NuView, Inc. today announced immediate availability of StorageX a storage management solution for Microsoft Windows environments.
NuView said StorageX works with Microsoft's Distributed File System (Dfs) technology to provide means for viewing, accessing, and managing files that are distributed throughout a WAN. Dfs is a network sever component that Microsoft includes with its Windows 2000 and NT server products. Dfs also supports NFS and Netware file systems.
"Microsoft Dfs is a strategic file server virtualization infrastructure that dramatically lowers the TCO associated with customers' file services by building logical namespaces that span entire organizations and removing the hard dependencies between the physical and logical location of the data," said Jay Jamison, Group Product Manager at Microsoft. "Microsoft is very pleased that NuView is shipping StorageX, as it will help our mutual customers take full advantage of scalable enterprise storage on Microsoft networks. StorageX technology is an example of the type of industry innovation made possible by the open architecture of Windows NT."
