"Novell, Inc. (NASDAQ:NOVL) today announced availability of the Novell Native File Access Pack, which gives users of Windows, Macintosh, UNIX and Linux desktop operating systems access to storage on Novell NetWare servers without any Novell software on their workstations. Managed through Novell eDirectory, Novell Native File Access Pack lets users of these disparate systems access NetWare storage right out of the box using standard Internet protocols and the networking features included in each operating system, giving organizations a unified network that is less complex, faster and more secure. The Novell Native File Access Pack further establishes Novell's leadership in managing heterogeneous network environments, providing companies the freedom to choose what works best for them and helping them leverage the technologies they have.

With the Novell Native File Access Pack, users are able to efficiently retrieve and store the information they need on the network, regardless of the type of workstation they have, while system administrators gain improved management capabilities, plus the proven security and reliability benefits of NetWare. Novell is extending its industry-leading cross-platform support in the server realm to the desktop, ensuring customers can use the technology they want while still maintaining the security and manageability of their network."
