LSI Logic Storage Systems, Inc. today announced the availability of TotalNET Advanced Server (TAS) 6.1, LSI Logic's next generation system for consolidating heterogeneous servers and storage systems.
According to LSI Logic, TotalNET Advanced Server 6.1, which is available now, features a unique set of resource consolidation functions including file sharing among heterogeneous computers, centralized administration of shared storage, and consolidated authentication services using LDAP or legacy directories.
TotalNET Advanced Server 6.1 permits file and print sharing among Windows, NetWare, Macintosh, Unix Network File System (NFS) and Distributed File System (DFS) client computers. Resource sharing across heterogeneous systems is made possible through support of multiple transport protocols such as TCP/IP, NetBEUI, IPX, SPX, and AppleTalk. Thus, a file created by a Windows 2000 user is easily shared with Unix and Macintosh users and appears native to all.
