“I’ve worked with various versions of Apple’s Mac OS X Server for nearly a decade now. Each new release has brought major advances to the company’s server software in terms of overall features, performance and ease of administration. The most recent iteration, version 10.6 — a.k.a. Snow Leopard Server — is no exception,” Ryan Faas reports for Computerworld.
“Snow Leopard Server is a tremendous value. It offers a range of features that aid collaboration and mobility for small businesses through enterprises. The improvements in collaborative tools will probably be adopted in education, one of Apple’s core markets. The simple licensing structure and lowered price are enough to make the platform competitive,” Faas reports.
“For organizations that already run in part or entirely on Mac OS X Server, this is a definite upgrade. With so many new technologies and under-the-hood changes, though, you’ll definitely want to spend some time testing and getting to know the new face of Mac OS X Server before making the jump,” Faas reports. “For organizations running on other platforms, Snow Leopard Server’s lower cost and the maturity of so many technologies originally introduced in Leopard Server make it a product to seriously think about, particularly for smaller organizations needing a simple yet powerful option.”
