Thinking about agent-based deployment automation? Think again!
You may have recently seen some of our competitors defending their maintenance-intensive and outdated agent-based technologies. Looks like they are feeling the heat of our agentless remote automation approach. In their position, these “defenses” are quite understandable. But agent-based solutions are simply unnecessary in today’s enterprise IT landscape. XL Deploy is the only deployment automation solution that is agentless across the enterprise - the only application release automation solution that does not require one of its components to be installed and running on every target system. Our unique agentless remoting capability is built on innovative, industry-acclaimed software engineering. This approach is the result of careful consideration and decades of remote administration expertise. You can read more about the background and market-leading engineering behind XL Deploy’s agentless technology in this technical research note. We explain the drivers behind our decision and outline some of the resulting benefits.Read the Research Note (PDF)
