The new Patch Manager provides centralized control of patch servers and applications across operating systems, Hagerman said. It automatically performs scanning and assessment, examining the current patch footprint in each application or OS and comparing it to available patches using policy-based rules to automatically manage updates. The upgraded Configuration Manager discovers all servers, applications, and complex dependencies among them, and tracks any changes in real time. This enables users to gain control over configuration changes to improve application availability and ensure configuration compliance to internal standards, Hagerman said.Pricing and Availability Veritas Server Foundation is available now, Hagerman said. Licensing fees start at $300 per CPU for each managed server. All Server Foundation components can be purchased separately or as part of a Server Foundation bundle, he said.
