Apple Introduces Mac OS X Server Snow Leopard

SAN FRANCISCO, June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Apple(R) today unveiled a Developer Preview of Mac OS(R) X Server Snow Leopard(TM), the next major release of the world’s easiest to use server operating system. Snow Leopard Server is a full 64-bit UNIX server operating system based on open standards that is up to twice as fast as its predecessor.* Snow Leopard Server includes innovative new features such as Podcast Producer 2, for automating the creation and publishing of podcasts, and Mobile Access Server with secure access to firewall-protected network services for iPhone(TM) and Mac(R). Snow Leopard Server is priced more affordably than ever at $499 with unlimited client licenses and will ship in September 2009.

“Snow Leopard Server is our best and fastest server operating system ever, and unlimited client licenses make it an incredible value for any size business,” said Bertrand Serlet, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “With easy to use new features like Podcast Producer 2 and Mobile Access Server, anyone can set up and manage its powerful services with just a few clicks.”

Snow Leopard Server is a full 64-bit operating system designed to take advantage of multi-core processors and address massive amounts of memory, while remaining fully compatible with 32-bit applications. Up to twice as fast as its predecessor, Snow Leopard Server easily handles the most demanding server operations including web and application hosting, file sharing and mail.

Podcast Producer 2 includes the new Podcast Composer application, which automates the entire production process, making it easy to create podcasts with a customized, consistent look and feel. With just a few clicks, Podcast Composer creates a workflow to add titles, transitions and effects, save to a desired format and share to wikis, blogs, iTunes(R), iTunes U, Final Cut(R) Server or the new Podcast Library.

The new Mobile Access Server is a convenient, easy way for iPhone and Mac users to access secured network services, including corporate websites, online business applications, email, calendars and contacts. Without requiring additional software, Mobile Access Server provides strong encryption and authentication between the user’s iPhone or Mac and a private network.

Additional new features in Snow Leopard Server include:
— Wiki Server 2, which improves its online collaboration with the
ability to view wiki content on iPhone and preview attachments with
Quick Look on any modern browser;
— the new Address Book Server, based on the CardDAV open standard, which
provides a central location for users to store and access personal
contacts across multiple Macs and synchronized iPhones;
— iCal(R) Server 2, based on the CalDAV open standard, which includes
web-based calendar access and the ability to view meeting invitations
and details on iPhone using iPhone OS 3.0;
— a new Mail Server engine that supports push email so users receive
immediate access to new messages;
— QuickTime(R) X HTTP Live Streaming, which allows dynamic adjustment of
movie playback quality to suit the available network speed;
— NetRestore, a new feature in System Image Utility, that allows easy
custom image restore over a network; and

– iPhone Configuration Utility, which simplifies the setup of multiple
iPhones with configuration information, security policies, mail
settings and certificates needed to connect to and communicate with
enterprise systems.
