Apple Announces Mac OS X “Jaguar” Server, World’s Easiest-to-Manage
UNIX-Based Server Software

“Jaguar” Server Includes More Than 50 New Features & Powerful Network
Management Tools

MACWORLD EXPO, NEW YORK-July 17, 2002-Apple=AE today announced Mac=AE OS X
Server version 10.2 “Jaguar” Server, the next major release of Apple’s Mac
OS X Server software that combines the industrial strength of UNIX with the
ease of use of the Mac. “Jaguar” Server introduces more than 50 new
features, including powerful new NetBoot and NetInstall network management
tools, based on Apple’s new LDAPv3 Open Directory architecture that
simplifies user and computer management for business, education and
government customers. As an active member of the Open Source community,
Apple has distributed Open Directory technology through the Darwin Open
Source Project.

“Jaguar Server is the world’s easiest-to-manage UNIX-based server software
and unleashes the power of our new Xserve rack-mount server,” said Philip
Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
“Combining affordable hardware with powerful open-standards based software,
Xserve and Jaguar Server offer the perfect networking solution for Mac,
UNIX and Windows environments.”

“Jaguar” Server key features include:

* new NetBoot for booting multiple Macintosh=AE systems from the
network instead of their local disk drive for making operating system
administration as easy as managing a single computer;
* new Network Install for automating the installation of Mac OS X and
application software directly from the network;
* new Workgroup Manager, a powerful new management console that works
with any LDAPv3 directory server to provide centralized management of
users, groups and computers;
* new Open Directory, an easy-to-setup LDAPv3 directory server with a
secure built-in password server;
* new QuickTime=AE Streaming Server 4 and QuickTime Broadcaster, which
captures and encodes QuickTime content in MPEG-4 for live streaming over
the web;
* improved file and print services including support for quotas,
secure file transfers and NFS resharing via AFP;
* improved web services including support for SOAP, XML-RPC,
server-optimized Java VM, JSPs and Java Servlets; and
* remote server management including the new Server Status Tool and
support for SNMP.
