Univention will be presenting two new UCS features at CeBIT this year: The AD Takeover Assistant, which will make it even easier to replace an Active Directory domain with UCS.
On 18th November 2013, Univention released Univention Corporate Server 3.2. This major release is characterised by an overall improved user guidance concept via a completely revised UCS start page and a revised Univention Management Console (UMC) overview page.
IT decision makers are hesitant to store sensitive corporate information on the cloud. They prefer to store confidential data locally. This implies the need for technologies that allow secure data matching of the data available on the cloud and the corresponding data stored locally.
The Federal Office for Radiation Protection in Germany introduced UCS in 2006 and recently updated to UCS 3.1 in May 2013, thus profiting from the Active Directory functions which are available in UCS thanks to the integration of the free software Samba 4.
Samba 4 was integrated in Univention Corporate Server (UCS) 1.5 years ago. Since then it has been offering UCS users Active Directory functionality with which domains and their users, groups, group policies and computers can be administered in both Windows and Linux environments.
This video demonstrates the features of the Univention Management Console, the “single point of administration” for the system administration and the domain and virtualization management.
