Suitespot 3.1, Netscape's family of Internet and intranet servers, has been simplified and given increased management functions because resellers found it too complicated to explain to customers. "We have listened to our resellers describe the problems they were experiencing and have devised a new approach," said Sam Sethi, European product marketing manager.
Administration of all nine servers that are available with Suitespot will now be performed from a single application which is accessed via the Communicator browser. Suitespot 3.1 will be released in two varieties. A standard edition, available in Q3 this year, is designed to run an intranet and includes the Directory, Enterprise, Messaging, Collabra and Calendar servers. The professional edition, available in Q4 this year, adds the Mission Control toolset and the Compass server for organisations expanding from an intranet to an extranet.
Netscape has adopted a single pricing model for the Suitespot 3.1 packages based on the number of users. Previously, some packages were charged per server, but the company said this had caused confusion among resellers and users and was therefore being dropped. For small businesses, Netscape has updated its Fasttrack server, which now includes a search engine supporting Java and the LDAP standard.
