Apple released the Apple Network Server in 1996. Nearly a decade after having thrown down the gauntlet with IBM in the personal computer ads, such as the now infamous 1984 ad, Apple and IBM were nice and cozy and Apple had taken a number of lumps in the market. Since the desktop operating system wasn’t made with the type of threading required for increasingly large centralized workloads, they partnered with IBM to get AIX running on a Network Server 500. Must have been quite the shiner.

It’s been about a year since most workers and students started getting sent home from organizations to slow the spread of COVID. Some environments were well positioned and others needed a much larger lift. Actually, it seems like a lot of things needed to change. In this episode we’ll look at a few things that had to change and a few that didn’t, and the novel concept of the Technology Drivers Test.

Feb 15, 2021

Patch management is one of the most time consuming aspects of any admin. There have been a number of projects that have sought to make this easier for admins. Some of the earliest tools we used to admin devices such as Filewave’s File Sets were replaced with the package format at many a shop when we moved to PackageMaker and the early Casper Suite. But those meant each organization needed to do the same work on the 10 to 1,000 software titles. Then tools like AutoPkg, Jamf Patch, and Kinobi came where the community could share recipes for making packages automatically. This is mostly for software that isn’t yet on the App Store.

These days we see a lot of hybrid approaches. AutoPkg with Autopkgr going to munki or Jamf through JamJar or Kinobi picking up a feed. We’ve had people from each of those tools on in the past, so today we have Ryan from Alectrona here to talk about what he’s been doing in this space!

Apple is a bit of a lifestyle brand. We’ve found that over the years our customers as consultants and users as engineers ask us more questions about the consumer ecosystem and company news than most any other gig in IT. So today we’re going to get caught up on the latest news coming out of Cupertino (and beyond).
