Mac files are handled properly with “dt” enhanced file commands including rm, mv, cp, set, ls, mkdir, touch, chmod, chown, chgrp, sync, etc. This allows powerful scripted workflows to support Mac data and resources as well as additional Windows file streams.
Time Machine backups to EtherShare volumes are supported. The “HELIOS TM Image Builder” and “HELIOS TM Browser” utilities offer customized backup disk images and backup status monitoring.
EtherShare supports AFP privileges, fast “Find File”, Alias, etc. All server disk space including NFS volumes, DVD, etc. can be re-shared. Mac files are stored in a way that Mac, Windows, and UNIX can fully share documents. Extremely fast: using 1 Gigabit Ethernet yields over 80 MByte/sec to Mac clients; more than 1000 MByte/sec sustained total server throughput.
