Novell, the eBusiness solutions and Net services folks, say that Novell NetWare 6 has arrived. NetWare 6 is the latest version of the platform for delivering Net services across all types of networks, storage systems and client desktops.
NetWare 6 can be plugged into existing networks to integrate those networks into one Net, according to Michael Simpson, vice president of Novell’s platform solutions team. What’s more, NetWare 6 allows Mac, Windows, Unix, Linux and Web-based client workstations to connect and store files and data on NetWare servers without any Novell client software on the workstation.
NetWare 6 licensing is user-based, meaning a user can access the network at any time, from any device and any location based on that user license. It provides services such as:
Novell iFolder, which lets users access and synchronize files anywhere in the world, across all types of networks and on any Internet-enabled machine;
iPrint, for Internet printing;
NetWare WebAccess, which offers users access via a Web browser to files, printers, e-mail, calendar, corporate address book, etc., all through a customizable portal that’s platform agnostic.
The regular list price for NetWare 6 is US$184 per user license. Within 30 days, NetWare 6 will be available in Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Chinese Traditional and Chinese Simplified. Additional NetWare 6 product and pricing information is
