MANTA: Install, Configure and Update!

MANTA: Install, Configure and Update!

MANTA Business
August 30, 2018

Last week MANTA 3.22 came out, and with it came some pretty major changes for our customers. One of them is that we are launching three new applications as closed beta versions for testing: an installer, configurator, and an updater!

First, we are going to launch and test them on some PoC cases. Below is a little breakdown of what you can be excited about:


Our first, one of a kind installation wizard for MANTA. It will guide you through the installation process step by step. It’s so simple (and with pictures!) that it will make it possible for absolutely anyone to install MANTA!


The configurator will allow you to enable all of MANTA’s configuration files in a friendly GUI environment. It will make it easier for you to manage the resources from which MANTA uploads metadata.

This is your new 24/7 support software! The updater will make sure that your MANTA is up-to-date and make it easy for everyone to work with MANTA for the long-run. Up until now, MANTA users have had to manually import files for every update. Since we release updates quarterly, it will be quite nice to have a helper for the updating process.

Well, we try our best to make working with MANTA easier for you. Let us know at if you have any suggestions!
