Xserve manages docs

In addition, the solution makes laboratory records and data readily available throughout R&D organizations. Rescentris says that CERF is a secure, 21CFR 11 compliant system that centralizes scientific content management and record-keeping.

"This enables us to accommodate many government and academic clients who work with mixed platforms and operating systems."
Rescentris has also recently become an Apple VAR (Value-added Reseller) and is currently offering a promotional bundle which ships the CERF-Notebook Server pre-installed and configured on Power Mac G5 computers for labs and research organizations.
