Jentla, which took six-months to develop, is based on a manager and node model systemthat can manage up to 1000 related or separate Joomla sites.

“Combined with our Cloud-based Hosting solution for Joomla, Jentla enables enterprises with multiple website and those pursuing a hyperlocal strategy to radically improve the efficiency of their site build and update processes while reducing their support costs for both systems admin and content management,” Hickey said.
