Software Packaging - RayPack

Create reliable packages for software delivery


RayPack Dashboard

 

An enterprise IT department has to face many changes nowadays: migration to Windows 10, virtualization, cloud computing, bring-your-own-device and a lot more. IT managers are asked not only to defi ne strategies for these new subject matters, but also to cut costs and improve the efficiency in all areas of their work, whilst delivering better service to their end-users.

With this growing complexity in mind, adhoc testing, converting, and packaging applications is no longer a viable method. IT departments need to control and streamline tasks by a unified Application Lifecycle Management system, which encompasses the whole application lifecycle. A critical part of this lifecycle is the packaging or re-packaging of software applications to convert them to the required format for automated deployment to managed devices. This is exactly where RayPack as a framework for the creation and management of software packages kicks in: it supports a broad variety of package formats, operating systems, and deployment systems. The RayPack components allow enterprises to implement well structured processes for controlling and executing EALM tasks.

Intelligent management of virtual environments
RayPack Studio allows you to remotely manage, start, stop and execute all operations of a packaging process on virtual environments such as clients and servers. No matter whether it is packaging, evaluation or quality assurance procedures. With the new functionality to operate a virtual packaging factory, RayPack Studio enables a wide range of target groups, including freelancers, service providers or end customers, to realize complex packaging projects easily and efficiently with minimal time and organizational effort. The centralized and automated management of virtual environments is the main focus here and, in addition to the rapid change of different customer environments and operating systems, offers a more cost-efficient and comfortable use.

In order to manage these processes, RayPack utilizes integrated framework components along with external connectors, which enable interoperability with market leading workflow, software deployment and data storage systems. Despite its standalone usability, RayPack Studio is fully integrated within RaySuite, Raynet’s suite of Enterprise Application Lifecycle Management products. RaySuite delivers all the required lifecycle tools embedded into the central workflow management system RayFlow. RayFlow encompasses highly specialized applications for the successful completion of inventory, evaluation, packaging, compatibility assessment, quality assurance, and the final deployment of software packages.

Components
When Windows Installer procedures reach their limitations, RayPack is ready to raise the bar. Intuitive wizards guide the user through classical packaging tasks – beginning with repackaging, then moving on to the generation of Windows Installer Transform files, and finally coping with the realization of complex packaging requirements. Our framework simultaneously provides novice support with the help of visual interface elements and wizards, and the means to master advanced levels of packaging

Integration Package Store
The integration of the Package Store in RayPack Studio occurs via the packaging tool RayPack. This tool can be used to further adjust software needed to maintain typical IT environments. RayPack provides direct access to the available packages in the Package Store. The modifications available are usually sufficient to attain the desired installation target via deployment systems. If required, additional RayPack Studio modules referred to as PackDesigner and PackRecorder are available. With minimal effort, these tools enable advanced adjustments which cannot be realized without deeper insight and/or modification of the original resources.
