Denmark Advertising Agency Optimizes Workflow with ExtremeZ-IP Solution
Press release from the issuing company
May 25, 2005 (Arlington, VA) – enVision, one of Denmark's largest full-service advertising agencies, announced today its success optimizing communications and workflow processes between Macintosh and Windows platforms using the latest version of Group Logic's award-winning ExtremeZ-IP product. enVision has used several different Macintosh-to-Windows file sharing programs over the years, including Microsoft’s Services for Macintosh (SFM) and MacServerIP from CyanSoft. "The most important thing in file sharing is the need for speed and stability," explains Thomas Kaaber, Director of IT for enVision. "When we were using MacServerIP, we had issues communicating with the Windows servers. With ExtremeZ-IP we don't have those problems anymore. We have a very stable working environment."
ExtremeZ-IP 4.0 delivers higher availability, scalability and performance for cross-platform environments. Its advanced caching strategy, radically reduced memory usage and other key features (such as single sign-on authentication and active-active clustering) translate into significant operational benefits for customers. Greater control and flexibility create streamlined administrative support and increased functionality.
Since implementing ExtremeZ-IP, enVision has also seen significant value in Group Logic's ongoing support and product development. "Group Logic knows what they are doing," says Kaaber. "They are fast in making updates when systems change – whether Apple or Microsoft. This is especially important when using a product that has so much effect on a creative house like ours. They deliver upgrades and continuous improvements that don't sacrifice the stability or speed, or adversely impact our business operations."
ExtremeZ-IP is used by thousands of customers worldwide who depend on it to deliver reliable file sharing between their Mac desktops and Windows file servers. The product is the only solution on the market that fully integrates both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 with Windows 2003 and 2000 Server versions as well as Windows 2003 Storage Server and Windows XP Professional. The newest version, ExtremeZ-IP 4.0, provides stable and compatible Windows-based file and print server platforms for Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 users.
