RES PowerFuse 8 User Management Reviewed


It has been almost three years since RES Software released RES PowerFuse version 7.03 (also called RES PowerFuse 2005). In November 2007 RES finally released the new version:  RES PowerFuse Series 8.


For this version RES Software completely rebuilt the code of the product and changed the infrastructure. Earlier versions of RES PowerFuse used a file share (combined with a database) where configuration settings were stored. In RES PowerFuse Series 8, they changed to a completely different model using a database to store all configuration settings. Clients will cache the complete configuration set locally, so that clients can operate normally even if the database is down. After the initial caching of the full configuration set, the database and the local caches will only exchange new or changed data. It is now also possible to replicate the database to other sites using SQL techniques (and to connect devices to this replicated database logically). With the new infrastructure it is now possible to manage Terminal Servers, workstations and laptops using one configuration database. Besides this complete redesign of the RES PowerFuse back-end behind RES PowerFuse they also added about 200 enhancements in the product.



Just like the older version, the RES PowerFuse installation package consists of a single MSI file. During the installation only the license agreement and the destination location need to be specified. After this installation the system needs to be restarted, because the appguard driver acts at kernel level. After the restart you can start the RES PowerFuse Management Console (previously called the Real Enterprise Manager) to create the database. (RES PowerFuse supports MS SQL [Express], Oracle, DB2 and MySQL). This is done via the Create button, which presents a wizard. Obviously, you need an account which has sufficient rights on the SQL server. After creation of the database, you can  add other machines to the RES PowerFuse configuration by simply filling in the information about the existing database and then clicking the Connect button.
