Available now at Twocanoes Software: Boot Runner 1.3
Introducing the powerful new maintenance scheduler
Boot Runner is a complete dual-boot startup solution to manage your boot volume selection process. The new maintenance feature brings additional power to scheduling Boot Runner to facilitate system updates and other remote maintenance tasks.
With feedback from several customers, we've added a powerful new administration tool in Boot Runner 1.3. More than simply a boot selection solution, Boot Runner puts network policy-based startup control in the hands of administrators to manage boot state remotely. Our new maintenance feature takes boot state control to a new level.
Boot Runner solved a chronic problem for one of our customers who needed a large number of dual-boot Macs to receive updates and anti-virus definitions on a routine 2AM schedule. Without manageable startup control, these systems fell out of compliance with required security standards. Prior to implementing Boot Runner's maintenance feature, all dual-boot systems were manually prepared by staff after-hours, incurring additional expense. Boot Runner saved the enterprise money, increased reliability of system updates and now maintains full security compliance for their entire dual-boot Mac enterprise.
