ThinPrint has released a new version of its ThinPrint Engine printing solution. The on-premises software for remote and virtual desktop printing offers extensive enhancements for stable, high availability printing environments.
This new version includes an early warning system for spooler problems that examines the speed of spool processes and redirects print jobs to other servers if a timeout occurs, proactively preventing printing outages.
With ThinPrint 12, administrators have a central overview of spooler issues on desktop computers. Also, settings for high availability can be made via group policies. In addition, the ThinPrint Secure Tunnel used for the protected transfer of print data from remote and branch offices to head offices can now be operated in high availability mode. To ensure the failure of one server doesn’t have any negative effect on printing, all connections are dynamically distributed to the existing servers. This means that if one secure tunnel fails, another is automatically used.
The ThinPrint license server is also now multi-client capable. Service providers can now use a single license server for all their tenants, as the user administration is separated, and each end customer can only see and manage their own user and domain structure.
