Introducing the UnixWare 7.1.4 Small Business Edition

The UnixWare 7.1.4 Small Business Edition (SBE) is the new Edition for customers that need a full-featured, low cost server platform for supporting edge of network services or as a file and print server. It is configured and priced to meet a wide range of needs, including support for a small business or for low budget pilot projects that need to quickly scale up to production if the pilot is successful.

The Small Business Edition contains all of the same performance, reliability and scalability features that you have come to expect from UnixWare, and is packaged with a single user and 1 GB of memory. Like all the UnixWare Editions, additional users, and memory can be added to the SBE. However, when customers consider licensing additional resources for the SBE, they may find it more economical to “cross-grade” to a Business Edition instead of licensing additional resources for the SBE.

The default configurations of the most popular edition of UnixWare have been redefined to provide even greater value to your business.
