Question:

Does ExtremeZ-IP support Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista?

Answer:

With the removal of Services for Macintosh from Windows Server 2008, Group Logic recognizes the need of customers for a supported, compatible AFP server solution on the Windows platform.

ExtremeZ-IP 5.3 or later has been certified for use on Windows Server 2008.

Support for Windows Server 2008 clusters was added in ExtremeZ-IP 6.0 and later.

As you consider the options and alternatives for a solution as replacement for SFM, you should consider ExtremeZ-IP. The product is an ideal replacement for Services for Macintosh as it replaces nearly ever feature of SFM, Print Services for Macintosh and AppleTalk for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista. ExtremeZ-IP offers many additional features and innovations added by Apple and Group Logic as the Apple Filing Protocol has evolved from the original AppleShare to the modern AFP v3.2 functionality of Mac OS X Leopard. Please refer to the comparison chart. For a review of the possible solutions to consider as you research your plan replace SFM, please review the whitepaper The End of Services For Mac SFM Evaluating Your Replacement Options Dec 2008.
