now Shipping

New iTools Manager Makes Apache Easy

Santa Barbara, CA, December 3, 2001. Tenon Intersystems announced today a new version of its Apache administration tools. Tenon's web server tool suite, iTools 6.5 for Mac OS X 10.1 and Mac OS X Server 10.1, has been extended by an Aqua GUI that enables webmasters to set up and configure Apache directly on Apple's Aqua desktop. Tenon's iTools Manager makes difficult tasks easy and Apple's Aqua makes it pretty. The new GUI co-exists with Tenon's secure, remote, browser-based administration, enabling webmasters to seamlessly switch between desktop management and anytime, anywhere browser-based control.

The Aqua Apache administration tools provide configuration, not only for Apache, but also for DNS, FTP and mail. Tenon's iTools can be used with Mac OS X 10.1 'client' or with Mac OS X Server 10.1. Both the new Aqua GUI and the award-wining browser-based tools give webmasters more than just ON and OFF buttons, but instead provide total web site control, extending the webmaster's reach to a level that far exceeds what is available even with Apple's new OS X Server. The combination of Apple's new powerful OS, Apache's strength and breadth, and Tenon's iTools for ease of administration, makes Apple's new platform one of the best choices for web service in the world.

The new iTools Manager lets webmasters set up virtual hosts, create URL Aliases and Redirects, create self-signed SSL certificates and SSL certificate requests, create realm-based, host-based, and cipher-based Access Controls, and perform a myriad of other tasks. No need for Macintosh webmasters to "learn" Apache; they can just use the knowledge they have from years of being a Mac OS webmaster and Tenon's technology will translate their mouse clicks and table entries into terms that Apache can understand.

Tenon's iTools includes SSL for secure eCommerce transactions, FastCGI and mod_Perl for top CGI performance, an integrated, state-of-the-art caching proxy server that augments Apache's built-in proxy services, integrated domain name services, integrated multidomain ftp services, integrated logging, a high-performance Sherlock-savvy search engine. Also included is support for Java servlets and Java Server Pages with Tomcat, support for Active Server Pages with Halcyon's iASP, and mod_dav to support the transition from a read-only web to a collaborative, writable web via WebDAV clients. In addition, a powerful WEBmail tool turns Mac OS X into a complete POP3 and IMAP4 mail server and a fully customizable, anytime, anywhere 'hotmail' style mail client.

Tenon's iTools 6.5 is a free upgrade for all iTools 6.0 customers. For new customers, the price is $399, $299 (educational and sidegrades from WebSTAR), and $99 (upgrade from iTools 5.0).
