Veritas Delivers Software Delivery for W2K

Software - without it, computers cannot perform the functions that make them an integral part of daily life. Today, Veritas Software Corp. introduced software to ensure that Windows 2000 machines get the software they need.

Veritas (www.veritas.com) WinInstall 2000 distributes software across the network to desktops, workstations, and servers, allowing administrators to lubricate software installation, and enforce software policy network wide. A single console controls WinInstall 2000, which takes packages off of a network machine and delivers and installs the packages remotely.

Microsoft Corp. (www.microsoft.com) took a particular interest in Veritas’ changes for Windows 2000 and bundled a scaled-down version of WinInstall 2000 with the operating system. Microsoft believes that the solution will aid in Windows 2000 migration. Veritas hopes that the bundling of WinInstall 2000 will create an appetite for the full version. - Christopher McConnell
