Team ASA Offers Improved Features for MacServerIP for Windows-NT at Seybold
San Diego, CA -- Team ASA Inc., manufacturer of high-performance networking
products for professional PrePress and Multimedia users, announces
significant upgrades to Cyan Software's MacServerIP. MacServerIP is the
first AppleShare type server for Windows-NT to support the Apple File
Protocol over TCP/IP. MacServerIP is 200% to 400% times faster than
Windows-NT Services For Macintosh (SFM). MacServerIP users access the NT
server via the standard AppleShare IP Chooser interface.
The upgrades include a simplified user interface, an installation wizard
feature which automates the configuration of multiple network cards, and
improved searching capabilities. MacServerIP has also been optimized for
Windows NT cluster servers and can share volumes with millions of files.
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 PC and MAC CD-ROMs and removable media, supports
CD-ROM changes (SFM does not), sharing of non-NTFS volumes, and remote
administration. MacServerIP is currently the only AFP/IP server which
allows all users to connect to it by using the Macintosh Chooser,
regardless how many NICs are installed in the server,
"MacServerIP has become the de facto standard for Appleshare IP on NT
platforms", said Mark Murray, President of Team ASA.
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
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.
MacServerIP is available for both Windows NT and Alpha NT. Pricing for the
Intel version is as follows, MacServerIP 10 users is $495.00, 20 users
$895.00, 40 users $1,495.00, 100 users $2,395, Unlimited users $3,795.00.
