Apple News: Leopard Server “sleek, fast and business-ready—even for mixed environments”

Calling it a “sexy beast,” Joe Hernick (networkcomputing.com) considers Mac OS X Server 10.5 “a substantial upgrade to Apple’s server offering, and we recommend shops running 10.4 to investigate.” In fact, Hernick find it “ready for work. The e-mail platform connects to Active Directory and bundles AV and anti-spam software without pesky client access licenses. A spiffed-up calendar application can serve as a group scheduler. VPN services can host 500 users per Intel Xserve. In a first for Apple, IP failover provides high availability, and TimeMachine enables easily deployed server-based client backup. Leopard Server can even mimic an NT domain controller.”
