Group Logic Ships ExtremeZ-IP 3.2

Big Picture

Group Logic has begun shipping version 3.2 of its user-based ExtremeZ-IP file and print-sharing product. Improvements include diagnostic options to help users identify problems such as automatic debug logs and "smart" problem detection technology. There is also increased gathering of statistics, such as numbers of connected users, volumes, and files of folders per volume.

ExtremeZ-IP integrates both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 and Windows XP Professional and Windows 2003/200/NT Server as well as Windows 2003 Storage Server. It addresses cross-platform interoperability and enables greater permission control with the flexibility of using either Macintosh or Windows permissions.

The company also has released an OEM-only version of its ExtremeZ-IP for Windows XP Professional. The product includes the AppleTalk network protocol, allowing RIP, OPI server, DAM, and workflow- solution providers to fill the gap left by Microsoft's discontinuation of Windows 2000 Professional OS and its removal of AppleTalk from the replacement Windows XP Professional OS.
