Microsoft Windows Services For Unix - SFU = DOA?
Microsoft is about to start charging US$149 for its limited collection of Unix-compatible utilities for Windows NT/2000 clients. We forecast a minimal market

windows nfs  - SFU runs on Windows NT & 2000 only. A better product name might be Microsoft UNIX Services for Windows. The core product includes: NFS Client & Server UNIX UID/GID - Windows Domain/AD Name Mapping Telnet Server & Client Active Directory storage of NIS-hosted objects UNIX-Windows Password Synchronization Korn shell for Windows More interestingly, Microsoft is even saying the dreaded L-word (Linux).

Microsoft to Purchase Softway Systems


Microsoft Corp. announced on September 20th that it will purchase privately held Softway Systems Inc., a developer of Unix/NT interoperability software.

windows nfs  Unix users migrate to Windows NT. Market Impact This acquisition will provide Microsoft with a stronger position in the Unix market, since Unix applications will be able to run natively on Windows NT. Softway also intends to develop a version of its Interix software that will support 64-bit Unix applications on the upcoming (mid-2000) 64-bit Windows, which we believe will further add to Microsoft's strength. Although this will not increase overall market growth, it should lead to market consolidation. Read More

The 2008 Handbook of Application Delivery: A Guide to Decision Making


IT organizations can no longer manage networks in isolation from the applications they support, requiring a shift from focusing on devices to a focus on performance. But a number of factors complicate the task of ensuring acceptable application performance, including the lack of visibility into application performance. Learn tips to plan, optimize, manage, and control your application performance and improve delivery.

The typical company, for example, has many more branch offices than data centers. Hence, the question of whether to deploy a solution in a limited tactical manner vs. a broader strategic manner applies more to Branch Office Optimization Solutions than it does to AFEs. Also, AFEs are based on open standards and as a result a company can deploy AFEs from different Read More

How to Boost Your WAN to Top Speed


While globalization can bridge distances and enhance communication, the story is a little different when it comes to wide area networks (WANs) and their effects on branch application performance. High-latency connections and chattiness cause slowed data transmission, and consequently, decreased user productivity. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: a fast branch office application delivery infrastructure.

When a packet drops, for example, data recovery mode reduces the window in half and resends missing packets and/or the entire TCP window. Chatty Protocols Chatty protocols - such as CIFS (Windows drag and drop) and MAPI (email) - require several communication exchanges in order to open a connection and transfer data. It may take tens or hundreds of round trips to complete a single transaction. Packet Loss Dropped packets can impact network Read More

Workload Automation: The Key to Managing Windows Server Sprawl


Many companies use data centers running processes across multiple Windows servers using built-in schedulers instead of automating nightly batch streams on a mainframe. Simple schedulers work well on individual servers with only a handful of tasks, but scheduling becomes more difficult once you include dependencies, such as incoming files, the behavior of other applications, or the completion of business processes on other servers. Workload automation using a job scheduling system can save money and reduce complexity in the long term—read this white paper to learn more about solutions to "server sprawl".
