Likewise Software's New Starter Packs Make Upgrading Easier for Enterprise
We've written a number of times about open source security and authentication applicaiton vendor Likewise Software, because they're a quality company with a great product line. Likewise Open supports over 125 platforms and links Linux, Unix, or Mac systems to Active Directory domains in one easy step. Likewise Enterprise allows IT departments to authenticate users, create reports for regulatory audits, and control access to applications and data.
If your IT department has been considering giving Likewise a whirl, the free download of Likewise Open is available for the taking. If you're already a Likewise Open customer, then you'll want to listen up. Tomorrow, the company is formally announcing new ways to upgrade to Likewise Enterprise but we've got the skinny right now.
Likewise Software plans to roll out three packages solutions that include desktop and server licenses, support services, and training:
* Likewise Enterprise desktop starter pack: 10 desktop licenses, 1-year support, half-day of training services for $1,608;
* Likewise Enterprise server starter pack: 10 server licenses, 1-year support, half-day of training services for $4,488;
* Likewise Enterprise combo starter pack: 5 desktop and 5 server licenses, 1-year support, half-day of training services for $3,048.
Likewise Enterprise provides 100% native support for Apple’s Workgroup Manager application, and contains several additional features you won't find in Likewise Open. The starter packs are designed to make upgrading painless by including support and training services that help make the process a seamless transition.
All three starter packs will be available for purchase online tomorrow, but you can sign up for a 30-day free trial of Likewise Enterprise today.
