ExtremeZ-IP File Server 4

Group Logic today released , a major upgrade to its Macintosh file connectivity software for Windows servers. The new version of ExtremeZ-IP introduces significant improvements in the product's scalability and is the first and only Windows-based file server solution to fully support both Mac OS 9/X. Version 4 features a re-architected internal structure and an advanced caching strategy that offers Immediate startup, new active-active clustering capabilities for better control of node resources, reduced memory usage, configuration of multiple virtual servers on the Windows cluster, better performance under high loads, Kerberos and Active Directory support, and improved flexibility in failover options and functionality.

"Every year, ExtremeZ-IP customers are storing more files and
connecting more users to fewer servers. Many are installing to
clusters to increase uptime," says T. Reid Lewis, President of Group
Logic. "So we've re-architected ExtremeZ-IP 4.0 to support millions of
files on massive, multi-node clusters with zero indexing time offering
greater control and stability."




The ExtremeZ-IP 4.0 product line provides stable and compatible
Windows-based file and print server platforms for Mac OS X and Mac OS
9 users. It is the only Windows-based file server to support the
latest version of the Apple File Protocol (AFP) and to be actively
enhanced and maintained. The 4.0 upgrade is aligned to support Mac OS
10.3; Group Logic says that it will be fully compatible with Mac OS 10.4 "Tiger" when it ships later this year



As with prior releases, ExtremeZ-IP allows customers to eliminate the
legacy AppleTalk protocol from their networks by using standard TCP/IP
protocols. ExtremeZ-IP is used by thousands of customers worldwide who
depend on reliable file sharing between their Mac desktops and Windows
file servers.
