It’s been a while since the last update to Meshcentral2, but work is starting up again after a big focus on MeshCommander. While MeshCommander is the web based Intel® AMT console, Meshcentral2 is the entire solution for web based remote management for both computer with and without Intel® AMT. I just put online Alpha3 of MeshCentral2. It’s not ready for common use yet, and being made available for people that want to check out early code. The focus on this release is on basic infrastructure of the server, something that will be important as the work moves along.
In this version, the main new feature is multi-tenancy support. Meshcentral2 can run one instance of the server with one database, but support many customers at once. Each customer gets to administer the site independently and has its own set of users and permissions. This architecture allows a lot more flexibility in server setup while pooling database, server, backups and other resources. It also makes it easy to run many customers under a single IP address and HTTPS certificate. Lowers the cost of hosting all around.
In this release I added a new optional configuration file, new command line options, new database update code and did a lot of bug fixes. We also included the very latest MeshCommander with subscriptions support, alarm clock and more. I tested this release on both Windows and Ubuntu Linux.
Progress is being made but, there is still no support for MeshAgent2. So you can only manage Intel® AMT machines without agents in this version. Most people will probably need to wait until that work is done being trying MeshCentral2.
Meshcentral2 Alpha 3 brings a bunch changes to the core of the server to
support hosting many servers at once. This is useful if you have one server
and want to support many customers at the same time.
The latest MeshCommander, the web based Intel® AMT console is built-into MeshCentral2.
