iTools 9: Apache Web Serving Made Easy

Web-based Configuration for Apache, DNS, FTP on Mac OS X

Santa Barbara, CA, January 9, 2008.Tenon announced today the release and immediate availability of iTools 9, with the latest Apache 2.2.6, for both Intel and PPC Macs with Leopard or Tiger. Tenon's iTools is a ninth-generation commercial web-based GUI for configuration and management of Apache, DNS and FTP. iTools' secure, domain-specific, browser-based web administration makes Apache on Mac OS X the easiest web server in the world to administer. On Apple's Mac OS X Intel client platform, iTools features unbeatable price performance characteristics.

In addition to including the newest Apache, Tenon's iTools 9 now includes many improvements and bug fixes to both DNS and FTP. iTools 9's enhanced FTP support has a built-in File Manager that lets you assign clients to unique groups and let all members of a particular group share in the uploading, deleting and renaming of content files. With iTools, web-hosting providers can automate hosting tasks and delegate administration, empowering customers and lowering support costs. Sub-administrators can manage their own name or IP-based web sites and view their own logs, without compromising the privacy or security of the multi-server machine.

Apache is the world's most popular web server, running on more than 76 million servers on various OS platforms. Apache 2.2.6 has new architectural features resulting in significantly improved memory and disk utilization, support for files greater than 2GB, and a new database interface architecture, enabling database applications to work more efficiently. These and a legion of other improvements contribute to the faster performance and very robust operation. Apache 2.2.6, is considered the best available version of Apache, offering tremendous improvements in authentication, proxy and caching from previous versions, and all users of earlier versions are encouraged to update. Coupling the newest Apache with Apple's advanced OS and Tenon's unique management tools provides the basis for a powerful, robust, easy-to-manage web server.

WebSTAR customers who have switched to iTools are enjoying better performance, superb Tenon support, and, most important, the freedom that using an open source web server provides over the proprietary province of 4D's (now Kerio's) WebSTAR. And Tenon's highly-regarded support is ensuring solid operation whether they have a single site or are supporting hundreds of complex sites for demanding clients, each with their own special web add-ons.

iTools, in two separate packages, one for Intel and one for PPC, is $349. Upgrading from earlier iTools versions is $275. A WebSTAR Transition package, which includes an iTools license along with technical assistance to transition web sites from WebSTAR to Apache is $550.
