Group Logic debuts ExtremeZ-IP 4.0 File Server

updated 11:30 am EDT, Mon October 11, 2004

ExtremeZ-IP File Server

Group Logic today announced version 4.0 of its software. Expected to be available later this year, the upgrade introduces a new product architecture as well as significant improvements in the product's scalability, performance and compatibility with Mac OS X. Group Logic says that the file server software is the only AppleShare file server on the market that fully integrates both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 with Windows 2003/2000 Server versions as well as Windows 2003 Storage Server and Windows XP Professional. Version 4.0 offers faster startup times, higher availability and dramatically reduced memory usage, as well as superior performance under load.

It also offers new active-active clustering capabilities to allow customers to distribute multiple virtual Mac file servers across multiple nodes, with immediate failover. ExtremeZ-IP File Server 4.0 also brings support for Kerberos, the network authentication protocol adopted as a standard part of Windows 2000/2003 and Active Directory and Mac OS X. ExtremeZ-IP now protects user names and passwords on the network without requiring multiple user logins. ExtremeZ-IP is the only AppleShare (AFP) server for Windows on the market that supports Kerberos, according to the company. Version 4.0 supports Mac OS 10.3 Panther and will be updated to be fully compatible with Mac OS 10.4 Tiger when it ships next year.
