Mac OS X Server 10.4.3 (10 User) Software Install (DVD) Bundle
With Mac OS X Server v10.4.3, Apple has integrated popular open source software technologies and created innovative management tools to make it easy to provide powerful standards-based server solutions. With over 200 new features, including access control lists and secure instant messaging, Mac OS X Server is a comprehensive platform that is ideal for small businesses and workgroups. This 10-client edition of Apple's award-winning UNIX-based server operating system is the easiest way to deploy powerful Internet, network and small workgroup services.
Mac OS X Server brings the power of 64-bit to mainstream server computing. With access to massive amounts of memory through 64-bit addressing and high performance, super accurate math calculations, Mac OS X Server is the ideal platform for the most demanding scientific, technical and creative compute needs.
Cross-platform file and print services
Native file and print services for Mac, Windows and Linux are built in so you can give everyone access to storage space on the server and shared Postscript and raster (inkjet) printers. You can even host home directories on the server, allowing users to access their documents and personal settings from any platform, anywhere on the network. Mac OS X Server is the ultimate platform for file sharing in mixed-platform workflows with support for the native rich file permissions of both Mac OS X and Windows--a capability unprecedented on any UNIX- or Linux-based platform.
Directory services and authentication
Mac OS X Server features the Open Directory server, a robust, scalable directory services architecture based entirely on open standards. The integrated authentication authority uses Kerberos to provide strong authentication and single sign-on to authorized network resources. The Open Directory server features integrated NT Domain services--using Samba 3--for providing Windows workgroups with login and authentication services, roaming profiles, and network home directories. Open Directory can be replicated across multiple network servers for scalability and maximum service availability.
Mac OS X Server adds an intuitive interface to the open source Apache web server, making it easy to host reliable, high-performance websites. It features a front-end cache that improves performance of static HTML pages, as well as built-in support for collaborative publishing, database integration, and server-side scripting--allowing you to host dynamic content and sophisticated web services. Strong 128-bit encryption and realm-based authentication provides high-grade security for e-commerce solutions and intranet sites.
With the built-in JBoss application server and full support for JSPs, Java Servlets, SOAP and XML-RPC, Mac OS X Server provides a complete solution for hosting Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. It also features powerful deployment tools that simplify configuration of application resources and EJB components.
Keep your internal communications private. The new iChat Server provides secure file transfer and instant messaging with SSL/TLS encryption and password-based authentication. iChat Server works with Apple's iChat AV conferencing software in Mac OS X Tiger and popular open source Jabber clients on Windows, Linux and PDAs. Publish and syndicate content on the web using the new Weblog server. This easy-to-use service supports HTML, RSS and ATOM protocols, user and group blogs, calendar-based navigation, integration with Open Directory and comes setup to use one of several Apple-designed blog themes.
QuickTime Streaming Server and QuickTime Broadcaster provide an end-to-end solution for live encoding and streaming digital media. QuickTime supports MPEG-4, the new industry standard for delivering broadcast-quality audio and video over the Internet. The QTSS Publisher application makes it easy to hint media, create and edit playlists, and push content out to the streaming server from any Mac OS X Tiger system.
The comprehensive, easy-to-use mail services in Mac OS X Server are based on popular open source projects, including Postfix, Cyrus, Mailman, and SquirrelMail. Full support for Internet mail protocols ensures compatibility with standards-based mail clients on Mac, Windows, and Linux systems, and built-in SSL/TLS encryption provides secure mail transport. To protect your organization from unwanted mail and destructive viruses, Mac OS X Server integrates two popular open source projects: SpamAssassin for adaptive junk mail-filtering and ClamAV for virus detection and quarantine.
Workgroup Manager simplifies directory-based management of network environments with an intuitive interface for managing user identities, group relationships, computer settings, and access to network resources. Innovative system imaging capabilities in Mac OS X Server streamline system deployment and software distribution: Network Install provides automated software installation; NetBoot allows multiple Mac clients to start up from a single server-based disk image; Software Update server hosts local copies of Apple software updates and allows administrators to control access to available updates.
Networking and security
Core network services in Mac OS X Server--including DNS, NAT, DHCP, and Firewall--are integrated into the Server Admin utility, making it easier to set up and secure your local area network. The built-in Virtual Private Network server provides secure remote access to your LAN from anywhere on the Internet. Using L2TP and PPTP tunneling protocols, the VPN server supports encrypted, authenticated IP connections for Mac, Windows, and Linux clients. Gateway Setup Assistant helps you to quickly and easily set up a Mac OS X Server to share your connection with the Internet with your local network.
Xgrid makes it easy to turn an ad hoc group of Macs into a low-cost supercomputer by streamlining the process of assembling nodes, submitting jobs, and retrieving results. Scientists, animators, and digital content creators now have the opportunity to easily run a single job across multiple computers at once, dramatically improving performance and responsiveness.
Industry-leading tools for secure remote administration make services easy to set up and manage from any Mac OS X Tiger system, anywhere on the Internet. Server Admin provides a graphical user interface for configuring and monitoring network and Internet services, and support for SSH2 enables secure remote administration from the command-line. Mac OS X Server also supports the open-standard SNMPv3 protocol for integration with third-party monitoring and management software. Automatic Setup simplifies data center deployments by enabling you to set up multiple servers from configuration settings stored in a directory server, your iPod, or other external FireWire or USB storage device.
