For Immediate Release
Team ASA Distributes MacServerIP for Windows-NT in U.S.
San Diego, CA — Team ASA Inc., manufacturer of high-performance
networking products for professional PrePress and Multimedia users,
today began U.S. distribution of Cyan Software’s MacServerIP to the
prepress and digital media markets. MacServerIP is the first
AppleShare type server for Windows-NT to support the Apple File
Protocol over TCP/IP. MacServerIP is 2 to 4 times faster than
Windows-NT Services For Macintosh (SFM). MacServerIP users access the
NT server via the standard AppleShare IP interface.
The MacServerIP product represents a significant advance in
AppleShare-type (AFP) file servers for the Windows NT platform,
offering a number of features not found in other products, including
support for AFP-over-IP, excellent support of CD-ROMs and removable
media, supports CD-ROM changes (SFM does not), sharing of non-NTFS
volumes, and remote administration. “This is a win win situation for
Windows and Macintosh integration in a seamless fashion”, said Mark
Murray, President of Team ASA. “Some customers are reporting 15
megabytes per second file transfers using MacServerIP”, said Murray.
While offering better performance and more flexibility than Windows
NT’s Services for Macintosh, MacServerIP is tightly integrated with
NT’s security environment, allowing administrators to establish and
maintain a single database of users, groups, and access privileges,
unlike other third-party products which require maintenance of a
separate database of AFP users.
Use of the same file format as NT’s MacFile Service also allows for
easy migration from NT’s Services for Macintosh to MacServerIP;
existing MacFile server volumes can be shared immediately by
MacServerIP, with no reconfiguration necessary. In fact, MacServerIP
can run simultaneously with NT’s MacFile Service.
Team ASA begins shipping MacServer on April 1st, 1999. Pricing for
MacServerIP products is as follows, MacServerIP 10 user is $495.00,
20 user $895.00, 40 user $1,495.00, 100 user $2,395, 250 user
$3,795.00. Pricing for the Team ASA’s Stallion-GE-II Gigabit Ethernet
