on Monday offered some details about its forthcoming release of
Portfolio 7 Server, a new version of its Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution for workgroups. Porfolio 7 Server was first announced
this past February alongside the new Portfolio 7 client software, but this announcement today fleshed out some further details.
Portfolio Server will debut with connection modules for Microsoft SQL Server when it ships for the Mac in May, following the PC product’s April release — the same schedule Extensis cited for the Portfolio 7 client product at last month’s NAB event. In July, Extensis plans to release engines for Oracle and MySQL databases.
Portfolio 7 Server will be available for about US$3,500. System requirements will call for Mac OS X v10.2 “Jaguar” or higher, with Apache 1.3 necessary for the NetPublish module.
