Operating System Company Phone Server Software Server Hardware Comments
Mac OS 8.5 Apple Computer 408/996-1010 AppleShare IP 6.1 Apple Power Macintosh G3/333 with a 333MHz PowerPC, 128MB of RAM, and a two-drive RAID Level 0 array. Fastest all-around server in file transfers, but disappointing print-spooling results.
Windows NT 4.0 Microsoft 425/882-8080 No software needed for Macintosh compatibility. Dell Dimension XPS D333 with a 333MHz Pentium II with MMX, 128MB of RAM, and a two-drive RAID Level 0 array. Affordable server option that shines in print commands but is sluggish at file copying.
IRex 6.5.1 Silicon Graphics Computer Systems 650/933-1980 Helios EtherShare 2.5.1 Silicon Graphics Origin 200 with a 225MHz R10000 CPU, 128MB of RAM, and a two-drive RAID Level 0 array. Reasonable solution for multiplatform office, but too pricey for mere file sharing.
