Evolphin Zoom Updater (EzUpdater)

Evolphin Zoom Updater (referred to as EZ in this document) is an application to manage Zoom software (client or server) installation on the target machine.
EZ is capable of installing, updating and rollback of Zoom software. Once EZ is installed future upgrades can be automated and pushed out to all clients without human intervention.

EZ only supports Zoom builds released after Yangtze (v6.0 and above).
The current alpha release supports only EZ Linux server and EZ Mac client updaters.

 

The updates to Zoom clients & server builds can be remotely managed by one or more designated administrators. EZ is also designed to not expect all the Zoom installation machines to have to be connected to the internet. A single dedicated download server can manage the downloads from the Evolphin website if an enterprise setup requires such an arrangement.

  1. In order to install Zoom using EZ, please download and install the EzUpdater distribution from your support account or a link sent by the Evolphin Support team
