For organizations or departments that have light or occasional needs to access file resources on UNIX or NFS-enabled devices, OpenText NFS Gateway is the perfect solution. It offers compatibility, performance and reliability without adding management overhead.
By empowering a Microsoft Windows Server with the functionalities of an NFS client, and allowing it to share the access to NFS resources with downstream Windows-based clients, OpenText NFS Gateway turns the Microsoft Windows server into a software gateway between Microsoft and NFS networks. OpenText NFS Gateway has zero software footprint on downstream Windows-based clients. It provides IT organizations with a single point of access control and resource management through tight integration with enterprise directory services, such as Microsoft Active Directory. OpenText NFS Gateway greatly simplifies cross-platform resource sharing with minimal impact on both the Windows-based desktop image and the integrity of the hosts.
