How to Get Started with Amanda Rapid Installer

This year Zmanda announced Amanda Enterprise Edition 3.6.

With that new edition, upgrades came to the Zmanda Management Console (ZMC) as well. The console is a simple, secure, and easy to use interface for Amanda Enterprise. ZMC allows users to configure and administer Amanda backups, restore from Amanda backup archives, and access in-depth backup reports.

In addition to the Zmanda Management Console upgrades, Amanda Enterprise Edition 3.6 includes the Amanda Rapid Installer.

Amanda Rapid Installer makes the installation of Amanda Enterprise Edition and Zmanda Management Console a simple process. Users just need to download the common binary for all supported platforms from the Zmanda Network, run the installer, answer a few questions, and the installer launches Zmanda Management Console in a browser.

Amanda Rapid Installer installs all necessary dependencies such as Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl for the platform and does not impact any existing installations of these softwares.

The Amanda Rapid Installer is one of the key tools in our arsenal to make all aspects of Amanda Enterprise easier to use.
