Novell is getting closer to the Microsoft world by integrating its desktop management system with Citrix' thin client technology, and launching an update for Novell Directory Services (NDS) for NT.
The networking giant is combining Citrix? Winframe and Metaframe thin client tools with its Zero Effort Networking Works (Zen Works) desktop manager. This will enable Citrix thin client users to use any device and call up their personal applications from the Citrix server.
The product will be available by the end of September. Users will need to purchase Novell Netware 4.11 with the latest version of NDS, or Netware 5.0.
NDS for NT 2.0 takes Novell a step closer to having a native version of the directory service on NT. It enables NDS information to be stored on an NT server, which does away with the need to install Netware at every branch level. Netware executables and utilities will remain on the network operating system?s server, however.
