4D,Inc. Releases New Server App

4D, Inc. has released an upgrade for WebSTAR Server Suite, bringing it to version V. 4D WebSTAR Server Suite V is a server app designed to take full advantage of OS Xis speed. The new version has several performance enhancements aimed at preemptive multitasking and faster networking. According to 4D, Inc:

4D, Inc., publishers of the 4th Dimension RAD/RDBMS Environment and 4D WebSTAR Server Suite, today announced the immediate availability of 4D WebSTAR Server Suite V, now native for Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server.

4D WebSTAR Server Suite V is completely redesigned to take advantage of the benefits of Mac OS Xis multiprocessor support, preemptive multitasking and faster networking, which result in amazing server speeds. Beyond multi-thread processes, a redesign of the caching architecture makes all server modules radically faster.

Continuing with a tradition of ease-of-use, 4D WebSTAR Server Suite V is now even easier to administer than ever. Now, Administrators can delegate administrative authority to virtual hosts quickly and easily with reusable settings for realms including allow/deny security access, without compromising administration integrity or security of the entire system. Remote administration is now more flexible than ever, and secure via SSL. A wide range of logging options provides even easier server monitoring.

Security is preset out of the box with secure default settings, easily configured SSL for encrypted traffic, flexible access control with realm matching designed for HFS plus volumes, and MD5-digest authentication. 4D WebSTAR Server Suite V comes with a radically faster Search engine, an integrated FTP server and integrated WebDAV HTTP file service support.
