ScaleXtreme Cloud-Based Patch Management Open for New Customers

ScaleXtreme, the leading provider of server automation products for the distributed data center, has opened access to its recently launched cloud-based patch management automation solution for use in public cloud machines, virtual machines and physical servers. Anyone can now signup for ScaleXtreme and begin scanning their servers for operating system vulnerabilities. Customers enjoy the ability to schedule, deploy and automate patches for multiple machines in the enterprise or hosted at a public cloud provider. Patches for Windows 2003, Windows 2008, CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu are available immediately.

"We worked closely with select early adopters to ensure the product works great and are now pleased to open this remarkable scanning and patching functionality to anyone with a ScaleXtreme account," said ScaleXtreme CEO and Co-Founder Nand Mulchandani. "The demand for patch management from our community amazed us, dramatically exceeding our expectations."

The product enables customers to deploy patches on the fly or on a specific schedule, such as during periods of planned maintenance, making the experience easy for both systems administrators and IT managers. Patching is one of many server operations radically simplified by ScaleXtreme's cloud-based automation engine, which allows customers to automate all of their routine server management tasks through a single framework.

"Customers have come to expect the same security features they enjoy inside their firewall to be available in the public cloud," said Mulchandani. "Effective patch management helps people safely begin to bring long-running, stateful servers into the public cloud, where they can be managed like any other server in the enterprise. No other security or systems management product that we know of can operate across physical servers, virtual machines and the public cloud in this fashion."

ScaleXtreme offers free patch scanning for all public cloud machines, virtual servers and physical servers through its free ScaleXtreme Xpress product. For more information, visit
