StarBurst Software Announces Streamlined Content Delivery Solution

StarBurst Software has announced the latest release of its StarBurst Sender software that is more tightly integrated with Microsoft's Systems Management Server 2.0. StarBurst Sender for Systems Management Server 2.0 provides a means of simultaneously distributing software to many remote sites over a number of different types of networks, including the Internet. Sender enables Systems Management Server 2.0 users to reduce network traffic, decrease the load on sending servers, and minimize software distribution time through bandwidth-efficient one-to-many simultaneous transfers.

Sender enables administrators of Microsoft Systems Management Server 2.0 to simultaneously distribute content to any number of receiving servers in the time it takes to distribute it via the conventional point-to-point method, regardless of the number of receivers or the content size.

The Sender software operates within the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) and helps users initiate and control the content distribution process throughout the network. Sender runs as an integral Windows NT-based service and employs a Systems Management Server-consistent graphical user interface.

Sender uses StarBurst's distribution engine to establish, monitor and terminate distribution sessions, enabling users to control the process from start to finish. The software also offers a technology that in the case of a file being lost or corrupted during transmission, retransmits only the lost or bad file rather than the entire content package.
